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.

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!

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
