Coopers Tavern Burton

In the matter of months the Coopers Tavern in Burton-upon-Trent has become a firm favourite — a place where I would love to hang my metaphorical hat and contemplate the glory of beer and pubs. That moment will have to wait though, but you can read about it in today’s Daily Telegraph here — I’m in Burton next week for a couple of days during the Brewing Industry International Awards (by way of judging at the SIBA craft keg competition) so no doubt I’ll find my way to the Coopers for a spot of study. 


  1. You can almost seem my favourite table in that photo. Converted from an old Singer sewing machine that still has a working treadle; sipping a pint of Bass whilst making the wheels go round is strangely thereputic.

  2. Simon, its even more thereputic when there are two of you, supping Jaipur and watching the world go by.

  3. well I hope to be back there sometime this week guys.
