“Overated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2011

Went here with small group as quaint for grown up kinda place.Nice choice on menu. Ordered boned rolled duck, but on arrival was half a very crispy duck on bone??? Veg portion was 3 broc, 3 caul florets and mashed carrot between 4 persons, I could have eaten it alone or portion for 2 at most. Felt had to request another portion of veg, abit tight of them considering price approx £18 just for main meal. All our desserts were small but lovely, nicely presented too. A pleasant place to dine if you want to chat with your friends. Didnt bother to complain about duck, tipped and left a little disappointed, so personally wont be going back.

“Exceptional food overall very happy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2011

I checked tripadvisor before we booked a table at the copper horse and was unsure what to expect.We arrived 20 minutes before we were to be seated and had drinks in the bar and were given the menus to browse.Once ready a very pleasent friendly waitress took our order ,we were taken to the table and the food was served very quickly, the food was exceptional (Black pudding on grilled crouton/ and prawn cocktail) (lamb fillet and belly pork) overall we were very happy with the meal and there were no signs of the bad service like on the other reviews.

“Poor Service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2010 via mobile

I have never been served by such sad looking people. They really did look as if we were getting in the way of their wake. I felt like asking who had died. However, the food was good and hot. Sadly it was spoiled by the service.

“Great Evening Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2010

Great atmosphere, original decor (very showbiz orientated). Turned up without booking on a Sunday evening, seated V quickly, food was excellent, service great and the feel of the place was very country pub with a twist. Highly Recommended

“Lousy service, inattentive staff, mediochre food, spend your hard earned cash elsewhere”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2010

We gave our order and were asked if we wanted to go to the table which we did, asking for the wine list at the same time. No staff came to bring water or take our wine order, we waited until the starter came then asked the waiter if we could order drinks.... we waited until he came to take our empty plates away to again ask for water and wine (sounds like something from the bible!!) we finally got our water and wine just before the main course was served. The main course was undercooked (I had asked for the food to be well cooked), and my husbands scampi was soggy. When the waitress came to take away the plates she asked if all was ok - of course I said no, she went to get Simon..... who offered more drinks which we did not want. We got the bill and were charged for everything, a complete waste of £61.
