The Copper Horse
We visited The Copper Horse for Sunday lunch and were seated in the cosy, sumptuous dining area. Copper fixtures, rich colours, candlelight and showbiz memorabilia create stylish surroundings that are suited to a wide variety of dining occasions.
The friendly, professional staff brought us a miniature loaf of warm bread served with whipped garlic butter to begin, followed by our starters of chicken liver parfait with pear chutney and the baked Camembert served with warm garlic and rosemary focaccia. My main of slow-braised lamb shank with minted mash, vegetables and root vegetable gravy was delicious, and my partner’s sublimely tender topside of roast beef with a Yorkshire pudding and all the trimmings was just as accomplished and hearty. We spotted an early evening midweek offer of two courses priced from just £15, which I’ll definitely try on our next visit.
We were certainly well satiated after the first two courses, but couldn’t resist sharing a dessert from the mouth-watering list. We chose the fantastic lemon and raspberry Baked Alaska from a range of classics that also boasted sticky toffee pudding, crème brûlée, fruit crumble and chocolate brownie – you mustn’t leave without sampling something sweet.
