I keep saying that I will never go to a restaurant if I see it is empty, but I keep doing it and so I never learn. The Poacher is in my opinion a place to avoid. The ambiance is that of a place where seedy people go to as that would be the only place where they are tolerated.... More

Disgusting attitude by staff against a gay couple we were with. Not a place to go if you celebrate the wonderful diversity of race, ethnicity, sexuality and more that our wonderful Rainbow Nation has to offer. This is however the only pub in the town, so if you do not fit strict stereotypes of white, heterosexual, middle class, I would... More

I've been there twice now a year apart and both times the food was average at best. Prices not bad, but wouldn't pay those prices for the food received. Service was good, atmosphere was good, but that doesn't make up for the food. Also it was fairly cold and one of our members ordered a coffee, only to be informed... More

When passing Dullstroom, we stop at the poucher for lunch. It was very quiet at that stage and we was the only two people in the whole restaurant. I've ordered The Poucher Burger and my husband a Beef Curry. My husband thought this was one of the best curries he has ever eaten and my gourmet burger was very tasty.... More
