Description: We are located in North Berwick, in the original 'Rocket House' in Victoria Road, near the harbour. In past times, the Rocketeers fired lines to boats in distress. Previously open air, we completed the building in June 2018 to convert the restaurant into a fully enclosed space. We now serve food from our seasonal menu using local products all year round. This is where great food meets the elements ! We also serve our menu on a 'to go' basis.

If you are ever stuck for somewhere to eat in North Berwick through the summer months then do not hesitate to try The Rocketeer.

A lovely old building surrounded by a stone wall looking out onto the harbor is a perfect place to try what I would say is the best fish and chips in North Berwick bar none. You can also sample local lobster amongst other things.

Be quick as it will get busy fast!

Such a quaint little place serving really delicious freshly cooked food. Only outside seating with spectacular views and extremely busy if the weather is good with no booking facilities; however the fish 'n chips were to die for, restaurant quality, and reasonably priced. Head down there if the sun is shining you will not regret it!

We had a delicious meal here. Great service - my teenage daughters thought the waiter was "hot" and my octogenarian mother said he was a "very nice young man". Food was fantastic and it was great value. The batter was not soggy at all, but crispy and golden. And thanks for laying on the most beautiful sunset we have ever seen. It was a bit chilly so the blankets were very welcome though they could have done with a little wash!

We'd visited the Rocketeer before, and had a great meal, so again visiting North Berwick we had lunch at the Rocketeer

Great location by the Sealife centre with far reaching views over to the Bass Rock

This time the service was a bit disorganised, and when we revived our meal the batter on the fish was a bit soggy, great chips though, overall a bit of a disappointment

We had to ask a few times to get the bill

Great location, just not a great experience this visit, but still got the best views in town, will give them another go next time

Rocketeers is a lovely little restaurant.. no place to sit inside only out side seating which is great if the weather is good. Not so great otherwise which is what we experienced.. it was cold and windy but the outlook to the sea was really stunning
. We braved the weather as we had read reviews that the food was really good. Not so I'm afraid.. We ordered the fish platter for two.. It was brought to our table remarkably quick so we already knew it was probably warmed up.. We were right all our fish .. salmon gougons. battered haddock.. mussels.. and half a lobster ( actually half a mouthful ) definitely were not cooked fresh.. It was not fantastic at all and at £40 for the two of us with wine I have to say it was pretty poor. I particularly was disappointed as I am a great lover of lobster and was looking forward to the treat .. We unfortunately won't be returning and I am sad about that as the location is fabulous .
