    One of the best meals - presentation, taste and content. I had pork tenderloin and my wife had sea bass and both were delicious. In terms of value for money it was excellent. Could not recommend it higher - best meal in a restaurant for years

    Really good food. The fish dishes are excellent. Portion size was just right. When food tastes this good it’s an art. It’s not often restaurants get all three courses spot on but on this occasion it was. Great value for money too.

    I had a 3 course vegan option in Coppers. The main was crispy fermented tofu spring roll, charcoal roast vegetables served on the side of sauce split with curry oil which was beautiful. Well worth a visit, we were a party of 5 and all meals delicious!!

    This was our second experience at Copper and it was just as enjoyable as the first. The food was delicious. We both had the cod for main course and loved the variety on the plate. They also serve our favourite Sauvignon blanc wine - Jumper. The service was also excellent and very friendly. Our server went above and beyond, running down the street after us to return a forgotten mobile phone. Will definitely return.

    Early evening meal and restaurant not overcrowded. Food and menu was interesting and flavoursome. Parfait was a good starter and took the special Lobster for my main. The Lobster was tasty but overcooked. Good value for money. All told a good choice

    Went with my wife for a Thursday night meal. Staff friendly and professional and restaurant was gleaming. Received excellent service throughout and the food was faultless. The whole seabass fish of the day was particularly noteworthy for its size and being cooked to perfection. Nice attention to detail in the side dishes is all appreciated too. Excellent meal, great staff, nice atmosphere, decent wine list and surprisingly good value!

    Overall extremely disappointed. Started with us being first ones on restaurant, gave name and was then promptly told needed the table back by such and such time. I ordered breadboard to start, wheaten so tasty, rest tasted stale. Now make no mistake, my partner absolutely loved her lobster and dessert. My steak I asked medium came out raw. Had to send it back. Paid bill left. When a seal house cooks medium steak raw, and then does not even give u as much as free cup of tea. I won't be back, she prob will.

    We had a fantastic meal in copper last night.We both had scallops, excellent.Then half lobster and a cod.All food was absolutley marvelous.Then the sharing chocolate desert on the specials menu,omg. The restaurant wasn't overly busy which suited but we couldn't understand why given the quality of food we were served. Yes the bill crept up to 150 odd but it did include several drinks and kids dinners and dessert. In comparison to a well known restaurant down the street the night before the is a massive difference.Quality food in a lovely atmosphere

    Went for dinner here on Friday night, surprisingly the place was very quiet in terms of customers which was baffling as the quality of the food was fantastic. Staff were lovely and took great care of us, the restaurant itself is very clean and the atmosphere is great for a quiet meal. Would definitely go back.

    Lack of diversity on the menu, one chicken dish, one vegetarian dish. I had the steak, lobster had run out, I got the last portion of prawns at 7pm. Steak was OK as was my partners fish but feel that it wasn't a £100+ meal and experience. Staff friendly and helpful but lacked experience, small things like having the wine bottle plonked on the table with no tasting offered. Dessert, shared apple tarte tatin was gorgeous.
