    The meal was outstanding and fairly quick for a lunchtime service, although the wait staff were seemingly short staffed and hard to get attention.

    It was too noisy for a lunch time. We had our team lunch and could barely hear each other. Would suggest having the music on a lower volume to allow for conversations.

    Way too noisy downstairs for a relaxed Tuesday night dinner. But upstairs was available, as long as you don't mind walking downstairs for drinks & food orders.

    Food tasted good but $24 for a quinoa salad with a bit of nuts and one avocado is pathetic. Probably costs them $4 to produce…

    I booked a normal table via the online registration - however when we arrived at the venue I was told there was none available and was given a "High" table. This is not the option I selected when i booked this venue.

    The service was excellent at every point of the compass. Unfortunately, the food served at table did not match this. My partner's grilled fish was dry to the edge of desiccation. My meal was lukewarm. In essence, the kitchen lacked attention to detail at the most critical points in the process of cooking to table. Such a letdown really. Probably better to stick with drinks and dining elsewhere unless the kitchen can lift their game.

    Service great, very friendly and helpful waiter/barman. Family friendly pub with a good kids menu with generous servings and vegetarian options. Lovely vegan Parma w/ vegan cheese . Nice Surprise to find in a pub! Chips a little overcooked for our liking . Good slaw ! Bit loud but to be expected in that setting .

    Meals were thoughtfully and and professionally delivered with care and bursting with flavour. It is a refreshing change to receive properly drained, crisp & well seasoned chips. Main courses that are flavoursome not overcooked or oily but well balanced, fresh and satisfying. Great value for money....well done.

    We had dinner and drinks at Coopers Inn before a stand up comedy show just down the street at the Comedy Theatre. The chicken parmigiana and eggplant parmigiana with vegan cheese were both delicious, decent portion sizes and great value for money. Drinks were a tad on the expensive side ($23 for a glass of moscato and a schooner of xpa) but were lovely. I’d definitely recommend booking your dinner here when you’re going to see a stand up show for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, nice atmosphere and decor with friendly staff!

    Coopers Inn is a great pub in the city - close to all the great theatres and host to some excellent comedy acts. Food served in the bar was excellent - the spicy pumpkin salad was so tasty and filling. Comfortable and a great atmosphere.

    This was my second visit to Coopers and my friend and I decided to have a meal there before the comedy show. The service at the bar was fine, and ordering the meal was easy. The meal was the only downer on the night. My friend didn't eat of the hamburger because it wasn't very hot . I must admit the sausage I ate were fairly warm, but not hot. The mash was hot enough. The banger was not resting on the mash, unlike all other bangers and mash meals. I had a banger and mash. The banger was a coil type, as in a boerewors from South Africa. I wouldn't mind having it again. It's a nice pub with a great atomsphere.
