Men entering Copper Blossom may be required to tap into their feminine side. If you are threatened by florals it's not the place for you. 

I was with my female pals though and Copper Blossom has done everything possible to make us feel right at home.  

Cocktails, Sauvignon and gin and tonic ('light' Fever Tree and Carroun please) were promptly ordered along with haggis bon bons and salmon and beetroot risotto (£14.45) times three. No messing with menu indecision, it would waste valuable talking time. Fish dishes are as prominent on the menu as my middle-aged spread and flowers are used as garnish at every opportunity. A side of glazed carrots with orange blossom anyone?

As L got the young Portuguese waiter's inside leg Liz and me tucked into the bon bons. Cracking crispy coating, softy spicy steaming meat, neep puree nicely whipped and whisky jus (£5.50); this top notch starter scran was enjoyed by all. 

Main courses plates were decidedly pink what with the fish and risotto and had the de rigueur edible petals. Very tasty, not in a knock your socks off high end way but just really yummy, unpretentious satisfying plates of food.  Vegetable crisps added texture. 

Desserts were declined but we did go for more drinks - calvados for me Sauvignon for L and a Three Sheets to The Wind for Liz which comprised plantation rums, Hennessy Cognac, Pierre Ferrand orange curaçao and lemon (7.95). The latter contained a huge ice rock and was a delicious mix of spirits and citrus. I shall definitely pop back for one as well as the lush sounding calvados cocktail - calvados, clarified apple and bitters (8.50).

Copper Blossom would be a great place to take your mum, to visit solo or with friends. Mr Bite would say he is in touch with his feminine side but I think the lack of ale would put him off.
