We picked the Poachers Inn for our short honeymoon based on amenities and price, paying only £90 per night including breakfast and we really were not disappointed. The Queenie Suite was cosy and had all the amenities you might want. Sarah, the landlady was absolutely lovely and made us very welcome. The food was well thought out, not overly pretentious,...

Good location if you are a walker and the hotel offers good accomedation and food for a resanable price. The area is very beutiful and there are a lot of tracks for walkers and distances between 6 Miles up to 10 Miles

We booked a room at the Poachers using their Dinner Bed and Breakfast package. The accommodation was lovely. Very clean with all mod cons. The food in the restaurant was excellent - good service and a wonderful atmosphere

We have stayed here twice recently and on both occasions have enjoyed our stay and will return. Both rooms (7 & 14) were clean and the beds very comfortable. Due to other commitments we did not have any meals here other than breakfast. The Breakfasts are very good with an excellent choice of fruit juices, cereals and yoghurts at a... More

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
