The girls and I went for a long Thursday lunch at Rocket - THE CITY last week. I love Rocket, the staff are always really friendly and the menu is great with large portions. In the summer they have a really pleasant waitress served outside area and in the winter a very cosy indoor bar and restaurant. The tables are well spaced out to create a really comfortable dining space.
The restaurant and the bar have different menus so make sure you know what you want to eat before you decide where to sit. I would also consider booking, it isn't completely necessary but is advisable if you do not want to miss out. On this occasion we chose to sit and eat in the bar as it's slightly more relaxed and by the big windows.
Two of the girls went for the chicken Milanese, which was a massive portion served on a bed of rocket and looked absolutely delicious. Despite the size the plates were cleared therefore proving how worthwhile it really was! I had a halloumi sandwich served in ciabatta with salad and mango, which was delicious. This came with Rocket fries that were thick chips but super crispy and coated with rosemary and salt so no ketchup required!
We also had a bottle of wine and two large glasses. The total bill including service was £28 per head, which I thought was great for how full we were and how much wine we had consumed. Rocket is a really pleasant experience and they are more than happy to adhere to your pace meaning you can fit in a speedy lunch during work or take a slightly longer more leisurely break.
In the evening the bar comes to life, especially in the summer when the outdoor area can be utilised. If you are in the city and fancy a lunch or a drink in the sunshine or in a cosy, warm bar then head to Rocket!
