This place has an airs and graces attitude - thinks it's in some bohemian quarter of Greenwich village as opposed to the arse end of Acton. Think I preferred it when the ale wasn't much cop and it was fullof post office van drivers.

The food is top notch with a good selection of vegetarian and meat dishes. Unfortunately though the service is poor and the bar staff very rude. If you just want to have a meal then this is a good place to go in Acton - but if you are after a drink at the bar, then I'd choose another pub.

Currently visiting a pub for every station on the London Overground. Did this for Acton Central. Found it a bit too poncy and pretentious to be honest. Did have decent screen for watching sports though. Not great beer selection.

Great atmosphere. Olly is the perfect barman. actually volunteered last week to go out in the rain and get us a cab. Best pub in Acton. We try to go to other pubs...and always regret it. Other pubs to not compare well to The Rocket for the all-round experience.

This is my local and it's pretty good. In general I go to pubs for a pint rather than for food: the Rocket succeeds with both . Rarely have I had a bad pint and when that's happened, it's been changed without fuss. Beer choice is better than average pubco-standard, with Pride, Landlord and Harveys the offerings. Would be nice to see another guest ale from time to time, but maybe Acton punters aren't that fussed.

The jewel in the Rocket's crown is the food. Under previous ownership it was good but a bit pricey. But now the food is still really good and the prices have been cut. It must be one of the best value eateries in the south of England. The service is excellent: really friendly, efficient and definitely scores 10 out of 10.

If there's a down-side to this pub, it's the audio system in the main bar. The speakers are tiny and tinny, the sort you could buy for a tenner a pair. After a while this grates, which is a shame because the variety of music played is varied and interesting.
