Wonderful night in Copper tap. Staff were so friendly and welcoming. Really enjoyed the food. The views out over the river were lovely. Music just started as we were leaving but it was excellent! Thanks so much Copper tap!

We booked an outdoor table but when we arrived we were advised the outdoor area was booked by a wedding party and that our booking had definitely been booked for indoor. We double checked the booking confirmation and it was definitely an outdoor table we booked.
We asked the waitress who took our food order if the burgers came with a side and she advised the side was of “5 or 6 chunky chips”
We didn’t think this would be enough so we ordered another side of chips.
When our meals arrived there was a full side of chips with both plates and we were then left with a full side of chips which went to waste.
The food was pretty good, albeit the baps on the bottom of our burgers were very soggy.
A little disappointed as we were looking forward to dining outside and inside was quite warm.
Overall it was fairly enjoyable but I think the waitress staff could be a little better informed on the menu

Awful experience from start to finish. We went on a Saturday night and felt like all of the staff working had never worked in a restaurant before. Service was disastrous-slow and moody staff, the place was messy, and the food we got wasn't what the menu stated. We were expecting good things from the menu and it was just a let down-small portions of bland food, wrong food given, and cold. The cocktails we had were a waste of money as they were very basic and all served in water glasses. Staff even themselves stated that the night had been a disaster and offered to take off half our bill-but we left hungry and out of pocket! They shouldn't have opened if they weren't equipped to do so.

Overall a waste of a night. Will never return.

*Also note-they have a chicken and ham caesar salad on their vegetarian menu...this should have been a warning sign.

Hi, We are very sorry for this experience and fully accept that it was not good enough. We did have huge issues with a lot of our staff having to isolate and in hindsight should have pulled the service but did not want to disappoint our bookings. Unfortunately this was a wrong decision and the service for a lot of people on the evening was disappointing. This was genuinely a blip evening I would hope that in the future we can welcome you through our doors again. Sorry for the bad experience.

Food was amazing. We were a party of 6, 5 of us having travelled from Belfast. This was my second time here. My dad and I had the filled Bao Buns they were absolutely gorgeous. The rest of my party had club sandwiches or burgers all of which were very tasty. We were seated in the glass balcony and it was a beautiful day. Food took a fair while to arrive but staff were very courteous and friendly. Overall very good.

Beautiful venue, looks great. Would come back for a drink. Sadly not for the food which was poor, overcooked burger, under cooked chips and ages to wait from ordering until it was on the table. Was hoping for better.

The Copper Tap is really something, the contractors who worked on this venue done a great job using the limited space to create a great venue. The staff of the Copper Tap were all lovely, they could be doing with another staff member or two just to help them out but they provided a great service. The food was great as were the drinks. I expected the price to be quite high given the lockdowns etc but I was pleasantly surprised at how fair the price was for a 2x 3 course meals. The staff are a credit to the place, they provide a great level of customer service. The chefs/kitchen staff are all obviously well experienced/trained/learning well as it tasted excellent but it was also amazingly presented. Head chef - good job! We’ll definitely be back.

A fantastic lunch with friends who travelled from Armagh. Nothing was a bother to the staff! They were even able to offer fabulous mocktails and the food was stunning! Staff were friendly and had a great energy from the moment we walked in. Would highly recommend and look forward to visiting again in the near future!

Potato and leek soup was so creamy it was almost inedible. It was like a tub of double cream had been heated up and a dash of leek seasoning added - definitely need a lot less cream and a lot more leek and potato (and seasoning)!
Chicken risotto was totally bland and unseasoned. Portion was also too small, but didn't matter as I couldn't eat it. The black lump was horrible - I think it was black garlic.
The homemade breads included a curry bread - I don't know who in their right mind would want to eat curry bread. It was horrible. And all the bread was stale. When the kids' goujons and chips arrived we wished we'd ordered that instead - their chips were the only nice thing served. Such as shame as we had high hopes and the decor was lovely. I think the menu needs re-jigged. And they need a new chef - we nearly used up all of the salt and pepper on the table trying to get some flavour into the food!

Very impressed with Confirmation phone call from Pierce prior to our arrival. Very professional, confident & friendly manner. This was apparent in all the Waiting Staff. Food was very tasty (veg portions could’ve been slightly bigger). Calm and relaxed Sunday afternoon, surrounded by a happy buzz. Highly recommend and we will definitely be back when we’re in the area- Making sure we book much earlier in order to secure a table for a Saturday night!

The menu had a minimum selection on a late Sunday afternoon.... when we placed our order with the waitress we weren't offered any sides with the main course....when the meals arrived apart from The steaks having chips no other sides for the other 2 meals...waited an hour for our meals to arrive....the food was hot when it did arrive the steaks had a bitter taste from the cooking process... overall not somewhere that I would rush back too....

Food was amazing start to finish. Such a good meal second time around compared to the first time.
Service was a bit slow, was 1 hr in before our mains arrived. Although the food made up for it. On another note i was sad to have been told that there was no salad starter or I couldnt get a larger caesar salad in place for it.
Would recommend however.

Fab decor and staff very good, especially Emily and Tyrone. Evening menu was limited, thick cut chips were a bit under done. Also appeared to be bulking out with lots of lettuce! Fish dishes could be simpler especially for “plain” eaters. Service was slow, however, didn’t mind on this occasion as was with friends for first meal since lockdown. Booking online a great idea. Will definitely be back

Excellent food, brilliant cocktails and great service. The surroundings and decor are really well done. We all really enjoyed our meal. Slight issue with volume and type of music but quickly sorted out by the attentive floor staff. No vegans or vegetarians in our group but would have like to see options on the menu. All in all an excellent evening and I am looking forward to trying breakfast and lunch

Food was delicious, everyone happy at our table. Slight delay getting dessert but new business and staff and it was very tasty when it came. Minor comment to have salt, pepper, sauces on the table please so they don't have to be requested. We will certainly be back thank you.
