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.
