There didn't appear any other places (with patrons) open when I arrived tired and stressed on on a cold, rainy, misty evening. The non smoking dining area had one couple and wasn't very inspiring, but there was a warm fire and some locals in the (smoking) pub section. The waiter/barman Terence (I think his name was) recommended the Lamb pie.... More

We had dinner here. There was a variety to choose from on the menu. I had a bacon and chicken salad which was okay but the dressing for it was not great. My husband had beef lasagne that was large with lots of beef did not really resemble lasagne as we know it. The house red wine was adequate in... More

Small place with a pub like feel and plenty out doors siting benches - under the Dullstroom night sky. Fair service, average food at average prices. At around 9.00 in the evening, the lights get dimmed and the music goes up transforming the whole place into a club. A place where you will find most local youngsters having fun at.... More

I have eaten at many restaurants but the Poacher is certainly one of the best. The atmosphere is very casual and the Eisbein I had was the best I've ever had !. The pricing is very reasonable and the service great. Highly recommended !

The kiddies food (milkshakes & pastas) came quickly, leaving them to fill their hungry tummies and then proceed to play on the jungle gym and rather large lawn. The food was really of a good quality (pot pie & basket) - an enjoyable experience.

We had a nice lunch with family. The beef curry, and Alfred pasta were great hits! This was our third time eating here while driving through Dullstroom. We will be back! The kids also love a play area. The facilities do need a bit of TLC though!

Wife had vegetable soup that she raved about. I had chicken livers. Sauce was bland. Can't recommend that dish. Service good.

We had lunch at Poachers while we where in Dullstroom. The service was good and the food was ok. We ordered an item on the menu just to be told that they did not have it.
