"After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even ones own relatives"
- Oscar Wilde
June's menu is now in full swing, and for those of you who follow us on social media, you will have seen some of the incredible dishes our chefs have produced for this month's menu.
After 3+ years of trading (ignoring that bit in the middle when COVID took over) we have come to believe that our 5-course monthly changing seasonal taster menu is the truly the jewel in our crown. In fact, we love our taste menu, and you, our guests, so much that from 2nd July Saturday nights will be come taster menu only nights. No more decision making for anyone! Go for the paired wines and our cocktail of the month too and all you need to do is, eat, drink and enjoy. We take care of the rest.
If you're pescatarian or vegetarian, we've got you covered. We always have options for those of you who don't eat meat. Allergens are also covered. Gluten free? Dairy free? Nut free? Yep, we can cater for all of those dietary requirements too! (Though if you have any very specific or unusual allergies, do let us know as far in advance as possible to ensure that we can feed you!)
If you have already made a booking for July, you should have heard from someone in the team already to discuss this, but if you're anything like us, you'll be as excited as we are with this slight change to programming.
If you don't subscribe to our newsletter or didn't read the last blog post (shame on you!), you wouldn't be privy to the knowledge that we have re-introduced our pre-theatre menu, which means from 5pm-6:30pm Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, you can get 3 delicious courses of food for a mere £35, or just 2 for £28. A great way to get in your Copper & Ink fix when you're shorter on time or on a budget. It's also a really good way of filling in the gaps you've missed after coming in for the taster menu!
The chefs are already working on the menu for July, so keep your eyes on our social media accounts, and subscribe to our mailing list for more news!
See you in the dining room!

It’s been a while since we posted and for that we apologise.
However, as always, the chefs have been working hard to create mouthwatering dishes for you and our May menu is no different. Featuring prawns, white asparagus, fresh peas, rhubarb, hibiscus and beef short rib (not all on the same plate), we think this month’s menu really packs a punch.
We are also acutely aware of the current rise in costs, so we wanted to our bit to enable you to continue to eat out with friends and family whilst still watching the pennies.
Therefore, we have re-introduced our Pre-Theatre /Early Bird menu. This gives you the option to have 2- or 3-courses for £28 or £35 respectively from 5pm to 6:30pm Wednesday, Thursday & Friday.
Take a look at the menu below:
Charred white asparagus, ponzu dressing, morels, black garlic mayo, coconut velouté, pistachio
Prawns, farfalle, prawn bisque, fresh peas, basil oil
Smoked pork belly, Jersey royals, caramelised onions, fennel salad, miso glaze
Harissa hasselback courgette, labneh, charred lettuce, courgette salad, dukka
Salmon fillet, smoked haddock, cheddar mash, peas, herb crumb, fish jus
Middle Eastern spiced chicken leg, butter bean purée, sweet & sour red onions, salsa verde
Celeriac parfait, coffee caramel, chocolate sauce, hazelnut crumb
Rhubarb, rose & hibiscus baked Alaska
Cheese board - 14
We have also introduced a cocktail of the month, which this month is inspired by Ernest Hemingway and his love of daiquiris. Infused with lime, rum and hibiscus, the Ernest is not one to miss out on.
And for those of you who don’t drink, The Lovecraft (named for fantasy writer H.P Lovecraft - a devout teetotaller) is full of all the same flavours but without the alcohol.
There is just one week left of this menu, so we urge you to book in and try this menu before it's too late!
All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.
Whilst we are aware that not everyone celebrates Valentine’s Day in its traditional guise; after the last few years we’ve all had, a little bit of love is something we think should be celebrated. And for us, that’s a love and celebration of good food, good wine and excellent company.
As V-Day falls on a Monday - a day which we do not open - we have decided that our Valentine’s Day will be Saturday 12th February.
We’ve put together a stunning taster menu for the occasion, and wanted to share a little sneaky peek of that here.
This is the first time we have introduced a premium wine pairing alongside the standard wine parings which will be a fantastic opportunity for you to try some brand new wines which will only be available for this menu!
As always, we will be able to cater for pescatarians and vegetarians and any other allergies or dietary requirements (please let us know in your booking should there be something specific).
To make the evening extra special for you all, we wanted to take the pressure off so you don’t even have to choose from the menu (we will only be offering the 5-course taster menu), and we will be giving you longer on the table to ensure you can enjoy the additional treat of oysters at the start and, should you have room, a cheese board!
*you will need to select this promotion at time of booking to complete the reservation.
We hope you are as excited as we are by this, and we look forward to celebrating with all of you.

If you want to treat your mum to something a bit more special, then we have the gift for you...
We are excited to be welcoming the Siobhan Parr Trio to Copper & Ink for our monthly Jazz Night on 22nd March. Tickets are £50 per person and include a 4-course meal and 1/2 bottle of wine. Not a bad way of showing mum how loved she is!
