Spent a lovely night here with friends. Tapas entre was excellent. The Prawn Pasta was great. Drinks at normal bar prices. Fairly noisy but that was because everybody was having fun. Voucher from the Entertainment book made it even better value!

We are locals in Newtown and without a doubt this is the best pub food and atmosphere you will find. Do not be put off by the dingy downstairs area, head straight upstairs when you enter and onto the roof top beer garden. The staff are friendly and always helpful and the food is excellent with a pretty good menu... More

Thank you so much for your amazing review! Feedback like this is why we are in the industry we are in, and why we love our work. You are correct - the aesthetics of our public bar do not do our beautiful beer garden justice! Our rooftop courtyard & cocktail bar is one of Newtown's best kept secrets, we're glad... More

Venture upstairs in Coopers Hotel and you will be pleasantly surprised. The dining room is open, modern and well appointed - like most pubs you order at the bar and the food is brought to your table. The menu is a mix of traditional pub favourites with some more modern offerings. The menu included steaks, fish, pasta and salads. Our... More

We often eat at this hotel and have enjoyed every meal. The fish and chips are the best! We recently went on a Thursday and were surprised at how crowded it was as there was a 2 for 1 deal.

We used to go to Coopers every Thursday and sometimes any other day. The quality has gone down the hill.

They have a nice courtyard on the top floor and maybe it was the buy one get one free promotion there was quite a lot of people there which gave a nice atmosphere without being overly crowded. We had the pork belly and t bone which were pretty good...

We headed here to watch the Asian Cup Final match between Australia and South Korea as we thought it would have a good atmosphere for the game and we could grab some food.

Visited Coopers hotel. They take bookings and whilst downstairs pub is more of the local scenery, upstairs is a great place for food with family or friends. The food is restaurant quality that is kept seasonal end very broad. Fish, any type, is always fresh and the Sunday roast is one to have.
