Visited rock N sole while visiting friends in Southsea. Was such a busy day, but food was very quick as they were well prepared. Food was absolutely delicious, kids meals were very generous sizes. Can't wait to go back!

Stopped for a quick chip stop on our way along the promenade. Got large chips for kids to share for £2.90, plenty of them but kids said some of them were so crunchy you couldn't get a fork in them. It's a busy place and...More
