Coopers Inn

282 Exhibition Street
VIC 3000

I'd eaten at Coopers once or twice before and returned with a group of colleagues for lunch. An older pub it is tucked away on the corner of Little Lonsdale and Exhibition streets overshadowed by the surrounding office towers

Inside there are 3 levels we were seated downstairs, there are also two further stories above, although I've not been above the first floor. It was fairly quiet when we arrived at 12, but soon filled up.

The menu has plenty of Australian pub classics with a few other options, not many were good options for my attempts to control my high cholesterol!

The crumbed pork cutlet wasn't really an option for me but looked good and went down well.

The Seafood Linguini looked to contain the advertised tiger prawns, scallops, calamari,
mussels and fresh fish...

The bangers and mash provided a good amount of sausage!

The pie of the day was lamb, and as well as looking good contained decent meaty chunks!

The chicken parma was generously sized and seemed to satisfy it's recipient.

I had the veggie Thai green curry which was served with rice and a roti, which was closer to a naan or chapati, not that I remember ever being served bread with a meal in Thailand. The veggies were fresh and curry sauce good with out being great or super authentic.

Coopers is certainly popular and still manages to efficiently serve its patrons. The meals were between $14-18 and provide decent value if you are looking for pub food.
