The Cuckoo's Nest, 69 Home Street, EH3 9JP, Edinburgh

We visited the Cuckoo's Nest on a sunny Wednesday afternoon. Having booked a table we arrived a wee bit early and found the shutters still down. After a wee walk with our greyhound we returned to find it open. Not sure if it usually opens at that time as it seems to stay open quite late at night. We had the place to ourselves, leaving plenty of room for our dog to do what greyhounds do best, lie down and sleep.

The menu is mainly burgers, beef, lamb and southern fried chicken with a variety of toppings, as well as southern fried chicken wraps and a barbecue pulled pork sandwich. There are also veggie options such as vegetable lasagne and falafel burger. Whilst the Moroccan lamb burger sounded nice, we both settled for the American, which comes with double cheese and fried onions, served with chips, beer battered onion rings and salad. The burgers were tasty, quite meaty and not overcooked so they were still nice and juicy. The fried onions were delicious. Why do more places not include fried onions with their burgers?

Our voucher included cocktails. We had an elderflower mule, which was mainly ginger beer, nice and refreshing. The other cocktail was a French Martini. Like most cocktails too much juice and too little alcohol for our taste.

The Cuckoo's Nest seems more focused on drink than food. Service was okay, but not overly friendly. I remember drinking here in the early 80's, and the décor seemed pretty much as it was then. Overall it is reasonable value, and the food is nice if you like a burger. Not for a romantic meal, but fine if you fancy a burger and a drink.

Nice cheap cocktails and some varied food. My stockpot was great, my partner's burger was average. Decent prices and a very friendly crowd.
