My wife and I went to the Landford Poacher on a Sunday lunchtime as we had heard how good their carvery was. The rumours were true - it was fantastic! While we were there we had a look at the weekday menu too and it looks fantastic so we will definitely be back. I'd give the staff a 10/10 as... More

We came across this pub after driving through many villages that didn't have a pub. When I saw the pub had a carvery I wasn't expecting to0 much in terms of quality as often the quality isn't great and there are no other options. Sorry, Harvester always come to mind. The pub was exceptionally clean and welcoming and had a... More

We had a family Sunday lunch at The Poacher. The Carvery was was "better than average", but not sure it really hit "Very Good". Sunday lunch, but only the Carvery was on offer, a choice of roast beef and/or turkey. The beef was apparently done to perfection for our group, but too rare for some on nearby tables that wanted...

Very quiet but lovely setting. Fantastic roaring fire. It's a small menu but a good range. Even on a backboard mid week. My husband had pork belly with an unbelievably gorgeous mash from the main menu. I had the burger(which I never normally order) of the blackboard because all the other dishes came with mash,which I don't like because it's... More

Despite a poor recent review - we found the Landford Poacher ideal for our needs. In this case a Wednesday pub lunch. It is convenient, there is ample parking and we were made very welcome - neither rushed or neglected. The drinks were good and moderately priced and the Braised beef was excellent in presentation, taste and "fillingness". The blazing... More

Ate here at 7pm on a Thursday evening, we were the only ones in there all night. Before we could get through the door properly the bar man asked us what we wanted to drink, we hadn't had time to even think. We were asked if we were eating and menus were taken over to a table for us. Before... More
