Table was booked for 8pm albeit outside. We had to wait for a gazebo to be put up. So effectively we sat outside in darkness. Waited 35 minutes for someone to take our food order then waited 45 mins between starter and main. My main was cold and burnt when it came out. Staff were slow to serve but quick to clear the table. Won’t be back

Very busy.
Very cramped.
Staff wearing outdoor coats all night not very professional.
Overall food tasty but potatoes were hard and both people who ordered chicken dinners could not eat the potatoes.
No apology. No offer of replacement.
Expensive menu. Asked at the till if we wanted to leave a tip.
Just average it’s the simple things that make you want to return.

Vastly improved with the arrival of the new chef. Value for money was non existant previously and now 3 courses for £21 is certainly reasonable and our Sunday lunch was delicious. Menu quite small but as it was printed on paper therefore I am hoping that means the dishes will be switched up every now and then to include seasonal ingredients and fun specials. Will definitely return to try out midweek menu.

I really enjoyed my experience at the Copper Tap! Food was delicious and we weren’t left waiting too long between courses. Pearse was our server who was brilliant.
Only thing was that the live music was a bit loud but this isn’t the fault of the restaurant and it was great to hear live music again

Second visit here, glad to see a change in menu as more variety now although still mainly steak or fish and only 2 chicken options. Had bruschetta for starter which tasted lovely and fresh followed by spiced chicken burger for main which was packed with flavour and had a lovely chipotle mayo sauce. Can never fault the cocktails and such a good variety to chose from. Service has always been first class and the staff are so friendly and approachable.

The food was delicious and the decor is absolutely gorgeous. My one criticism is that the dining room was very loud and it was quite hard to have a conversation.

Hi There, We totally get this frustration on the Music on Friday evening. We had music booked ad the artist showed up on the evening but failed to play as their amp was not operational. Very disappointing but we can assure you that we did all we could to make this happen but the gig got pulled from us literally 5 minutes before it was to start. Sorry for the disappointment. CT

The chef must have a very sweet tooth, both the pork ribs starter and churros dessert were far too sweet, so much so, that subtle flavours were rather overwhelmed. That said, the food was superbly cooked, nicely served and the wait staff were excellent. I would like to see a better vegetarian offer and at least one vegan plate of every size!

We arrived and were greeted courteously by staff. With our booking confirmed we were shown to our table. A nice atmosphere in the restaurant. We were quickly offered food and drinks menu. We selected our drinks and they arrived soon after ordering. We then were asked if we were ready too order and we selected our starter and main meal. Starter arrived promptly but we had to wait a little longer for the main course after we had finished our starter. The food was good and plenty to eat. Will be going back.

Main meal was very bland. I had the linguine and my sister had the chicken supreme and she thought the same. We had been to the copper tap previously and the food was delicious. We just felt the standard slipped yesterday. Quite disappointed in the main courses. Dessert and cocktails delicious. Live music fantastic. Atmosphere 10/10

No drinks Menu available so we had to rely on an ill informed waiter to tell us the names of the wines available while he took a guess at the Region and price or bottle/glass.
Food took 45mins to come which We didn’t mind too much (although a long wait with with young children).
When mains came - had to wait a further 8mins for the sides.
Again no Dessert Menu so we were told the desserts - with no description or price and expected to order.
When I tried to highlight my concerns at the end of the evening - there did not appear to be anyone who would take responsibility for taking them
on board.
Felt the quality of the food did not live up to over inflated prices.
Massively disappointed with the over all experience. Will not be back and will not be recommending this place to anyone.

We booked an outdoor table but when we arrived we were advised the outdoor area was booked by a wedding party and that our booking had definitely been booked for indoor. We double checked the booking confirmation and it was definitely an outdoor table we booked.
We asked the waitress who took our food order if the burgers came with a side and she advised the side was of “5 or 6 chunky chips”
We didn’t think this would be enough so we ordered another side of chips.
When our meals arrived there was a full side of chips with both plates and we were then left with a full side of chips which went to waste.
The food was pretty good, albeit the baps on the bottom of our burgers were very soggy.
A little disappointed as we were looking forward to dining outside and inside was quite warm.
Overall it was fairly enjoyable but I think the waitress staff could be a little better informed on the menu

Awful experience from start to finish. We went on a Saturday night and felt like all of the staff working had never worked in a restaurant before. Service was disastrous-slow and moody staff, the place was messy, and the food we got wasn't what the menu stated. We were expecting good things from the menu and it was just a let down-small portions of bland food, wrong food given, and cold. The cocktails we had were a waste of money as they were very basic and all served in water glasses. Staff even themselves stated that the night had been a disaster and offered to take off half our bill-but we left hungry and out of pocket! They shouldn't have opened if they weren't equipped to do so.

Overall a waste of a night. Will never return.

*Also note-they have a chicken and ham caesar salad on their vegetarian menu...this should have been a warning sign.

Hi, We are very sorry for this experience and fully accept that it was not good enough. We did have huge issues with a lot of our staff having to isolate and in hindsight should have pulled the service but did not want to disappoint our bookings. Unfortunately this was a wrong decision and the service for a lot of people on the evening was disappointing. This was genuinely a blip evening I would hope that in the future we can welcome you through our doors again. Sorry for the bad experience.

Food was amazing. We were a party of 6, 5 of us having travelled from Belfast. This was my second time here. My dad and I had the filled Bao Buns they were absolutely gorgeous. The rest of my party had club sandwiches or burgers all of which were very tasty. We were seated in the glass balcony and it was a beautiful day. Food took a fair while to arrive but staff were very courteous and friendly. Overall very good.
