Rocket Riverside

I have wanted to go to Rocket in Putney for ages, and after spotting thier 2-4-1 pizza deal a few of us decided to take advantage. I have to say by the end of the night I felt a bit disappointed. Pizza's were ok, but fairly average and the service we received from our waitress was irksome.

She gave the impression that we were doing something wrong by wanting to take advantage of the 2-4-1 and and became increasingly unfriendly as the night proceeded. What did it for me was when she poured the water into my quite fulll wine glass, and without really an apology got a new glass and tried to refill it with the bottle that was on the table. That bottle was empty,so with as much generosity as she could muster she returned with a thimbleful of wine placed it in front of me and said "we don't serve the wine that you had by the glass so you get to taste this pinot grigio for free". Well lucky me. I couldn't drink the rest of it on principle.

I would consider going back there but it would be for the views only, and not the food. Many of the other staff there seemed quite polite and friendly and the bar staff at the back seem lovely, but if I had to be served by that waitress again I would walk out and go somewhere else.
