Our second visit to Copper & Ink, and like the first time, food and service was outstanding. If nit-picking, both my partner and I would say that desserts prob not in the same league as starters or mains, but this didn’t detract from an amazing lunch. Excellent cocktails too.
Only other pointer to the chef - please stop with the beetroot marshmallows!

Firstly, let me say it's a lovely, local restaurant with a great vibe. Service was fantastic, the girls serving had lovely manners and went out of their way to keep us happy. Food was gorgeous, lots of interesting combinations and I loved every single course. Amazing!

My friend and I went for her birthday and we had the tasting menu. The food is amazing. Each course equally as delicious! The service is great, Tony and his partner spent ages with us after service having a drink and a chat. Not only is there food amazing they take time out to chat to you if you want and even have pictures. My second time here and I will be back next month to try out the new menu. One of my favourite places to go for a lovely dinner.

Had the tasting menu for a family get-together. The wine pairings were fantastically matched, service was superb and some of the dishes were fabulous, but a couple of them didn’t quite work for all of us on the night and the double-dessert didn’t work for me. Still, very impressed with Copper & Ink as a whole and a wonderful addition to the area. Have been a few times now and will definitely be back again soon. Enjoying the experimentation of the chefs and look forward seeing what’s on the menu next time.

Utterly faultless food - everything was absolutely delicious. Our favourite course was the crab salad but the guinea fowl was also excellent. Portion sizes are on the smaller size for the tasting menu and without adding the cheese in I was worried I wouldn't leave feeling full. Wines are also excellent.

A lovely experience. Wonderful food prepared by a chef who knows both how to cook and present an excellent meal. I found this as good a meal as any I have had in many years including at top end restaurants. The service is also faultless; friendly and personal without any intrusiveness.
Ill be going back and taking others with me. Thank you for a wonderful lunch

Lovely food from an interesting menu. Good list of wines by the glass. Quite noisy and echoey, so the ambience was less intimate than it could be. Overall quite pricey but definitely worth it for the quality of the food.

Service was a little slow and staff were often stood around chatting to each other rather than checking if we needed any extra drinks.
Menu is small but a good variety and the food was lovely, however some side dishes of veg to compliment the mains would’ve been ideal.

They should warn you that everyone on the table has to take the tasting menu or no one can have it. Having said that they were happy to accommodate the one member of our party who wasn’t keen on one of the dishes in the menu and offered to swap it for another starter which meant we could all have the tasting menu. Lovely atmosphere. Friendly staff. Good value

We have been to Copper and Ink twice before, but this time decided to try the tasting menu. I had the vegetarian one, my husband had the non vegetarian. It was delicious and full of surprises. We both felt pretty full at the end. The staff were excellent and attentive (but not overly so). The speed of service was perfect, and nothing lacked. My husband was so impressed with my vegetarian menu that he thinks he might try it himself next time (and that's saying something, given he's not generally interested in the veggie options). Its so good to have such an innovative and individual restaurant in Blackheath. Wishing the team all the best and hoping they keep it going at the very high standard they've set. Local dining is looking up!

Second time we've been and I felt exactly the same: food very good overall (some parts excellent and a few parts that were a let down); very good service by knowledgeable staff; at pretty acceptable prices for the quality.

Could improve but definitely will become a regular local for us - the best restaurant in Blackheath (with an apologetic nod to the very consistent Everest Inn).

May menu was outstanding .Crab starter in particular was very light and delicious . Guinea fowl and monkfish mains equally tasty . Good choices of desserts .Mango doughnuts were sumptuous and Millefeuille really light with just the right amount of almond cream and cherries .Husband also tried a desert wine recommended by Becky and chose a Japanese whiskey from the comprehensive list of wines and spirits.

This was a birthday meal & we booked Copper & Ink as we had been looking forward to visiting for a while. Unfortunately our waitress did not as pleased to be there as we were. A smile was definitely out of the question & we were made to feel as if we were time wasting as we asked for more time to persuade the great food selection.
This did not put us off however & the food really did not disappoint. We ate off the a la Carte menu & all 3 of us were spoilt for choice. The wine menu was reasonably priced & we had a good bottle of red for £30.
The waitress who served our deserts was much more friendly & we all left with smiles on our faces
A great restaurant & a good addition to Blackheath’s dining experience.
