Ordered a mixed grill and the only food that was grilled was the steak. Everything else was just oven cooked. Better places to go.

Food acceptable but server was really miserable, when asked a question he was abrupt and offhand. Wont be back in a hurry.

As Lincslass18 pointed out the place is appalling and needs a good clean. The seats where we had to sit were dirty and the whole place looked neglected. The manager must have no idea how to run a successful establishment. The shame of this place...More

Table service excellent. The vegetable lasagne was as I would expect of very cheap pub food and was nothing more than edible. Waiter was very accommodating. Shame as my first visit and I had expected better.

If you want decent, hot food at a reasonable price, then the Poachers is a safe bet. We had an impromptu visit here yesterday and enjoyed our meals. I had breaded mushrooms to start and they were piping hot and nice and crispy. My husband...More

An old Farmhouse that the main part of the building dates back to 1817. Open from 11am daily with food being served from 11.30. Large restaurant area with space for large parties of up to 50 people able to sit in the same section. Fantastic outdoor seating area with fairy lighting and outdoor log burner for those cool evenings.
