Built in 1726, it is heading round to its 300 years old birthday soon. At one time Nick was the youngest landlord in the country taking the pub at 20 years old, his wife Jane, slightly older by 10 months bemoans toy boys are not all they are cracked up to be.
It was originally 3 bars the public bar, the snug and the virgins passage! Which was believed to be the “take away” as in the jug and bottle pub it started out as, as not a lot of room to enjoy a pint in there.
We have been custodians of the building for coming up to the past 37 year and have made the addition of Squiffy’s restaurant and now the serviced Apartments @no.16.
We have seen many changes in the Village over the years and in the many different cliental who have crossed the threshold.
The Jolly Coopers is very much apart of the community and Village life, being at the heart of organising the very popular Classics on the Green car show, the great family film fun night Screen on the Green and being heavily involved in the past with the Christmas event in Hampton.
We have brought several guide dogs donated to many charities local and nationally and been involved in local food banks, school charities and sporting teams.
We have Jolly Coopers Football Club, Jolly Coopers Golf Society and Jolly Coopers Netball club
The Football team coached by Nick boasts many players who have been a part of the team from 6 years old and a good number who have been involved from age 11.
The pub has a bar billiard table that the locals brought for Nicks 40th birthday and it still retains a dart board, no fruit machines or a duke box for the comfort of all the customers.
The Jolly Coopers is a traditional pub with real ales on tap from local independent breweries that change on a regular basis, family run with good morals and standards, we pride ourselves that anyone can come in and feel they are in a safe environment to enjoy the pub as it should be.
We have original Coopers tools and lots of picture of Hampton in the past and of course the much-acclaimed rogues gallery in the corridor to the bathroom facilities, showing lots of events and customers who have frequented the Coopers over the years, could you be next to appear on the wall?
