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.
