About the Pub

The pub closed in Feb 2022 and reopned in June 2022 as The Tamil Prince. "Former Roti King executive chef Prince Durairaj and operations director Glen Leeson, who last year launched south Indian street food concept Tamila in Hackney, have launched their joint pub venture. The duo have reopened The Cuckoo, a 19th century pub in Islington’s Hemingford Road, as The Tamil Prince, again offering south Indian cuisine. " Drinkers only are welcome.

The menu is a mixture of small and large plates, alongside a selection of desserts and beer, wine, spirits and cocktails. See

Previously - after a few years as an Indian restaurant the Cuckoo came back as a pub, in March 2016. What turns around, comes around.
