From what I've seen a lot of food costs copper only, so I can't imagine it being much more than that, at least for normal everyday food. I would guess that a noble who is at an tavern buying food and drink and wanting to eat quite well would spend a silver stag or 2 on the meal.
If I were to package up a meal for a tavern based on the prices in the book, I'd probably say something like..
8 copper pennies for the following meal of..
2 Eggs, Half a loaf of bread, cooked and seasoned chicken, and beer.
Although, it sounds like the meals are a part of renting the room, at least thats what I get after reading it. I'll sometimes do that in the games I run to make it easier for people to calculate how much they have to pay and lump it into a single sum, which is included with the room total (i.e. food and drink, stabling the horse, and a single room costs 1ss).
