Really average food. The service was slow but mostly because they were understaffed so our poor server was so busy but still very friendly and helpful. If you're just wanting to have a drink, I'd say yes, but there are definitely better places to get a bite to eat.

A gang of us tried the Poacher after a game at Highland Park. We were well impressed with are selection and I personally found the Steak & Ale pie not only wholesome but truly delicious. An idea spot after golf. Can thoroughly recommend .

I have recently been to Dullstroom for the first time and visited Poacher for a family lunch. Being seated at a dirty table with empty beer kegs everywhere we decided to just have a drink and a starter. The kitchens grills smoke was everywhere, so the ventilation obviously doesn't work! After waiting longer than an hour for our STARTERS, the... More

What a great meal. The portions were of a good size and the Cordon Bleau was very tasty. Trinchado was a little small but the chicken livers were very good. Nice waiters and the food didn't take too long. The beef and Guiness pie was amazing as was the chicken and mushroom. I missed out on the smoked trout salad... More

Your typical bar, but had a great evening/dinner. Butternut soup was amazing, pleasantly surprised, ribs & chips was great. Great place if you want a bar/pub feel, outside would be great on a nice hot day.

Always impressed when on a second visit the barmen know what your favourite tipple is. It is the sign of staff that care and it makes a traveller immediately feel at home. Thanks
