Welcome to the Rocket

A traditional family-friendly pub

Soak up our friendly service and homely charm in the Merseyside village of Rainhill. Our early 19th Century pub is named after the famous ‘Stephenson’s Rocket’ which won the Rainhill steam trials in 1829! The place to be for a refreshing drink, the biggest fixtures in sport and a game of pool or darts. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Watch this space for our new menu coming soon.


Our bar is fully stocked with the best selection of your favourite drinks! From world lagers to spirits, wines to cocktails and every tipple in-between.

Join us for a fleeting cocktail with a friend, a quiet pint at the bar, or celebrate the big occasion and start your weekend with high spirits. No matter what you fancy, we’ll have something to tickle your tastebuds every time.
