My wife and I visited The Copper Top on Saturday evening. We had not booked but the waitress managed to find us a table even though most of the tables were pre-booked. I had the Haggis Olives and my wife had the Fish & Chips, both were excellent, well cooked, tasty and good value. We would return to this establishment... More

My wife ordered a gammon steak with mash instead of fries. When it arrived she had fries, we let it go, but then she found her gammon well overcooked. Making it tough and chewy, she didn't want to cause any problems, but I said we should get it chaned having also tried a small bit to find it chewy too.... More

What has gone wrong with the Coppertop as visited on Friday 3rd March and the quality of the preparation & standard of food and service was very poor.

We were greeted by a friendly member of staff and were shown to our table. For starters I had the chicken coujons with chilli dip, was really nice. Not too much, just enough for a starter. For main, I had the enchiladas and chips, massive portion, but I managed to eat it all! We also ordered a bottle wine, which... More

Out of 8 meals and a variety of different dishes ordered there was one meal that was a little too saucy for one of us.

Meal was so - so..Stodgy Lasagna, tasteless burger, and hard chips. 3 of the party had just finished eating, one was still eating and the waitress came to clear the plates away. Same with drinks, glasses were cleared away as soon as you finished. It was not near closing place and they were not busy, just a bit too efficient.

Food was so bad I refused to pay for my meal. Seriously need to rethink their cooking practices. Won't be going back, sadly another 2 customers lost.
