Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the 2014 edition.

There’s no denying that food and drink options are limited at Brass & Copper, with just a couple of sandwiches and a single tasty and filling home-made soup on offer, plus one or two cakes and pastries, teas and coffees. But what it does, it does well. Rolls are generously filled with quality ingredients on tasty bread, for example, and coffee is dark and rich, prepared with care. The light and elegant interior, with wicker chairs and local art on the walls, makes it a pleasant place to take a break, and tables are widely spaced so you’ll never feel on top of other diners.
