Went here as me and my boyfriend had won a competition for a free meal at a Broadgate restaurant. It did not disappoint and the food was delicious! We went on a Monday so was quite quiet but service was great and the food came quickly as well. Would definitely recommend for others to visit as it is reasonably priced... More

Group of 9, it took about half an hour from ordering our drinks to getting them, nothing special here.. some wine and lots of beers.. Thankfully the food made the wait worthwhile .. nice starters , filling mains, overall 7/10

Paying 14 quid for a small, average tasting burger and a few sweet potato fries was bad enough but the level of incompetency of the staff dealing with a complaint from one of our party was something to behold. After ordering "Butterfly King Prawns & Smoked Black Pudding Pizza" it was somewhat disappointing to see what actually turned up. Tiny... More

Some of my friends' meals were okay but I ordered the butterfly king prawn and black pudding pizza. What arrived was a pizza with tiny non-butterfly prawns on. Waiting staff then arguing about what a butterfly prawn was, insisting it was a type of prawn. Then they just said "that is how it arrives to us, the ingredients come in... More

Starters were delicious, I had seafood and salad, no problem with the length of time to get served as it was cold. For the mains, they struggled getting all dishes out of the kitchen, and rather than asking who wanted the items they were calling us by name - never come across that before , it took an age. Vegs...

I had a Christmas lunch at Rocket. The private room was very nice but the food was poor. The service was friendly and efficient.

It's a nice place and good service,but unfortunately the food did disappoint. I have never left a dessert almost untouched before.

I go to Rocket Bishopsgate pretty often and usually have a good experience. This week I had the burger and unfortunately it wasn't fully cooked. Whether my digestive system problems that followed are directly attributable is impossible to prove. However, burgers need to be cooked through (unlike a steak). Here's why - microbes that cause disease sit on the surface... More

As a bar absolutely fine but dinner absolutely no way. The beef and chip salad was laughable as was the fish and chip salad. The beef was delicious but the sauce over the chips was horrible.

Very welcoming, friendly and efficient staff. Plenty of choice on the menu. Starters were quite nice, we had thai crab cakes and mackerel salad, well-presented and a nice size for a starter. For mains we had swordfish and chef's cheese salad. These were ok, but there was rather a lot of salad leaves and too much dressing on the salad.... More

Staying in City of London

Neighbourhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
