First visit since the renovations and very pleased with the changes. Six of us sat inside and the service was great. We shared the Citrus cured ocean trout and kangaroo prosciutto entrees which were quite small but delicious. Paired with the Wiley Trout Rose it...More

Disappointed to be on the end of a few sold out items, despite having an early reservation and restaurant not being particularly busy. Trout starter was delicious, Duck was underwhelming, Steak was fair, Chicken average. For those looking for a hearty, filling meal should consider...More

We have been travelling a bit and visited several wineries in SA and NSW, stopped here at lunchtime. Not a wine expert but they seemed ok, the food was a bit disappointing. We chose the smoked meat platter to share and the cheese one. Meat...More

Myself and some friends were visiting wineries and Murrumbateman and wanted a convenient spot for lunch nearby. Poachers Pantry got the nod. The setting is spectacular with pristine gardens and a beautiful country feel. The restaurant seems to be a renovated home with seating inside...More

I'd heard so many good things about the Poacher's Pantry. The food -when it finally, finally, arrived was excellent. But an hour and a half between starters and mains was disappointing. I will give the PP the benefit of the doubt given that it was...More

The Poachers Pantry Smokehouse is crowded on weekends and deservedly so. The mains on the menu sounded and looked divine, but we were there for a very late lunch and opted for a charcuterie tasting platter and a breads and dips platter which made a...More

The setting, in rural NSW, 20 minutes from Canberra, was idyllic in a restaurant that created a lovely homestead backdrop with rural outlook. I was impressed with the noise baffles in the ceiling which meant you were able to have a decent conversation without shouting...More

Poacher’s Pantry, about 10km off the Barton Highway, is part of a working farm and vineyard. Pleasant spacious dining room with additional outside seating areas. Food offerings are basically sharing plates - we had three (charcuterie, seafood and vegetables), all of which were good. The...More
