Favourite bar in Dullies

From the friendly people (a friend once left a phone only for us to return the next day and they had kept it!), to the ice cold tap beers and the delicious food - this is one of my favourite eat outs in Dullstroom. The snack basket is an absolute winner. Leave behind the knife and fork and get... read more

The Poacher is really the most lovely place in Dullstroom. Best food we got so far in this town and great service. After we ate, we sat at the bar. The Manager/Barman is really (short and sweet) awsome. He is the DJ also. Damn, he can play great music aswell. I have been to Poacher before, and never have I... More

While I can understand the Poacher is the place where local put their feet up - I truly feel that this institution needs a thorough health inspection. We made a turn there on a Friday evening after dinner at another establishment and made sure it was a short stay. The venue looks and smells dirty and somewhat seedy. It's well-stocked... More

I was absolutely surprised to find such a variety of beer on tap in a small town like Dullstroom. Although we haven't had anything to eat the menu caters for range of preferences. The toilet facilities however can do with a makeover. But the beer is great.

The biggest disappointment ever. The food took sooooo long to come to the table. The beef trinchado looked like it was minute steaks cooked in bisto. The pork ribs were alright. The chicken livers, I ordered HOT, was bland, actually bland would be a compliment. The poacher baskets were burnt crap.

If you're looking for fancy, quiet and romantic don't come here! If you want to eat, drink, smoke indoors near a warm fire, dance and generally be welcomed as a local, The Poacher is the place. We went twice for dinner, all good especially the lamb and mint pie, salad pita not so great (good concept though).

We went in here for brunch and the quality of food and service was disappointing. The service intended to be attentive but there were too many people and not enough waiters, so we were the ones who did the waiting. When the food came it was actually not very nice. My partner's chicken burger was covered by a brown salty... More
