Me and my partner went to the Coopers on a Sunday afternoon to take a break from the Scarecrow Trail in the village. There were three or four choice of meats as well as an allacarte Menu. I opted for the roast beef which was tender and tasty. The roast potatos were fantastic and the Yorkshires were large AND home made. Two roast beef carverys came to about £20, we paid £26 for the two of us which included drinks. It's obviously not cheap but the quality was high and i think the price was about right. if i am being uber critical I would just mention two points. The guy serving the carvery partakes in an odd ritual of only filling a gravy boat up when people are being served, said gravy boat is no bigger than what you'd have on a table for two people. . . . .so when you run out of gravy there is non there for you to get. . . . you have to wait for other people to get served and for the small gravy boat to be topped up. Maybe this system is implimented to prevent gravy getting a skin from being sat under a heat lamp for hours but I think there must be a better method of gravy management than this. Also the set up is a little "dis joined". we hadnt been to the pub before and were not sure of the system of ordering food, paying, or gettng drinks; some places serve drinks at your table for example, some places require you pay first then get your carvery, non of this was made clear to us. Remember, you dont just review a restaurant on food, you also review them on the experience. I think in the case of the Coopers, that somebody being front of house giving it the whole "hello, have you been here before?" speech would be good. But these were minor points. The food was very good, the suroundings are lovely, very polite staff too. If you are in the area give it a go!!
