user reviews of the Rock Arms, Romsey

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

The Rockingham Arms has been acquired by the Upham Brewery (financially backed by the mastermind of the Slug and Lettuce chain, so I'm informed). Decor is the usual style for this outfit, kind of a McDonald's concept, but isn't a patch on the White Horse in Overton. Only Upham beer on offer (I'm not a fan so I had cider). The rumour from the staff is they plan to develop a chain of 30/40 pubs and then sell out. Hurry up!!!! Lol!!!!

This Pub has been closed for quite a long time but I am pleased to announce that it will re open in late April under its former name of The Rockingham Arms. It will hopefully return to its former high standards under the new ownership.
I will keep you all posted.

Went in this pub after a drive in the countryside. Very tidy looking on the outside with a raised patio'd area at the front and a few seats round the side near the car park. Inside the decor is very smart, if not a little sterile, with most of the tables laid out for food, and lots of stools at the bar, which on a busy day can be a pain if you are trying to get served. There were only three pumps on for real ale. One had finished, with the clip turned. One was Doom Bar (meh!) and the other was Goddards Fuggle De Dum, which was a very nice pint. The owner told us they often also serve Flack Manor beers, which I know are very good. Luckily for us the place was almost deserted, and the bar staff kept tidying up and looking in our direction as though we were outstaying our welcome. So much so, that we actually enquired as to whether it was closing time. The barlady said it didn't close till 6.30 p.m. which I thought was a strange time to be closing on a Sunday. She said it was normally really busy, but they had just found out that their phone had not been working all afternoon hence nobody asking about tables. After looking at the skulking chef who was chatting away to his Polish mate (where do they all come from?!), I think he might have disconnected the phone to have an easy afternoon. Would like to come back when we are not the only people in the pub, and there is a bit more of an atmosphere! Not too bad though.

Lovely place that champions Ales from Hampshire. Usually a Bowman, fff or Andwells on as well as Flack Manor from nearby Romsey. Extensive and varied Menu which is thoroughly recommended if you've been out with your dog on Canada Common. This quiet setting belies how busy it can get and phoning ahead would be wise. The owners have had this dog friendly Free House for some time and it has been very good on all my visits. The Ale is well looked after and served properly. A gem of a pub.
