We wanted to thank everyone for all their heartfelt messages this week, it's been a real boon.
We have also appreciated all the ideas that have been pouring in from our guests and followers as to how we can continue to operate during this time.
One suggestion which has come up quite often is vouchers. Now, whilst we love the idea of gift vouchers (who doesn't!), we don't know how long this crisis will continue and if, therefore, we will ever be able to open our doors again. We can't, in good conscience, take money from our regular guests and loyal followers without knowing 100% that you are going to be able to cash that back in. To that end, we have decided that vouchers will NOT be a viable option for us at this time.
If, and when, we can reopen, we ask that you come in and support us and if you still want to buy a gift voucher, we will have those available to purchase as at that point we can guarantee those will be redeemable.
We are in the process of coming up with something food related which we will update you on when we can, so please do bear with us.
In the meantime, if you do follow us on social media, you will have seen our posts with regard to supporting other independent businesses, so if you can help them too, we would really appreciate it.
Please stay safe and take care of each other.

Firstly, we want to thank all of you for your support during this time and for the continued support in general.
As you may have seen this afternoon, the Prime Minister has advised the public to avoid non-essential travel and visits to bars, clubs and restaurants.
Given this drastic change to advice, we have take the decision to be socially responsible and to close the restaurant with immediate effect.
We are hoping this is a very temporary measure and it's not a decision we have taken lightly, but we do hope you all understand our reasoning.
We will keep in touch both through our social media channels and our newsletter and if you have any specific questions you can reach us on email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We hope to see you all very soon.
Tony & Becky
Whilst we are aware it's not quite the end of the month yet, we've had a really busy February so far and thought it would be a great time to share it with you.

We are really excited to share that we have been shortlisted for the 2020 Best of Royal Greenwich Business Awards!

If you weren't aware of Tony or Rob's amateur MasterChef past, then where have you been!?
If, like us, you are massive fans of the show, you'll already know the new series of amateurs started on Monday 24th February. Get watching, get cooking and look out for our Executive and Head Chefs on your telly boxes in the coming weeks.
Speaking of our fantastic Head Chef, Rob Parks, he has recently been speaking out about mental health in the restaurant industry. It's a subject very close to our hearts, and something which has been very prominent in the media recently.
Rob has been a champion for Vent - an amazing mental health charity - for a long time and was invited onto their 'Just Checking In' podcast to discuss this topic further. Click here to have a listen, and by all means, share it with anyone you think might need some help.
A quick apology to anyone who experienced difficulties with our website earlier this week, we had a few technical glitches which have now been remedied. Thank you to everyone who got in touch to let us now they were having issues, it meant we could get the problem sorted for more quickly.
Our February menu has been going down a storm, with many of our guests telling us that our wild rabbit dish is "the best rabbit they've ever eaten!" Praise, indeed!

For a mere £15, you can have 2 amazing courses, or, for £18 you can have 3!

Wow, just wow! When we opened Copper & Ink (6 months ago now, can you believe it?) we aimed to be the best we could be. We knew we had something special, but we also knew that taste is subjective and that you can't please everyone. With that said, with your support, we have won another OpenTable Diner's Choice Award and we could not be more proud.
We can't do this without, you, our guests, so to receive this award means so much to us.
We continue to strive to be the best we can be, and we thank you all once again for your support.
We can’t quite believe that we have been open for nearly 4 months. It’s been a roller coaster ride for all of us, but one we definitely don’t want to get off.
We are so grateful to everyone who has taken the time to come in and eat with us and who has supported us on this journey so far.
This blog will be a place where we showcase hero products, give you some behind the scenes information and introduce you to the staff. We will even give you a chance to ask your own questions which we will answer for you here.
Thanks again to everyone and here’s to the next 3 months!
