We used to go to Coopers every Thursday and sometimes any other day. The quality has gone down the hill. We used to love our perfect steak and tbone special but for the last 2 months kitchen people don't seem to get those right, when asked for medium rare I was brought a medium in the middle and well done...

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.

The restaurant area upstairs is modern with an outdoor area that gives you the chance to relax and enjoy the ambience. They didn't have the tapas on the menu last time we visited so... More

Food is fantastic, classic pub grub with a creative yummy twist! Staff are professional and friendly and always happy to help you select that perfect wine with your meal or even the meal itself! Lol The menu changes every season which keeps it exciting however they always keep a handful classics like the steak and burgers.

Coopers Hotel is one of the best pubs in Newtown, and there are a few to choose from on King Street. Drinks are well priced and have a good selection of beers etc. The food here is also very good, the nightly specials and Coopers burger are normally a safe bet.
