We got married at Poachers Pantry - it was a beautiful venue. We visited again on our 10 year wedding anniversary for lunch. The service, food and atmosphere is amazing and we can't wait to go back again!

Was okay. Pretty nice outlook for Lunch, food ok but not quite worth the price. Service alternated between attentive and non-existent, but the staff are great when they’re doing something. It’s good when it’s good, but lacking something when they’re a bit off. Still worth the visit and decide for yourself.

Very nice food and flavours on a reasonable serving size in a great atmosphere. Wait staff were very friendly but there didn’t seem to be enough to cater to the needs of the room. They were very competent and constantly on their feet but this does effect customer service overall.

Well presented and tasty food complimented by the local wine. Backed up with friendly and efficient service, makes this a good place to catch up with friends or have a relaxing afternoon!

The charcuterie platters are absolutely amazing! They do have degustation options as well as alacarte- you can have any option you feel like with the most amazing atmosphere. So relaxing eating and drinking in the sun listening to birds sing. Must go venue.

The food (duck and sirloin) were delicious. Truffle is always a nice touch. The pinot was nice however the wily trout shiraz nouveau wasn't to the same standard. Given the pantry is in the Murrumbateman region it would have been a good idea to pair wine from the region as there are some lovely wines and it supports the winemakers.

About Poachers Pantry

Are you achin’ for some bacon? If so, look no more! Located on the outskirts of Canberra, you will find the home to gourmet, smoked meats. Wily Trout vineyard is renowned for many things, from their cold climate shiraz and rieslings, to their rustic weatherboard farmhouse, but most importantly for Poachers Pantry Smokehouse. The family owned grazing property has now become the perfect spot for a relaxed, country interlude, full of smokey goodness! With everything smoked on-site, share a Farmhouse charcuterie board with your special someone or bring the family because there is plenty of room to move around. We should warn you though, make sure you leave room for the sweet stuff because the Crème brûlée with cherry sorbet is something special! Best Dish: Smoked duck breast
