My partner and I visited cockadoo on a Saturday night. On arrival we had a drink in there stylish bar, before being taken to our table. The restaurant area was spacious and well presented. The staff were friendly and attentive but not overwhelming. The food was punched full of flavour and presented well. I would recommend this restaurant and if we lived locally we would be there regularly.

Excellent Food, Lovely Venue
I have passed this restaurant many times over the years when it was derelict. More recently since its total refurbishment I have still driven past as thought it was a themed pub which often has tribute nights. To my pleasant surprise it is now a very lovely Asian fusion restaurant. We booked at 17:00 today for a 19:00 table and thankfully they could squeeze us in. The restaurant is very tastefully furnished and the dining area nicely set out. There is also a nice lounge area for drinks before or after you dine. Our food was beautifully cooked and presented and the staff very pleasant and attentive. The advertised themed evenings are really good value as they include a set menu as well as entertainment. I’m looking forward to returning already Would thoroughly recommend

I'm a very picky eater and they catered to my strange diet incredibly well. Cannot fault the place whatsoever. The service was spot on and the food was incredible. They don't add a service charge which is something I appreciate so there's nothing at all to complain about! Lovely!

Fabulous Food, Friendly And Fun
It is well worth a trip to the Cockadoo, the Chinese/Asian food is wonderful and service so friendly. It is perfect for a quiet meal or big celebration, lends itself equally to both. In addition look out for the themed evenings, ‘Chinese Elvis’, ‘Frank Sinatra’ or ‘Tom Jones’. Great evenings with food, music, and dancing to round off.
