We had our wedding here in January 2014. Amazing venue, food and wine! But special mention must go to the incredible staff who made planning and the big day itself so special for us. It doesn't matter whether we visit for lunch, dinner, or even just a coffee, we always receive the warmest welcome and incredible service from the Poacher's... More

I had been to Poachers Pantry a few years ago for a wedding and it was the best wedding food I'd ever had! Our visit for lunch was also very good. My husband had the smoked chicken pie which was AMAZING! I had the smoked lamb which was beautifully smoked, but the dish although very very good, could also have... More

Poacher's Pantry is a specialist providore of fine organic produce including smoked fish, a variety of meats, hams, prosciutto, cheeses and eggs. Not cheap -- but very good value. It is located down a winding bitumen and dirt road a few kilometres from Hall ( near Canberra). In addition to the restaurant attached to the business, there is an associated... More

Had lunch here on the way to our guesthouse. It was nearly closing time but the waitresses were relaxed and helpful. We all shared entrees rather than have a full on meal given it was close to 2.30. The service was quick & the food was nicely presented and tasty. Think the mains were a bit pricey but we didn't... More

Definitely worth the drive from Canberra. There were three of us so we decided to have 6 entrees and hopefully get to enjoy dessert as well. The plan worked! The besan flower pizza was a standout, followed by the panko crumbed artichokes and beautiful bresaola. The desserts were fantastic. I had the white chocolate pudding which was yum. We were... More

Eating in Canberra can be hit and miss, so the opportunity to get out of the city and eat somewhere with a good reputation was one I couldn't miss Poachers Pantry is a rustic little hideaway about 20 minutes, a dirt road and some friendly sheep away from the city. It doubles as a store filled with chocolate, jams and... More

A bit pretentious and overpriced but had a good time. Was there for a birthday which went without a hitch. The food was tasty but not really anything to write home about. Seems to be aimed at the "Gastro set" who are willing to pay anything for regional/specialities such as locally smoked meats. Was a nice drive out but would... More
