Amazing :)

A great place! We ordered a barramundi from the specials and it was unexpectedly good for a pub. A nice garden bar on the second floor.

The service at the bar is welcoming and friendly! The pub food is great for the price ($12 steak or schnitty) and Adam at the downstairs bar is a total champ!! We will be back for sure :)

We had lunch at Coopers today and it was the best yet. The upstairs dining is always a great option with a relaxing vibe, great staff and excellent service. We have had tapas many times in the past but decided on a meal each off the menu this time around. I had the grilled fig, burghul salad with the chicken... More

anytime we eat here its been good, prices are okay for Newtown. staff are good and the upstairs is clean with good vibe in the outside area. the one thing that drives madam nuts is the spelling mistake in the big painting of King street on the back wall.

There is a popular restaurant upstairs doing brisk trade. Its nicer up here than downstairs which really could use a reno and some new carpet. They have a wide range of craft beers and the bar staff are friendly.

Saturday night visit to the Cooper's turned out to be a great choice for excellent food and a nice atmosphere. We shared a hummous and had the slow-cooked beef cheek, both of which were simply delicious - far beyond the expectation of the local pub!

We went to the Cooper's Hotel as it was in the Entertainment Book. The upstairs restaurant/bar area has a nice outdoor space & the venue was very popular when we visited. I had the chicken schnitzel and my hubby had the burger. The food wasn't bad value for money when you have a 2-for-1 voucher, but I wouldn't go back... More
