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.

We'd love to have you back on an evening for dinner as it gets warmer - sitting under the stars with a meal and a bottle... 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

Hi Jordo, Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review! Our Tapas are a recent addition to our menu and it's great to see our customers enjoying them. The arancini are a favourite of mine as well, but if you didn't get to order the dumplings you should come back and give them a try... 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

Thanks for taking the time to write a review for us! It's so wonderful to hear that you were happy with the recommendation to come and visit us for dinner! We do change the menu, it's seasonal so I believe you would have been sitting down to our winter menu. We'll be changing it again for Summer, but we've also... 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

You're spot on, our venue is a little deceiving from the outside, but I'm glad you found our Rooftop Garden - it's a great little spot. Thank you for your kind words about the quality of our food. We really do pride ourselves on producing and delivering dishes of the highest standard, so it's really great to hear what you... More

I had lunch here last week with my husband and the food was delicious. I had the linguine with prawns & rocket and my husband had the risotto with scallops. We normally share our meals but I just couldn't this time as the linguine was too good. I would come back in a flash.

Upstairs at Coopers Hotel is very different from when you enter via King Street. The food upstairs is really good and the atmosphere trendy (unlike the dingy room downstairs with strange people). We attempt to eat here once every couple of weeks. The steaks are really good!

Our absolute favourite pub in Newtown, frequenting at least once a fortnight. Food is always delicious- 'herb and pinenut crusted blue eye cod'- so so good. Atmosphere is always lively, even when it raining with thanks to the weatherproof canopy. Would highly recommend to everyone, we take all friends and family here when they visit!
