Several people have recommended the Copper Kettle so we went there for lunch today. The food was really lovely, just the right amount and very tasty it was too. Freshy cooked vegetables, piping hot straight from the kitchen. It took me back to restaurants of a bygone age, not in decor but in having good, honest home cooking. Flash it... More

On a day out in one of our favourite villages, we stopped for lunch in this friendly, cosy cafe. The food and coffee were delicious, but all the staff were welcoming and made us feel glad we'd chosen to eat there. Thankyou. Highly recommend to everyone who enjoys being made to feel as though your custom matters......that's what the Copper... More

Used trip advisor to find a lunch venue. So pleased we did. Absolutely faultless. Very friendly staff and local people too. Saw lots of fresh food being served. Main courses substantial. Desserts and cakes all fresh. A little gem. Going back in July with a few girlfriends.

I have been to a lot of teashops and cafes in my time, and this is by far the friendliest I have come across. Warm and inviting, and it has the prettiest garden for the summer months. I have seen this teashop in winter and summer alike, and no matter how busy it gets the staff are always chatty and... More

The Owners and Staff put themselves out to give a wonderful service and superb food. Breakfast is worth travelling there for and the Cream Tea is so good.... it is rare nowadays to get warm freshly cooked scones and proper servings of jam and cream - very generous helpings of all food served and excellent value for money. No cheapskates... More
