Went with a large group, has to wait ages before the food came, Whilst the food was good the service was a let down, food came at different times and two of the orders were wrong, so had to wait again till the correct order arrived.

We frequently go to the Cockadoo for family meals. The food, especially the Cockadoo set menu, is very good. Waiters and waitresses are friendly, helpful and speedy. It doesn't look hugely inviting from the outside and is on a very busy main road, but inside it is very inviting and comfortable and table settings are always beautiful

Ate here twice in a week with colleagues. Lovely staff, nothing is too much trouble. The food is simply awesome, a varied menu, Chinese, Thai, Mongolian etc all beautifully cooked and presented. Add to that a really easy to find location and ample car parking what more could you wish for?

Always nice to be able to have Sunday dinner instead of Sunday lunch. We have been here often and staff is always friendly and welcoming. This Sunday we got the impression there was a different chef. Portions were larger but taste wise it didn't hit the mark as usual. It wasn't bad it just wasn't as good as normal so... More

This Pub in Nuneham is quite hairaising to approach if cycling due to one of those 50mph whizzing main roads with no pathway just a steep verge. The outside of the Pub was so dilapadated that it looked abandoned. There were no menus displayed anywhere outside I could find. A large tree dangerously split in 2 remained in a field... More

Thank you for taking the time to put forward your views. I hope that you would have actually found that the entire village of Nuneham Courtenay is 30 mph with a speed camera in the village itself so we rarely experience speeding through the village and passed the restaurant. Unfortunately we cannot do anything about the pathways in the village,... More

Labelled as Chinese but really Thai food. Set in an old pub it's a restaurant with character and the food was very good. Service was fine too

Four of us were on a weekend break in Oxford and just happened to be looking for somewhere to have dinner. We stumbled across this awesome restaurant by accident. We were greeted warmly and shown to a table. The place inside looks absolutely beautiful. The food came quickly and I can honestly say it is one of the nicest meals... More

We were greeted by a very apologetic waitress who explained that their boiler had broken down so it was very cold. They put our party of six into a smaller room with an electric heater and although it was decidedly chilly to start with the quality of the food and service absolutely made up for it. Between us we had... More

Eaten lunch here a few times over last 5 or more years, as I once worked nearby and even now it's worth a slight detour when in the area. It's a strange one to review as food is always excellent and a big step above most Chinese restaurants, but service has always been so very slow to get the first... More

Amazing food!! Not sure anyone would be disappointed here Only slight issue was waiting 10/15 minutes to be acknowledged when entering. When eventually welcomed the waitress was friendly and very polite Will be coming back!! Try the spring rolls and prawn toast you won't regret it
