To get a seat by the fire on a cold night was quite a treat lol, but then there was the food, wow. The fries were to die for, perfect, and the salad was excellent. My partner said the ribs were the best he's had in a long time. The atmosphere made you feel right at home, we will be back

Excellent place to take grown up children in their mid twenties. Lots of favourite food choices like ribs, steak, chicken and fish. Great selection of pizzas and salads. The only downside was we were so full that couldn't try desserts. Will definitely come back next time to try them. A+++

Huge menu and when you think you've decided there is more on the back. Roast pork was delish and my partner enjoyed the fish n chips, Murphys stout on tap to go down, atmosphere a little noisy with after work punters but it's a working class type of pub, no complaints though, we all need them. Great attentive service and friendly staff, been here several times before and will keep coming back

The service and environment were fabulous, made us feel very welcome, and even had coloring for my 4 year old.
The children's meals are not very small, so for children would recommend ordering a side instead.

My entree of a Rosemary & Feta flat bread was the best - it was pizza size and tasted so good. Ribs were tasty.
We had exceptional service from Maria.
Great atmosphere watching everyone play pool and having fun.

Had roast meals which were excellent value and of generous size for the price. Service was good although there were not many people in at the time, there were plenty of staff on duty.
The staff were welcoming and attentive. We will return and can recommend to others to enjoy

The staff were all friendly from when we walked in till when we left. Our waitress was prompt and took down our orders correctly. Food was great - the creamy bacon & mushroom fettuccine was delish! I’ve been here a few times before, the food is yummy, even the prices was even better! We had a couple of teapots which topped a great evening!

We had a great time at the Rockpool for our date night - my husband had a steak and I had a caesar salad. We really enjoyed our meals and the service was friendly and helpful. Overall an easy, laidback kind of place to have a quiet night out.

Central location is great. Is in a bar so there’s plenty of noise but nice atmosphere over all. The dining area where we were sitters was pretty small. Food was good. Would recommend the salt and pepper squid. Portion sizes are huge so don’t get too much for a starter and then main. They didn’t have the two menu items I wanted to try on the night I.e, Whitebait fritters or Cripsy Salmon, but the alternatives were nice. Will dine again.

Great price, food and atmosphere. Will be sure to dine again.

- dined at The Rockpool on

We were a little apprehensive as we knew the rock pool in our younger days as a place to get liquored and play pool and get rowdy, but.... Its a lot different now, while people were drinking and playing pool it was quite low key and a nice pub atmosphere, the area for dining was cool as you could see the whole bar and pool table area. The meals were really good in particular the mushroom sauce on the steak was sooo good, the girl serving us was busy but still managed to attend to the diners, I would recommend this place for a "fun" dining experience.

Great meal. Nice and hot and plenty of it. Our waitress delivered great service. Salad was tasty - best I have had at any restaurant, fresh, crunchy and lovely dressing. Great to see a lot of people enjoying themselves on the pool tables. Will be back.
