Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Finding Copper City for the first time has truly been a Bank Holiday highlight. Having a rare day off I took to adventuring Nottingham City for the first time in a good while. After wondering the busy streets and dodging endless bottom feeding idiots, my...stomach, feet and patience told me it was time for a break and something to refuel my wanderings. While wandering and window shopping the myriad of copy and paste highlight street pubs and cafes (of which all struggling with culinary imagination) I stumbled in Copper City praying it to be something different. To my delight I was welcomed by a rotund chap at the door and offerd a seat and table, a stretch different from a glare and grunt I recived from other venues. The decor and warm lighting gave a comfortable feel with the brunch menu offering a better selection then over cooked egg and chips from its neighbours. I won't sway decisions on what to eat but my choice was top tier and pleasantly surprised by the price and choice of none / low alcohol drinks. will definitely be venturing back to try the evening menu. Lastly just a massive thank you to the chap who seated me and the lady behind the jump for making my stay comfy. Once more into the streets, refueled and happy. Wicked thanks Copper.More

Where do we start here! Came here as visiting our son at uni. The Greek dark haired girl with glasses was awful, no customer service, didn’t listen to basic requirements, had to ask for salt and pepper. She was too busy chatting with her fellow...comrades at the bar. The toast should have came with no butter on it came with butter on, no ice in the Coke it came with ice, the list goes on and on!!! I would expect a full refund having spent £62 on breakfast, weather spoons would have been half the price and better quality…… to top it all never was asked about dietary requirements!More

I booked for me and my mum for Mother’s Day. Greeted by a lovely lady and taken to our table, a free mimosa for mums even better! Ordered drinks and breakfast. Food came which was so yummy but drinks hadn’t arrived, the waitress asked us...if we would like some more drinks and we said we had ordered but not arrived yet. Drinks came half way through food. I asked for tap water twice, eventually getting up to ask for it when we originally ordered it. Just felt really ignored. Asked a waitress for the bill, never turned up so went to the bar to pay. Can’t fault the food or drinks but service could be so much better!More

Booked a table for 5pm Saturday evening, so expected it to be busy. I had to ask two members of staff who were pleasant enough which was our table. Once at our table we had to wait a good ten minutes for menus and then...once ordered it was a least 40 minutes before our food arrived. We all only ordered main courses and to be fair the food was average. We then ordered hot drinks but were waiting so long I had to again go and find a member of staff and explain we needed to cancel the drinks as we were going to the theatre. I can’t fault any of the staff I could find there was just a distinct lack of them for a city centre bar early doors on a Saturday. Saving grace …..we got 15% off because we were going to the theatre.More

Can't really say much about this place. Been here in 2016 and was treated very badly. The food was alright but the service was horrid. The waitress who came to check in on us was not only rude but she looked at us like we...didn't belong there. Didn't return since and won't ever. There are many good cafes and restaurants to look forward to when in nottingham. Spending money on people or an establishment where they treat you poorly is not something I look forward to. The manager then did nothing to make us feel better either. Ignored us throughout.More

Party of 4 called in for brunch/lunch. Wasn't packed and we hadn't been before so unsure where to sit. Headed upstairs and waited, one of our party went to ask how we ordered and was told someone would come to the table. Member of staff...eventually came, asked if we'd booked a table and when we said no we were told only bookings were allowed upstairs. We said we'd go back downstairs and hubby joked that we hoped we'd find a table - member of staff was very sarcastic, saying there were loads of tables and, smirking, she hoped we would all have 'lots of fun' - this was not said in joking, pleasant way. Straight away put us off staying - not welcoming or good customer service and certainly won't be trying it again. However, worked out in our favour as we went straight across the road to Josephines and the experience was completely the opposite - I'll be leaving a review for them also.More

There appears to be a well stocked bar area which I would assume also includes non alcoholic drinks. As I was there at lunch time my choice of drink was a coffee. Sorry I can’t be more helpful.
