The atmosphere is warm & welcoming, the staff are friendly & helpful and the food quality is out of this world. And all of this at very reasonable prices. Well worth the visit. Would have... More

We really enjoyed our meal in the Copper Hen today. I was treated to lunch being my birthday and it certainly was a treat. From starters to desert the food was of such a high standard I couldn't be happier. All the plates were practically licked clean. We had a 10 month old in tow and the staff were very... More

Food was excellent, great value, lovely decor and atmosphere. Waitresses very welcoming, pleasant and service very good. Super playground around the corner and many beaches... More

Well done lovely decorated restaurant, great to see a restaurant sourcing so many of its ingredients locally, the taste and combination of flavours shows the chef is on top of his game. I had the cod dish with spring onion polenta, beautifully cooked, the vegetables were different beets with courgettes I would return for them alone.
