    What an amazing place. The gardens and service are excellent. The best smoked foods in Australia and an unforgettable dining experience. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

    A lovely Friday afternoon sitting on the deck eating the four course tasting menu paired with wines. The only thing I’d “criticise” is the need for more shade on the deck. It got quite hot as could have benefited with a bit more shade.

    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.

    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.

    Beautiful location and gardens which gave the children the space they needed to enjoy themselves. The platters were delicious! Wine was great. Staff were very friendly and helpful! We had a lovely family time there!

    Excellent food showcasing Poacher's Pantry and local produce, as well as local wines on the menu, in a lovely garden/farm setting.

    Lovely setting and delicious brunch. The service is a bit slow (had to ask a few times for our bill, took a while for anyone to come by to take coffee orders) but overall really nice! We will be back.

    Poachers Pantry is our favourite and special place to go and eat, often for family occasions. Service, food and location make us enjoy coming to Poachers Pantry as often as we can.

    Entree serving is reasonable however main course lamb rack is very small serving. Also misleading information on website where it says truffle on the menu on 11/8 but actually it was not available. We drove 2.5hrs from Sydney thinking could try truffle menu.Quite disappointed

About the restaurant

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
