Wanted a nice pub lunch so off to the Poachers Arms. Menu very limited no pub favourites ie pies. Settled on a bowl of soup and a veal sandwich both mediocre. No one in the place Isee why.

I met friends on a Saturday night for drinks. After sitting at my table for over half hour I decided to get my own drink at the bar. The bar was very slow as well and cash only.

Food took another 30 minutes. We... More

Went there twice with friends. Absolutely enjoyed the food and beers, customer service was amazing too. It's a nice pub for casual gatherings. I think they have karaoke and pool tables too!
