Not a pub so shouldn't be on this site! Booked a Sunday lunch with friends and turned up at 12:05 but at 12:10 we were still standing in the cold because they couldn't be bothered to open the doors despite advertising a 12:00 start. Won't visit again because if that is indicative of their customer service I'd rather be somewhere that cares!

I recently visited this pub with some friends, ( sorry restaurant ) you cannot call the Poacher pub.
When I ordered a pint, it came with a head over an inch thick, when I asked for it to be topped up, the chap behind the bar said the was the landlords perks, and told his staff not to fill it up, I accepted the pint as I did not whon't to make a fuss as my friends had not yet arrived.
We decided not to have starters and ordered your main meals, what a mistake that was, as the main meals would not feed a dormouse, and was not was discribed on the menu.
If you expept to be fed when you dine out, then I would not recommend you go to the Poacher.

I've been here quite a bit; latest visit was in October 2010 for a midweek lunch.

The Poacher isn't really a pub at all, it's a restaurant which serves drinks. The interior is smart and glitzy, and though there is a bar you can sit at, most of the space is given over to tables for eating.

I had a decent bowl of game stew with dumplings and a couple of perfectly OK pints. The staff were friendly and efficient. It's all fine but it's not a place where I would ever go with a mate for a few beers. It's somewhere to take your mum for Sunday lunch, or to take a girl who doesn't really like pubs. It's all very clean and smart and characterless.

Had more names than Elizabeth Taylor but still known locally as the Red Cow.
Large pub .. large car park .. little appeal

Tremendously up and down, this one.
My wife reports a delicious meal and wine this month (October 2009). But me myself I wouldn't got there: it's not a proper pub (too girly) and there are much better options - esp the Dovecot at Capel, and as of this month, the George and Dragon up the road.
