Rocket & Rye

Located on Cowbridge High Street, Rocket & Rye is the perfect place to relax, to escape for a while, to take some time for yourself and enjoy a drink or a bite to eat.

During the day, the light streams in through our large street-facing windows and conservatory: as evening arrives, you’ll dine under a canopy of lights.

Rocket & Rye is open 4 days a week offering lunch & dinner from Thursday to Saturday, and Sunday lunch.  A true neighbourhood restaurant, we look to create a welcoming & thoughtful dining experience.

Our menus at Rocket & Rye change frequently, showcasing the best in seasonal, local produce. This is achieved by nurturing sustainable and mutually beneficial relationships with the local community and its producers.

You’ll find fresh, simple plates, where flavour is everything. Quality ingredients, which speak for themselves, and honest cooking; it’s at the heart of what we do.

On a Sunday, you can enjoy mixing plates to share, or as starters with our beautiful roast dinner.
