It doesn't look much from the outside but upstairs is amazing. I went with my daughter on a recent trip and the food was sensational. I had fish (real fish, not some wet watery frozen stuff) and my daughter had the steak - in hindsight, we ought to have shared the steak cause it was huge, and cooked to perfection.... More

I had lunch here last week with my husband and the food was delicious. I had the linguine with prawns & rocket and my husband had the risotto with scallops. We normally share our meals but I just couldn't this time as the linguine was too good. I would come back in a flash.

Upstairs at Coopers Hotel is very different from when you enter via King Street. The food upstairs is really good and the atmosphere trendy (unlike the dingy room downstairs with strange people). We attempt to eat here once every couple of weeks. The steaks are really good!

On a recent trip to Sydney we met friends at The Coopers, upstairs has a great vibe, the bar service was great, the young barman was quick and really friendly, then came the meal! It was restaurant quality, absolutely delicious and very quick despite the big crowd. We all loved it, my partner reckoned his steak was one of the... More

Our absolute favourite pub in Newtown, frequenting at least once a fortnight. Food is always delicious- 'herb and pinenut crusted blue eye cod'- so so good. Atmosphere is always lively, even when it raining with thanks to the weatherproof canopy. Would highly recommend to everyone, we take all friends and family here when they visit!

The Coopers is a strange place, entering the downstairs bar you're met with a group of sorry looking older singles scattered around the place seemingly drowning their sorrows in a schooner of Tooheys. The place looks ordinary and boring. Venture upstairs and its a whole other world; the place is lively, fresh, often standing room only (bar the dining area)... More

Went to Coopers for an early dinner. Very quiet but friendly atmosphere. The beer was cold and good and the rib-eye steak was the best steak I have had in months (and great value at $25 for a 350g). They have reduced the menu and simplified the food, but this is better than the complex list they used to have.... More

I visited Coopers again (hesitantly), after a really bad experience 6 months ago. I was very pleased to see a compete change around. The food, service and attitude were totally different and the place was full with happy families and couples. Not aware of the reason, but I would suggest a possible management review. What ever the reason, it was... More

I have been to this pub numerous times for a great and good value lunch and nice surroundings. Its been about 3 months since I last attended and the changes are immediate. The place was almost empty on a saturday afternoon at 1.30 pm (never a good sign, given this was a footy final saturday). The meal area was markedly... More

We met some friends here for dinner and took the kids along however we arrived around 830 on a friday night and by then the pub was pretty busy and noisy. We have eaten here a few times and the food is always good. I like that you can see the chefs cooking your food through the passe.Would definately reccommend... More
