Group of 8 diners. Restaurant warm. Service good. Fairly good choice on menu yet still nothing to really wet personal appetite. Meal was fine-average. Poor car parking.

Hi Andrea, thanks for taken the time to review your visit, personally I think it's a little unfair, giving that you never mentioned what you ate while dining with us, and to say nothing wet your "personal appetite" which is the unfair piece, I like to think our menu is always seasonal, offering a wide range of dishes, from Hereford...

The Copper Hen is a little bit off the beaten track in Fenor but it's worth the trip for the food. While the menu isn't huge it is supplemented by a specials menu (which unfortunately we weren't shown), and a lot of the menu is locally sourced. For some reason there were no prices on the menu but two starters,... More

Restaurant just outside Tramore, called out the Friday night but we're fully booked, so we booked in for Sunday dinner... I was disappointed in the food, i had great expectations for it. No gluten free bread. A new staff member had just started and we had a million and one questions about the food she did very well to keep... More

Great value and beautiful fresh food. The only criticism was that there was no baby bowl or anything suitable for a young child. Friendly staff though.
