Good atmosphere and a good menu. The steak and fish dishes are particularly good. The service is always great and the prices are reasonable. The two for one special on Thursday night is fantastic. The upstairs section of the pub has a great indoor and outdoor area.

Friday night drinks, great venue. Staff were great and a good selection of beers, try the La La Larger. It's a little pricy but a very good drop. The up stairs courtyard is great, even when it's raining. Give it a try.

Have been upstairs to the main restaurant a couple of times previously, this time had lunch in the bar on street level. Ordered the fish and the sliders. Waitstaff were wonderful, food was fresh and very satisfying. I can't help but think some of the negative reviews are just grudges, or the reviewer got the wrong pub, we loved it.... More

I was at this pub on 26th September for Tranny Bingo, with a group of friends. We won a $100 food voucher with an expirt of 9th October. It suited the group of 5 to meet up on the 29th October to have dinner & use the voucher. Upon ordering steak & pork belly dishes, we were told the voucher... More

We had a lovely lunch; beef pie, brisket roll, butcher's cut (t-bone) and a kid's cheeseburger. Quick, efficient service. I like the room - big, light and airy without feeling like a food court. Good family or friends get together space. Meals were tasty and fresh. Generous portions. The beef pie was delicious. A solid pub meal - not on... More

When I used to live in Newtown, I used to come to the Coopers for one of the best steaks in Sydney. OMG the ribeye was amazing and worth the price. Ordered a couple of steaks over the weekend and unfortunately, not really up to scratch for the price. The steaks were overcooked and the meat, although talked up on... More
