Christmas at the Coop

It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

All of us at the Coop are SO ready for this Christmas. We reckon the whole country is right? And after a tough year, we think people will be going all out this December, and to be honest, we’re here for it.

Tree up in November? Why not.

Scoffing mine pies on the tram to work? Check.

Elf on repeat? What else.

With this in mind, we are going all out here in our restaurants and we want to make all of your events extra special. We’ve been working hard on our Christmas specials to create something for everyone – those who want the classic flavours, and those with a more adventurous palate.

On top of that, our main menu is available throughout Christmas, for the Grinches in the group.

We can cater to all numbers from 2-200 – click on your location below to find out more, along with all events and menus available for the festive season. Get in touch and one of our team will be more than happy to help you create the perfect Christmas event.

Now, Alexa, play Michael Buble.
