Friendly staff and a nice clean place to eat with a reasonable choice of menu, and a countryish pub atmosphere with log fires in winter, I cannot choose my favourite menu options as there are many for me that I love, though I haven't tried the fish dishes yet

Situated in the village which used to be home to Rolls Royce, The Cuckoo, near Peterborough, continues this tradition of old world charm and quality. It boasts a traditional British pub menu, a rustic stone appearance, a welcoming hearth-fire and a pretty al fresco beer garden.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Cuckoo menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Cuckoo ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

Though located in Alwalton, Peterborough Train Station is only a 15-minute drive from The Cuckoo.

    one third if the menu was not available. This included all the dudhes we requested. My wife had her 4th choice. The triple cioked chops wre particularly bad but the desserts were disappointing. Mass profuced elseehere and shipped in. The Eton Melba had nothing in it apart from sugar snd cream. Staff tried but let down by management.
    When i paid U asked the server if staff received all thr tip; dhe replied no just 25% ifcharged yo a card but 100% of cash. So ALWAYS give cash.

    We use the Cuckoo as a half way house meeting place, for two families exchanging their mother, one from Yorkshire the other from Kent. Easy to locate just of the A1. Very pleasant surround and clean and very friendly pub. Everyone was having the roast beef Sunday lunch, Which unfortunately for us had been taken of the menu as the chef did not think it was up to his standard. Very commendable. Pork was our replacement as i am sure it was for everyone else as the meat portion was rather sparse. Otherwise well served and presented. The deserts and puddings were all very well received with a varied choice that i am sure will please the fussiest of palates.

    Very pleased with our waitress. Food was not as good as previously visited. Onion rings were not coated in batter properly. Wrong pizza was made so waitress explained there would be a wait but the party of 6. 5 of us had meals except the pizza. Waitress was so embarrassed. Usually a great place to go been dozens of times in the past. It is my favourite restaurant and we were celebrating my daughters birthday as well.

    The Cuckoo is an extremely lovely restaurant and pub which I visit regularly. One of my favourite dishes is the prawn & lobster cocktail for starter, but for a lot of the dishes on a Monday and Tuesday things have ran out from service over the weekend and delivery of new stock does not arrive until the Wednesday. This can sometimes be a bit disappointing. I also love the Pecan Pie for dessert, but this is only available as part of the light pudding option with a coffee. It cannot apparently be offered as a main dessert and as a larger slice. Overall though it is always a really enjoyable experience going to the cuckoo and the staff are always extremely obliging and friendly.
