Had a really excellent steak for a sensible price. It was done exactly as ordered (M-R) and the service was just right. The choice of ales was good too. A very good atmosphere as well.

We came here for tea on Saturday night and it was a great meal. Lots of choice and the quality was very high. The beer quality was great and some good variety at the pumps. A great selection on the special boards and the sharing pudding was a real highlight, a must have off the menu. All in all a... More

This is the fourth time that I have eaten here. The food has been wonderful every time and it is reasonably priced. It has a very wide menu and the service is superb.

It was a rather chilly Boxing Day, and we had just been on a lovely walk in the Bickerton Hills. We had booked table for 14 at the Bickerton Poacher and were looking forward to a homely, cheerful lunch. Our expectations were reached and more as we were greeted with "Merry Christmas!" and asked to order drinks while our table... More

We celebrated my wife's 60th birthday here, in the skittle alley, which we had pre-booked. So we had exclusive use of the whole room with the real wooden skittles in. We all had such fun playing skittles, and everyone joined in from the grandchildren to those over 60. The food from the carvery was excellent. Very well cooked. (Though there... More

We visited here yesterday and had a very nice afternoon meal, the food was good quality and was actually hot. The staff are friendly and it has some nice touches like open fires. Plenty of parking off road and noticed it has rooms as well, that will be good for Ange and Kev one Saturday night soon. Worth a visit... More

We popped in to the Bickerton Poacher one Monday lunchtime as we were passing. As you would expect on a quiet Monday a couple of weeks before Christmas it was quiet with very few diners. The menu was good and the food cooked to order. (We had to wait a while for our order to arrive but this wasn't a... More
