11The Rockstone

Best described in their own words, The Rockstone’s food is comprised of a ‘pun-fuelled food menu and features our famous and creative burgers, mighty grills and Asian street food.’ The large burgers are the main attraction at The Rockstone, but they also offer an array of mixed grills and varied ‘streetfood’. The Rockstone also offers an exciting range of vegan burgers that, like the meat meals, definitely don’t skimp on the size.

First of all I’d like to say that I don’t normally write reviews but I was so impressed by every aspect of this place that I felt the need to share. Can’t recommend this place enough, we are very much looking forward to our next visit.



Italian restaurant Enoteca’s menu oozes class. From the outside, the restaurant perhaps doesn’t look as fancy as others on the list, but their quality and presentation in food is second to none. Not your typical italian, Enoteca ‘are an Italian restaurant with a difference – we don’t do the heaping bowls of pasta or the usual pizzas. We offer incredible Salumi e Formaggi (cured meats and cheese) imported form Italy served with informal simplicity. No pretensions to anything other than a warm welcome, great food to share with friends and family.’ The restaurant recently incorporated an all-you-can-eat menu on Tuesdays.

First visit last night based on the 5*reviews. Great little restaurant. Understated surroundings don’t prepare you for the exceptional food quality. Delicious, beautifully presented. Warm welcome, attentive and friendly service.
