We were really pleased when this place was refurbished, (looks lovely) we have been several times now. The menu is not cheap but neither expensive. The menu is changed on a regular basis which I like. Good food, clean, welcoming and nice atmosphere oh and fizz by the glass. Well done, what more could you ask for .

The experience didn't start off very well, as I was meeting friends and had to go in alone, which would have been alright if it wasn't for 5 or 6 loud presumably locals either side of the walkway, they stopped talking when I approached and then watched me walking in, a few minutes later another friend came to join us...

Happened to find this place on our way down to Southampton (thanks to a road sign) while hunting for lunch. The service was fantastic, they really did everything they could to serve our needs. The food was genuine and terrific. Their menu is in the higher price range but I definitely found the food and service worth every single penny.... More

We booked from the website. The refurb has really done the place proud and I think people should give the owners a chance to settle. The waitrons we had couldn't have been more helpful. We were early for our table they sat us in the bar where we browsed the menus, when all the guests arrived we were sat by... More

We planned to visit the pub with friends and checked on your advice.We found it completely wrong. Food was well presented and hot My egg fried at the last minute. Our waitress was very efficient and full of enthusiasm. Not huge potions but who wants that. Our little dog was welcome too. Did not find the meals over priced.

We visited the Rockingham Arms last Saturday for a family lunch. Hadn't been there for years but heard it was under new management. The place had had a complete overhaul and looked very nice. The food was fine, nothing exceptional but fine. We did feel the meals for overpriced and decided not to have a dessert there at we felt... More

Decided to visit the revamped Rockingham Arms on a sunny Sunday lunchtime and really should have guessed , from the almost empty car park, that it is failing to attract customers and something is amiss. Yes the interior is new and pristine, but if all was well, it should be packed with people ( sunday lunchtime!!) – as it was... More

I have now revisted the Rockingham Arms a number of times since it's long closure. Very impressed! Excellent new interior design giving a real atmosphere of a village local. Smart dining area, but also a long bar where you can just turn up and enjoy a drink and a snack. Interesting food menu with a good mix of mains, snacks... More

The Rockingham Arms reopened under The Upham Group less than 6 weeks ago and at long last West Wellow can finally say we have a pub with a touch of class and with a family orientated management team who know how to deliver that and in style! Having visited more times now than I can possibly even remember (its a... More

Went with friends to see how new pub was doing. Beautifully decorated, friendly waitresses but food lacked imagination. A whole chicken dish is actually a poussin but described incorrectly on menu and was all bones & very little meat. Disappointing sorry.
