The place is outside Oxford, in the village of Nuneham Courtenay. Ample car park, big restaurant/bar area/dining area. I visited when it was decorated for Christmas and there were corporate diners with (noisy) live show included. We were sat in a smaller area with 'normal' dining area (4 tables). Service was good, Starters came quickly, however we had to wait... More

What more can I say, the manager of the restaurant and the staff are always happy and welcoming when we go in. The food is on a whole different level! If you have ever been to the crazy bear just down the road in Stadhampton, it's good but very over priced. In the Cockadoo, the food is even better and... More

Although we've dined at Cockadoo on Chinese New Year we've never sampled the food and entertainment offered for New Year's Eve. We were offered tickets to dine there as a Christmas present so, being fairly regular customers, we jumped at the chance of a free meal on this special night. When we arrived, at 8PM, the bar and restaurant were... More

Looks nothing on the outside but step inside and it is a delight. Staff attentive. Tributes nights are well managed though not cheap worth the event. Food - not large quantities of sharing platters/bowls but incredibly tasty and was enough with suitable gaps between courses. Only disappointment was desert which tasted cheap and nasty.

We were all very impressed by the menu. My vegetarian pork tasted amazing. It was the best meat alternative I have ever had. There are lots of vegetarian meat substitutes on the menu which is unlike other places. My table of 7 didn't have a single complaint about any of the food or drinks. The staff were very welcoming even... More

First time to this location with a group of friends for a tribute evening. The act was brilliant but it was matched by everything else. Staff were friendly and really keen to cater for dietary needs of group. Great value. Highly recommended.

I enjoyed my visit as it was great to see such a variety of dishes, meats and side orders on the menu. The food tasted good but the lighting was such that my wife couldn't actually see her food and it wasn't piping hot - did taste good though!

We have visited the Cockadoo with family several times now and apart from one time I had to send a dish back as it was cold, have always enjoyed the dining experience and ambience. With Christmas and New Year approaching, we decided to look around for somewhere to party and came across Cockadoo online which on THEIR website was advertising... More
