Real Ale Ray left this review about Coopers Tavern

An excellent pub this one and can easily be classed as a destination pub. I know Joules have some good traditional pubs under their umbrella, but I would go as far as to say this pub in my opinion is their best. Another thumbs up, was the amount of good guest beers that were in here, eight in all, plus two Joules beers.
We were also lucky to find a seat in the small tap room in spite of the pub getting increasingly busier on our Friday eve visit. The manageress was very friendly and gave you a decent welcome. I immediately went for the Nene Brewery Big Bang Theory 5.3% which had loads of flavour and was turning into a good session ale. Also tried was the Butcombe Haka, also in fine fettle.
We took Rob Camra and Bucking Fastard's advice and went for an excellent curry next door.

I've been to Burton quite a few times over the last forty years but don't recall ever visiting this one before. It stands in the shadow of the Mouldy Corpse chemical plant and brazenly sticks two fingers up at it.
It's been so well described below I can't add much other than the fact that it seems Hardy & Hanson took the place on from Bass in the 1990s and it then became a free house before Joules brewery took it on.
I found a seat in the tap room where I tried the Kinver Half Centurion and the Joules Koltaka (both £3.20). Both were excellent. Other beers noted were Joules Slumbering Monk, Pale & Stones Number One, Sarah Hughes Mild, Nene Valley Jim Irvine Pale and Froth Blowers Gollop With Zest. The Sarah Hughes seemed to be the flavour of the month with the locals.
I thought this was a superb pub. I decided that with the pouring rain outside I would give the Weighbridge micropub a miss to give me an excuse to return.

Nothing to add to the descriptions and comments except the layout at the back is a bit odd meaning you need to form an orderly queue if there's more than a couple waiting, other than that minor grouch this pub is a delight and should on no account be missed if in Burton.
