We recently attended a wedding here and must say how nice the event and the food were. The bars and function rooms are small but cosy and a good atmoshere all round. The meal at the wedding was just lovely and the night entertianment was spot on.

On a nice day, this is a lovely place to sit and have lunch overlooking the lake. The lunch menu is short, but food is very good quality - my steak and stilton ciabatta was lovely. The inside restaurant is also good, and the carvery, which is served every day, is pretty good value. Well worth a trip - especially... More

I normally visit the Coopers Arms for a drink outside and to walk my dog around the lake when the weather is nice, but I have also recently been here for a Sunday roast. It was so nice. I love this place, scenery is beautiful, especially when the sun is out.

Coopers Arms is always our first choice for a carvery! Over the past 15 years of visiting never have I been disappointed. The food is always fresh, lots of choice and always excellent service. I have never had off the normal but friends did and enjoyed their food. All of the staff are friendly, will acknowledge guest and cannot do... More

We're barging along the canal and moored near the lock for the evening and headed over for our evening meal. We arrived before evening service, though the staff were wonderfully hospitable and welcoming and the carvery had a good selection available and was hot and well cooked. Would definitely visit again!

From start to end, the Coopers Arms have been helpful, accommodating and friendly. We had a fantastic wedding breakfast and evening reception, with lots of positive feedback from our guests about the location, the food, the drink and the staff. From our point of view, the food was great and Amy, in particular, helped make the day a massive success.... More

I rang to make a booking for 1.45, Sunday lunch for 8 people. I was told it would have to be 1.30 or 2.00,so I decided 2.00. We arrived before 2.00 to be told our table wasn't ready, by 2.15 a member of our party asked why we was waiting, especially seeing as there was a lot of tables vacant... More

Carvery was not very hot good selection of veg, however beef was tender, but not overcooked, chef seemed to struggle to understand English, roost potatoes not crispy and Yorkshire puddings disappointing. The surf platter was very good but served on a slate not a plate. Desserts OK and well presented. Expensive for quite an uninspiring lunch.
