About
COOP Chicken House is located just a minutes walk from Newcastle's Central Station on Collingwood Street, dead opposite Revolution Vodka Bar and across the way from some of the town's most popular bars and clubs. We're all about simple food done well with a laid-back & non-fussy approach. Think tables full to bursting with wood-fired chicken, charred corn, sweet potato fries and homemade slaw washed down with a pint or two of the local brew. Whether you are looking to hire the whole venue (capacity 50), a large family booking, a table for two or a lone-wolf business type you'll be met with a warm welcome and some of the finest chicken around at COOP Chicken House. For groups of eight or more

The reviews and pictures looked great and the service was quick and good. The wings I ordered were really dry and had precious little sauce on, you pay extra for shots of sauce at a pound for some in a single shot glass. You would...More

I visited coop with my brother. It’s such a good concept that you can get a library of hot sauces by the shot. We had the half chicken and house wings and they were fantastic. I really liked the hot coriander sauce and smoke potion...More

enjoyable family visit for 4. Food very tasty even without the great choice of spicy shots to go with it. Good value for money. Would become regulars but only visiting Newcastle for few days however will return if we’re back in Newcastle again.
