The Food

The Pizza ovens are fired up and ready to go. On the menu is a mashup of sweet and savoury stone baked pizzas that can cater for toppings of the more unusual kind. And what’s more… yeah it gets better… is with every drink before 9pm each one is free!

Some of the pizza combos that caught our eye include:

  • Love or Hate? It’s actually topped with Marmite, cheese and pickle.
  • Grande Fuoco, a classico roast tomato, pepperoni and spiced cheese.
  • Vegalot, comes with a slew of peppers, tomato, spiralizer veg and a finish topping of halloumi.

The Drink


They have a long menu of age old classics and original concoctions. Fittingly the NEON colours translate into a Matrix of mysterious cocktails:  the green one; blue one; orange one; pink one; blue one; purple one.


A crafty side show of beer includes the usual suspects like Brooklyn; Beavertown’s Black Betty; Siren’s Liquid Mistress; and Lervig’s Lucky Jack.

And if you’re mind isn’t already blown then you need to order the 5 litre-tall giraffes of beer that essentially keep you and your friends pouring at pleasure without having to get up to go back to the bar.

The Place

Drink in hand, amongst a sea of NEON signs and hand painted murals you’re discovering the quirky themes that pop up in the most unexpected places. Like the fairground room (come event space) upstairs. Or the secret (Gin!) garden that’s sprouting up on top of the roof. And it’s also the first Call Lane establishment to create a sheltered and heated street-side seating outside the front door.

Like a Narnia doorway – the actual entrance to the toilets –  there’s endless places to explore and interact with in Cuckoo. You can jump in the photo booth; have a few rounds of beer pong; or steady your hand at a game of giant Jenga. This cocktail bar stands out because it’s a playful take on a party from opening to closing!
