Now has a bàr counter and the very unpleasant landlord makes sure yòu know it. Donot think you are going to wander around and enjoy the pub like before.
Never mind the Devonshire and Roebuck are nearby

Superb, characterful, multi-roomed pub. Friendly welcome and a superb pint of Draught Bass served by gravity. A 'must visit' when in Burton. 10/10.

Lovely place with bags of character and an excellent choice of beers and ciders. I had the Oakham Bishop's Farewell which was in excellent condition. There was also an array of bottle-beers available from the "bar" which is tucked in a corner at the back and reminded me of a tuck shop.
There are three rooms at the Coopers, a snug to your right as you walk in - a nice little room with a fire. There's the room you walk through to get to the bar and then the room where the bar is. This final room is my favourite - especially the raised seating at the back. There's not a lot of space so it must get pretty cosy when it's busy. Interesting paraphernalia abounds and the staff were very friendly. Looking forward to visiting again.

Our first return visit for 25 years when it did just Bass. It's a gem and now serves a variety of beers and styles.

As previous viewers have noted, this pub is very special indeed. There are three rooms - you will be in the first of these when you enter the pub, a second room with a fireplace leads off to the left, continue to the back of the first room, cross a corridor and you will find yourself in the bar area. There is no bar as such, just a tiny counter on the corner of the L-shaped space. There is fixed seating here and a curious raised area to the right of the bar. The room is lit by a skylight during the day and was incredibly atmospheric.
Beers are available on cask and keg, many of the cask on stillage. On our visit there were several beers from the Joules brewery. I had one of the draft beers which unfortunately had diacetyl but the American IPA on keg was good. We also enjoyed several pints of Jaipur on cask.
My companion and I both agreed that the pub had gone straight into our Top Ten, I would possibly put it even higher. If you are in Burton on Trent, you cannot miss a visit to this wonderful pub
