The Coopers Arms is a nice looking pub that is just off Hitchin's town centre.
Once inside there is a smart looking room which is carpeted with the bar on the mid left side.
The pub is a McMullens tied house so i was well pleased to do it.
There are normal tables and chairs to the front,the rear left area is up two steps and is bare boarded with pew seats and and normal tables and chairs.
There were four real ales on the bar,i had a drink of McMullens AK,which was a very nice drink,the other MCMullens beers on the bar were Country Bitter,IPA and Citra Pale Ale.
There was decent background music playing.
I thought this was a very pleasant pub to have a drink in.

A traditional looking pub slightly away from the main pub/restaurant hot spots, it’s in a road that seems to be largely residential, but is nonetheless only a couple of minutes’ walk from the walk from the town centre.

It consists of two bars of a similar size, running either side of a central bar counter. The right hand bar is probably the cosier of the two, and this had plenty of black beams on the ceiling, a carpeted floor and a large walk-in fire-place to one side, although all it contains these days is a small wood burning stove and a couple of small benches, which must be a cosy spot in the colder weather. Old timber supports suggest that this may be quite an old building, and there is also some exposed brick partitioning, although possibly these don’t look quite so original. There was a fruit machine in the corner and a small TV above it was showing the football, although the volume was off so this was not too intrusive. Stripy furniture should as you might get in a Premier Inn completed the décor.

Food wise, the menu offered an extensive selection of “pub grub” dishes, with options such as lasagne, fish & chips, scampi and chips, pie of the day, sausage & mash, etc., as well as a selection of burgers and these were mostly priced around the £7 mark. My Chicken Tikka Masala was a generous portion and came with small pots of mango chutney as well as an onion salad to accompany the poppadom which is unusual in a pub. Taste wise, it was ok, certainly nothing special, and judging on the speed with which it arrived, clearly straight out of a packet. Sometimes it would be nice if they just pretended to make an effort in cooking it rather than delivering it to your table before you’ve even supped the head off your pint.

Beers on tap were all from the McMullen’s stable with their Country Bitter, IPA, AK and another whose name escapes me. Ciders were Strongbow and Aspall’s Suffolk. Overall this certainly isn’t a bad pub, but somehow it just didn’t quite hit the spot for me, although it’s difficult to pin down exactly why.

Best pub in Hitchin. Great food. Kate and Mike are lovely as are all the staff. Welcoming log fire and beautiful historic surroundings. Cant recommend enough.
