Best salads and steaks ever! Never disappointed if we go there. Very well priced for the quality of food! Make sure that you book as they can get quite busy.

recommended by Rivonia B&B , we wanted an eatery with good food where we didn't have to book. Rocket was a perfect solution. ....friendly staff, good food, lovely setting. I thoroughly enjoyed the sticky pork ribs.....too much for 1 person and great for sharing.
