Go for the whiskey selection

I haven't tried the food at the Poacher, I usually stop in with my husband for a whiskey and a real ale. Impressive whiskey selection. Several real ales.

This is a great pub, the beers, the whiskeys, the service are all excellent. But the food. It's like eating from a military kitchen - it's bland and overpriced.

I use “pub” to refer to a specific establishment, rather than a general type of establishment, for there are qualitative shades of meaning to this word for me: a “pub” is somewhere homey, quieter, relaxed whereas a “bar” is the kind of raucous place I tried to sneak into as a teenager. The Lincolnshire Poacher pub is the quintessential no-frills... More

Friends live just up the road to this great pub and even though there are numerous other pubs on Mansfield Road we never have reason to leave the poacher. Great selection of beer with a great atmosphere.

This pub is great! A Castle Rock pub so lots of choice of beer (3 milds for a start!). The food was great, the staff friendly. We were staying at The Park Inn up the road so very convenient. A favourite when visiting Nottingham.

Wonderful selection of beers in this Castle Rock Brewery pub. Decent range of single malts too. The clientele is mixed & along with the friendly staff this creates a nice atmosphere. There is an outdoor area at the back as well as a cosy snug. I've only eaten here once but the steak & black pudding pie was delicious &... More

If you would like a roast dinner with cold washed out lamb, a roasted yet raw half a carrot, 2 roast potatoes, a dump of something I think was supposed to be mashed potatoes, hot raw carrots and broccoli and a bit of parsnip and have £9 to waste then this is the place for you. On the plus side... More

I feel compelled to first say that the staff were friendly and efficient if not a little un-engaging. Since moving to Nottingham five years ago, fiends and colleagues have waxed lyrical about the food at The Lincolnshire Poacher, especially the Sunday Roast; I have to ask myself, why? The roast dinner was a disaster and quite frankly poor and a... More
