Q: Are children allowed? A: Yes. We offer a Children's Menu, but for the more adventurous child they can try any of the items on the a la carte menu in a taster size portion for a child-sized price.
Q: Are dogs allowed? A: Yes! We are dog friendly during lunch service on the ground floor. Please let us know ahead of time if you will be bringing your dog so we can ensure you're seated appropriately.
Q: I have an allergy, is there anything for me to eat? A: Absolutely! We cater for all dietary requirements including vegetarian, vegan, gluten- and dairy-free. If possible, please inform us in advance of any dietary requirements so we can ensure you are well fed.
Q: Can I bring my own wine? A: No. We have worked hard to put together a great selection of wines. We feel we have enough choice to suit all tastes and price brackets.
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? A: Under normal circumstances, yes, however at this time we will not be accepting bookings of more than 6 people. Please see our terms and conditions for more information.
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.
Q: It’s a birthday celebration, can we bring a cake? A: Yes. However, we do offer a cake service at £10 per head. Should this be of interest, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org at least one week before your booking so we can discuss this with you.
Q: What time is the last sitting for dinner? A: At the present time due to Covid measures implemented by the Government, the last sitting is 9pm and all guests are required to vacate the premises by 11pm.
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: At the moment, our bar is not open for drinks only due to social distancing measures.
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 (although Tony is rapidly catching her up in that department)! 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: The Chef's Table is currently unavailable due to social distancing measures.
Q: Can I Walk-in? A: At the moment we are asking all our guests to book in advance to ensure that we can seat everyone based on social distancing and other COVID-safe measures. Click here to book your table. Please note that we are required by law to obtain contact details of our diners and retain these for 21 days for Test & Trace. We are unable to seat anyone without these details.
Q: Can I book over the phone? A: Yes of course! Please call us on 020 3941 9337.
Please be advised that bookings over the phone will still require card details to secure the table. The link can be sent to you securely via email, however, if the card details are not received within 5 days, the booking will be cancelled automatically.
Q: Why are you asking for card details? A: As we are operating at reduced capacity, we require additional protection against last minute cancellations and no-shows. Card details are required on all bookings and are required within 5 days of making the reservation to fully secure the table. All card details are encrypted and cannot be accessed once provided.
Q: Do you sell gift vouchers? A: Yes! Gift vouchers are available to purchase from the restaurant in values of £50, £75 and £100. However, at this time with the restaurant being closed we are unable to offer gift vouchers at this time.
