Pizza was good but the rest was only mediocre. Brussel sprouts were tough as nails. It was also incredibly loud and even the wait staff couldn't hear... More

Went with the better half for dinner to the copper Hen, this is not our first time and as always it was super. Starter, Main and dessert were just magic. It is the best value for money. I really recommend this restaurant to all.

Group of 8 diners. Restaurant warm. Service good. Fairly good choice on menu yet still nothing to really wet personal appetite. Meal was fine-average. Poor car parking.

Hi Andrea, thanks for taken the time to review your visit, personally I think it's a little unfair, giving that you never mentioned what you ate while dining with us, and to say nothing wet your "personal appetite" which is the unfair piece, I like to think our menu is always seasonal, offering a wide range of dishes, from Hereford...
