Went here following the good reviews. What a disappointment, ok the staff were run off their feet and did their best and were very pleasant, but the food was not good. The vegetables were tasteless and obviously they had been sitting in water for a long time. Roast potatoes were like mini rocks, dried out and over cooked. Had to... More

I had a lovely meal at this restaurant yesterday and was part of a large 23 person party including young children and babies. The food was absolutely delish and the staff who were caught a bit off guard due to our not exact booked numbers combined with unexpected walk-ins were very friendly and accommodating considering the rather stressful circumstances they...

Oh my goodness, what a lovely restaurant and meal. After a beautiful sunny day on the coast, swimming in Annestown, I stopped in without a reservation for an early supper. My server Rachel, who grew up in the area, was delightful -- happy to reply to my questions about things to do and see. And the food…..from the tomato and... More

We have enjoyed dining at the Copper Hen for occasions over the past few years, but our meal on Friday last was just beyond compare. 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

On a day trip today we had given up finding somewhere to eat on the Copper Coast when 3 hungry children and their parents came across The Copper Hen and we were very pleasantly surprised. 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
