i note someone describing the Copperfields as being like a prison visiting room, well, while I imagine this is in the eye of the beholder but his comments regarding the lights shining down on the food making it look disgusting, I wonder if this issue has since been addressed ?
Where that statement came from, I don't know, as I see it as a very different place. A great bar, with an atmosphere and feelings of centuries gone buy, with an amazingly kind, courteous and polite barman.
We ate in the restaurant, drank in the bar, where the food being served looked pretty good under what I would class as lights creating the right ambience.
The bar is lovely staff great lights are a bit low but that's the style of the bar ,its not a dining room it's a bar and food great
They must be thinking of somewhere else because all I recall is a great place good food and brilliant bar staff and an all round friendly hotel
Can say nothing bad about this place, we ate there and drank there lots as the world cup was on ... Martin and Alfredo are the loveliest member of staff .... dont listen to bad reviews
HI, used Copperfields for a drink only unfortunately not for meals. Pleasant and relaxing bar to enjoy a conversation and a drink. Can’t say I noticed the lights. Always found staff courteous to customers. We had a few meals in the restaurant which were okay but not outstanding, preferred to venture out and try the numerous restaurants around about. Not very helpful sorry, can only say we loved this hotel and reception staff were outstanding.
Yes there are lights over the food but we found it well presented and good quality.
I hope this answers your question.
Sounds rather a strange observation... as it was the bar,or extension of it, we didn't have a lot of experience of it and the lighting as we just used it for drinks then moved into the main restaurant. WE may have been given different food in there than Copperfields. Sorry that I don't think my response is that helpful as we didn't sample the food there. What was a problem, though, was the head barman being very off with us for ordering the 'foreign wine' (and they should change their nomenclature on this!) and charging us different prices for the same drink.
We thought the buffet to be fair value for money. We ate there five out of seven nights because we got plenty to eat and it was a nice atmosphere sitting at a circular table for a group. Never really noticed the lighting.
