Booked for a birthday lunch on Saturday and dined on the outside terrace.Starter of pigeon was excellent and the sirloin steak truly superb.My partner had the wild sea bass which we were told was delivered direct from Newlyn,Cornwall.It was magnificent.We went off the private cellar...for our wines which were selected by Aga..again great choices.Overall a lovely experience.To sum up I will use a quote from a Rolls Royce dealership..’Quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten’.More

My partner and I visited for dinner. Lovely place bud the service was poor, at best. There are plenty of staff but there is a lack of leadership and direction. On arrival, we were sat down ot then took over 20 minutes to get a...drink ordered. The starters were then delayed bu a further 20 minutes. The main course arrived 1hr 45 minutes after we arrived. Too long imo. Out of the 9 tables there were only ever 2 eating at any one time. The staff were all grafting but in the wrong direction and it seemed the polish girl had to take orders, pour wine, commentate on the cocktails. Not great imoMore

A fantastic find local to us in Stoney Stanton, where there is a dearth of good restaurants. Imaginative menu, great service, well-presented dishes, lovely ambience. Highly recommended…

First visit to the Poacher's Brasserie and 4 of us had dinner last Saturday which was exceptional. The menu is sophisticated, well thought out and each dish was beautifully presented. The quality from the kitchen and chef is of a high level and it is...matched by the enthusiasm and warmth of Aga who runs the front of house and has a detailed knowledge of all the dishes. The starters were scallops, wood pigeon and Egg65 all of which we're incredible. The mains ox Cheek, Fillet, Seabass certainly did not disappoint. We will undoubtedly return and can only urge local people to visit this classy restaurant and help to establish the brand. Deserts were also excellent with Taste Tatin, coffee Panna Cotta. What made all the dishes standout were the quality of the cooking imaginative combination of flavours.More
