There was a fire burning in the bar and there... More

We usually have the flat iron steak which is so tender and tasty, and the garlic prawns with it. All was great as always. The only small gripe is the the chef appears to have reduced the amount of King prawns as we only had 5 between us whereas we usually have at least 4 or 5 each. We didn't... More

26 members of the family got together for a Sunday family meal. We came from South Wales, others from the Kent coast but most were nearer to the venue. Had to wait for them to open at bang on 1200hrs but was greeted warmly by the staff. Meals were pre ordered. My salmon fish cakes were hot but the chips... More

This has always been a favourite of mine and whenever we go to Copthorne dinner has to be on the list. Last Friday our visit was a real disappointment. The young waitress took our order but only one out of four arrived correctly! My starter the scotch egg which is usually amazing arrived and was not crispy and the sausage... More

So nice to go to a venue where the menu is fresh food; very clearly NOT 'bog-standard' supplies from a catering wholesaler. A nice varied lunch time menu; all be it a little too 'fish' heavy (buy t our group love fish!). Traditional Fish and Chips were a major hit!!

Stopped for lunch there with my business partner. The place was dead, just the two of us in a whole pub and dead quiet.... Untill we ordered food and then started to hear a lot of strange noise and swearing from the kitchen!! We ordered chicken skewers which were excellent as as well as absolutely massive onion rings as sides.... More

This little gem is only 10mins from Gatwick. The food here is excellent as well as the staff and service. My husband had the Argentinean Steak and I had the Chicken & Chorizo Esptada the presentation and the quality of the food was what you would have expected from a high end restaurant. It was a bit expensive about £22... More

Starter was lovely, even though the sharing platter we actually wanted was no longer being served. Main was really nice. We were then brought the dessert menu, only to then be told the kitchen had shut. This was only 21:30. Have never before experienced being told halfway through a meal, that they are no longer serving food!
