We went with our two boys for dinner. The staff were kind and attentive. There were board games to keep the kids occupied. Food was tasty especially the sticky date pudding.

We visited Cuckoo tonight and were pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is rustic to say the least but in a nice way. We ordered the lamb Tagine with olives, couscous and duck fat roasted potato and a 'Weka' pizza. Both were delicious and very reasonably priced....More
