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.

Hi Jonas, Thanks for writing a review about our venue! It's so wonderful to hear you say that we're one of the best pubs in Newtown!! There are so many bars and pubs in the area, particularly along King St. So many have undergone renovations and have been revamped, it's really nice to hear that from one of our customers.... More

4 of us went to Coopers for a pub meal on Monday night, and didn't get past the 1st page of the menu. We were sold by the sound of their tapas share menu to the point we brought every dish (except the olives) plus the spicy chicken wings. There was no way we could have been disappointed with result... More

I must admit I am a regular here. The service is friendly and the food is above standard. There are good pub classics but there are other dishes that are more adventurous without being pretentious or overly expensive. I recommend this hotel!

Thanks for the review! We love hearing from our customers, particularly our regular patrons. You have pretty much summed up what we try to achieve here at the Cooper's; everyone's delicious pub favourites, as well as serving up something a bit different and special that pushes the boundaries of regular pub grub. It's great to see we are hitting the... More

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 think this place may be under new management or really lifted their game. i have been coming here regularly for a few years and about 2 years ago the food and service really went downhill. But coming here again recently both food and service levels were back up to scratch. they've really streamlined the menu and it changes seasonally.... More
