Restaurant details
Reviewed 21 August 2018 via mobile

We were recently visiting friends in Bandon and after a long trip, needed something to eat. We googled restaurants in Bandon and liked what we red about the copper grove and boy did it deliver.
We both decided on sirloin steaks. They were cooked to perfection, with very tasty sides. The pepper sauce was delicious, I practically liked the bowel clean.
The pub itself is an understated contemporary, not in your face basically, the perfect place to relax and enjoy an evening of culinary delights. All dishes served by very attentive and friendly staff.
We were so full after the steaks we had no room for deserts but were very tempted as they red and looked amazing.
This pub knows how to produce and deliver excellent food and great value with it. Well worth a visit.

Great food pleasant staff and good value for money.. Can't ask for much more than that really. I'd particularly recommend the grilled chicken ciabatta and the seafood pasta that they sometimes have on the specials menu.

This is a bar whose main business is food! It’s a great place for lunch/dinner in the heart of the day. There’s a nice menu with a strong emphasis on fresh local produce (meats, fish, vegetables) and the portions and generous.
There’s table service which is friendly and prompt.
Good value too at 13.50 or so for main course and coffee.

Visited on Sunday with family for lunch, it is very busy, but to be fair they will accommodate you and get you a seat, but it would be recommended to book. The staff are very friendly and efficient and there is a good choice on the menu. Some of the tables are a little close to each other, but couldn't fault it.

I didn’t expect gourmet food here but did expect well executed simple fare.

Cooking chips properly isn’t hard and yet they manage to mess it up.

The food is dry and insipid served in a room devoid of atmosphere.

The wait staff do their best but I’ve a sneaking suspicion they don’t believe in the product they are serving either.

The owners need to wake up, fire the chef and cut the menu down to 4 or 5 well executed choices.

Dear Gerard F

Thanks for taking time to write a review on Copper Grove following your recent visit.
When I read your review, I actually wondered why you bothered visiting us or indeed why you stayed to eat with us, you “did not expect gourmet food”. Your definition of insipid ie “lacking flavour, weak or without taste” is not keeping with the many positive comments we have received from our other customers.
Chips are a personal choice to a customer, and if they were not to your satisfaction, why did you not ask them to be changed, we ask each of our customers is/was everything ok and we have no complaints on file about our chips.
Our staff are our best asset and Customer Care is their number one priority at all times, Customer feedback on our staff is always top class and remains as well today.
So to sum up here, I won’t be taking any advice from you on how to run our business.
