Q: I’d like the taster menu, how long will it take? 

A: We advise leaving 2 to 2.5 hours for the taster menu.  

Q: There’s more than 10 of us.  Can we book a table?

Q: Is there a dress code? 

A: No.  We want you to feel comfortable, however, if you want to make more of an effort by wearing your Sunday best, you definitely won’t feel out of place. 

Q: Will Tony, Becky & Rob be working? 

A: Yes!  All three are full time at the restaurant; however, we can’t guarantee you will get to see them on your visit.  If you do see them, please do ensure to say hi as they are all happy to have a chat.

A: Yes.  However, we do offer a cake service at £10 per head 

Q: What time is the last sitting for dinner? 

A: The last sitting is 9:30pm.  However, if you are planning to have the taster menu we would suggest you sit at 9:00pm. 

Q: Everyone in my party wants the taster menu; can I have the a la carte? 

A: Sadly not.  We want our guests to enjoy their food together and wouldn’t want one guest to be sat waiting whilst the others are still eating.  We ask that everyone in your party either has the taster or a la carte menu. 

Q: I’m not hungry; can I have a drink at the bar? 

A: Yes, absolutely. We have a great selection of wines, gins, beers and non-alcoholic drinks available.

Q: Why is the restaurant called Copper & Ink?

A: We love that the name has a bit of mystery surrounding it and that it has so many connotations; copper cooking pots, squid ink, etc., but it’s down to the fact that Becky has copper hair and is covered in tattoos! We like to say that it’s really the story of love, tattoos and cooking pots!

Q: How do I book the Chef’s Table?

A: You will need to get in touch with us directly by emailing info@copperandink.com. The Chef’s Table is for parties of 8-10 only and will need to be secured with a non-refundable deposit.
