The week this pub opened it had a fault with the air con and the place was freezing. To my mind it's never been fixed. Sitting comfy and warm and next thing there is an icy blast from the air con and you need to put your scarf and coat on. Do none of the staff notice? It's like sitting in a wind tunnel. Same with the food.You order and it arrives within 20 minutes but, and it's a big but, it must have sat in the dumb waiter for ten minutes because it's never ever hot unless you send it back and they bring out a fresh plate of food; then it's hot like it's come straight from the kitchen.
The staff are friendly and the pub is clean. Table clearing is a bit on the slow side. Expect to look at empty glassware for over an hour and plates a bit less.
Like many Wetherspoons the place lacks atmosphere but the right company makes up for that.

Visited Cooper Rose with friends after a Sunderland game spirits were high due to our win, laughing and joking on whilst also been conscious about people around us overall having a good time as meeting up with friends from other parts of the country we don't often see so making the most of our night out, to be told by a team leader our laughing was too loud !!! The team leaders attitude was terrible and was obvious he had no experience in dealing with the general public by how he presented himself and behaved himself, we left the bar and went onto other bars who allowed fun and laughter and won't be paying the Cooper Rose a visit ever again. So if you want a fun night and be allowed to laugh i would recommend you walk straight past this bar.

Visited once n wasn't great but decided t give it another go-unfortunately the same the second time round. Food totally overcooked and dry, chicken strips rock hard n battered prawns went to dust n that was just the start. The prices aren't bad but you still expect edible food. The girl on the bar was very nice and polite but only good point. Won't return.

We often visit the cooper rose. Yes it is just another Weatherspoons but it has a different atmosphere to ones we've been to before. It is always clean and fresh and the food is always very good. We always sit upstairs where is has a good view for people watching!
