Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Rocket Café is popular with families, local office workers and regulars alike and it is easy to see why. With wooden tables and school chairs, this busy yet relaxed café has plenty to offer. A selection of menus on the chalk board offer plenty of vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free choices, with selection of breakfast options served until 12.30pm. Lunch include freshly prepared sandwiches and salads, like a generous and bright goat’s cheese with roasted red pepper salad, while leek, broccoli and stilton soup is equally successful. Their selection of baked goods sell fast and it’s easy to see why; choosing between raspberry chocolate brownie or a cream egg one isn’t easy.
