The Rocking Chair Bar, or ‘Rocker’ to the locals, is one of Derry’s most famous pubs in Derry. Located in the shadow of the famous Derry Walls and overlooking the Bogside, we have the atmosphere of a local with the energy of a pub in the heart of the city centre. The Rocking Chair Bar serves top quality food and the best pint of Guinness in Derry. Our staff know how to make a visitor welcome. Come in and see us, we’re the friendliest Bar in town.

Dan is awesome - partner wanted to watch the match but we were having a family day. Dan secured a seating area for us... whilst we ate upstairs (food is amazeballs) and we were able to come downstairs to happy partner and kids (all grown) If you want the personal touch and the staff to go out of their way for you then attend here. Thank you for an amazing day darlings - we shall be back again with our custom. Staff need a raise by the way!!!!!!!!read more
