Great coffee with good, frindly service, very reasonable price.

A great place to go for morning coffee or afternoon tea. Views over the sea and to the pier. The coffee is great and very reasonable. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Haven't had a meal there.

Rocket House cafe is located right on the beach and is obviously very popular with the locals. The trick is to find a table first and then order your drinks and food at the counter. The young serving staff then brings your order to the table. Whilst the coffees were warming on a cold and windy morning, the cappuccino was... More

Just ordinary. Coffee and walnut cake was plentiful but slightly dry. The pot of tea took an age to arrive but was actually very pleasant. Price was not dear or cheap, just ordinary. I wonder what it would be like in the season?

The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed, coffee superb and the staff very attentive. The menu looked really interesting but as I only had a cheese scone (which was delicious) I couldn't comment too much... More

I may have had a simple... More

Old age has weakened my eyesight but I'm pretty sure there was no sign saying 'No Waitress Service, order at checkout' , a sign that would have saved us twiddling our thumbs whilst waiters rushed past. Ok, not a major point but surely the Wait staff get sick of being asked 20 times a shift...? The service area being dirty... More

My tea spoon had some kind of encrusted food stuck to it which I didn't notice until after I had stirred my drink. Yuck! I ordered a toasted tea cake which when it came was wholemeal and very dry. The automatic door to the Lift wasn't working (and wasnt last time I went 3 months ago either so I presume... More

Excellent sea view Our food was tasty, good, freshly prepared and reasonably priced. Service and welcome was good venue was obviously popular with locals as quite busy for a weekday in February, In the summer there would be more seating avalable as there is also outdoor terrace seating
