We visited for lunch as a large family party of 14. Two of us are vegetarians and it is difficult to find a place that will offer a vegetarian option as part of a traditional Sunday lunch. The menu at The Coopers offers a risotto or a pasta dish as a veggie option but we really wanted something that could... More

A friend and I visited for lunch and ordered sandwiches, which were not cheap but we thought would be lovely. They were tiny and had very little salmon in them so I had to eat again when I got home (I’m small so not greedy!)

Visited here with a party of 13 family for Sunday lunch. The building and setting are both great places, with a choice of 3 meats on a carvery... or alternatives such as lamb shank from the Sunday menu. Drinks and meals are reasonably priced, and they catered for two special diets without question (a cheese sandwich and a gluten free).... More

My friends and I have chosen Coopers for our regular get-togethers over a number of years and have always been more than satisfied with the food and service. Last night we were so disappointed with both that we intend to meet elsewhere in future. It was very busy but the service and attitude of the staff was poor. Our designated... More

About 20 minutes form the centre of Derby, The Cooper's Arms stands in an elevated position in the village of Weston on Trent. Myn previous report stands, it delivers a consistent standard that exceeds the carveries offers by many local competitors. The have been improvements to the non-carvery menu and the building. We were very happy with our visit. The... More

Weston Hall is a distinctive 17th century mansion house, with its somewhat strange appearance being due to the fact that the house was abandoned when only half finished. The main bar areas are located in the semi sunken basement which, whilst restricting the view simply adds to the atmosphere, combining the traditional cosiness of an English pub, with a wide...

The setting next to Cooper's Lake combined with the traditional English Inn architecture round off the delicious food and atmosphere of the pub perfectly.

Great location. Food fab, Service could be better. I know it was a busy day but 40 min wait for a sweet bit much. Also not once asked if we wanted more drinks. They missed another £20 off the bill by not doing that! As I say they were busy but waiting staff seemed more interested in cleaning tables than... More

The Coopers Arms is a high-end quality restaurant/pub in the village of Weston-on-Trent, just south of Derby, a mile or so from the A50. It is a substantial old building in a good location, with several eating areas to suit most occasions. We like the conservatories with their views over the adjacent lake/pond. The traditional English food and service are... More
