We have just stayed three nights at The Poachers Inn. We were allocated Room 12 an executive room which was very roomy and clean but being directly over the kitchen an outside extractor fan was running from about 8.30 in the morning and went off at 9.30 in the evening and the noise was slightly irritating. The restaurant was dark... More

Have eaten here twice now, it is really excellent. No microwave or fast food in sight! We can't recommend it highly enough. Prices are reasonable, but don't expect your meal to be served within 5 minutes, always a good sign to me. Really lovely area of England too.

The staff here are really friendly and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. The food is amazing! All freshly prepared using local suppliers which are named on the menus. We stayed with our two dogs. It is really dog friendly but if you are not keen on dogs you don't have to be anywhere near them. Dogs not allowed... More

Our room was clean but very tired, dated & cramped with large cigarette burns in the middle of the carpet (all no smoking rooms), accessed up metal fire escape stairs. Checked in around 9pm & was very disappointed with the room. We then read through the hotel information to find the rooms have no internet access at all & that... More

Really enjoyed our stay at The Poachers Inn. Good food, good drink, good accommodation. A great base for exploring nearby towns and sights; with ample parking. If you're staying a busy period and intend to have dinner at the inn, its a good bet to book early (perhaps after chomping through a well cooked full English!)

I arrived at this hotel to check in 2 days after I had been camping in the New Forest so I was in rather a shabby state when I arrived. I am not sure whether this contributed to the rather "cool" welcome when i arrived. I stood at the bar and watched the landlady serve everyone she could before turning... More

Stayed for one night finding the hotel quite excellent with one or two minor irritations. How ever many flies we swatted there was always a couple more in the no 12 bedroom, the room was immaculate but oddly the shower needed a good scrub, and the evening meals were rather uninteresting and cooked without particular care. However the breakfast (presumably... More

Stayed for one night to break up the drive from London to Cornwall and see some local sights. The room was modern and tastefully decorated. The staff quickly made up a single mattress bed when it became apparent I had not booked correctly :) Quite impressed. The pool was a nice touch, very nice after a drive and some hill... More

We stayed for 1 night on a stop over to visit family. We had a suite which was very well decorated and exceptionally comfortable. The staff were friendly and the food was excellent. Will definitely be going back.

We only stayed here for one night and got a last minute deal. This is a place with a lot of character and the young, friendly staff were welcoming and made you feel at home. Our room was large and well equipped but was unfortunately above the kitchen which meant we were affected by a huge extractor fan positioned on... More
