I would say the food was nice, I would not say great or brilliant. My partner on the other hand has not stopped raving about her sweet and sour chicken balls. The decor was a bit of a mish mash and not really sure what it was aiming at. The Staff where polite however they seemed very under staffed and... More

I had a lovely meal with the Mrs here last night. :) Food was really nice and the staff attentive if a little run off their feet at time. :) We had the set menu with a starter / crispy duck / and mains and 4 drinks for £68-00 for the pair of us which seemed reasonable when you consider... More

Been to the restaurant before and it's been OK, unfortunately where we live we have no other choices. Never again, my last visit was a joke, staff so rude food served freezing cold, small portions and completely tasteless. It's no wonder they put on there pathetic singing acts once a month to drum up business, even that's not working as... More

I stopped to have some lunch, the restaurant was very quiet with just 4 other diners. I asked the waitress at the bar how long the food would take roughly and she said around ten minutes if its not anything complicated. I ordered a salad and waited and waited and waited, no one came to me to explain why it... More

We went to a Best of Buble evening and were amazed by the professionalism of the entertainer together with the fantastic food. It would be worth what we paid just for the close up performance in beautiful surroundings but to get such a variation of textures and flavours of the delicatly presented food was an extra bonus. We thought that... More

I've always heard great feedback from friends about Cockadoo so decided to try for myself last week, and I wasn't disapointed! We were given a choice of where to sit as it was quite quiet which was nice, the restaurant is very well presented and has a good atmosphere. We chose a few different starters including the Vegetable spring rolls... More

We have been here a couple of times recently and, of its type, this restaurant is one of the best. Unfortunately for them its a bit out of the way in Nuneham Courtenay, however its really easy to get to and there's loads of parking. The food is in my view above average largely standard Thai fare. Starters were good,... More
