About The Poacher's Pocket
Traditional British Cuisine
Always excellent food & service
Great food and very helpful staff.
An excellent meal, extensive menu served by friendly informed and efficient staff. A delightful evening.
I would definitely return and have already recommended it to several friends and colleagues. Thank you for an excellent meal with warm and friendly service.
Good food and fast, efficient service. Thanks, we'll be back soon.
The sharing platter was lovely however would prefer the previous one. Last time there were prawns and chicken wings. These were replaced by ham dishes
Absolutely fabulous as usual one of the best eateries around.
Great food from an imaginative menu, delightfully served by Laura, who is an asset to the restaurant.
County Down's hidden jewel has an inability to disappoint. Top tier Northern Irish cuisine.
Excellent service, delicious food good atmosphere.
Excellent all round as usual!
Simply the best Already look forward to our next visit 😋
Excellent food and service as always.
A family group of 12 of us had Sunday lunch at the Poacher's Pocket last week. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Everyone enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Horrendous service from an extremely offensive waitress. Informed that we only serve Tennants beer in the restaurant and tried to actually physically block me when I asked could I see the bar range ( been before and know they serve more than one beer) Then she was extremely rude to actually ignorant in her behaviour to international guests within the party. She continued to try and stare out our guests when we asked for her to be removed from the service on table. Food was average at the very best and then after finishing the main course the staff served the side dishes that were meant to be with the meal. If it hadn’t been so embarrassing for the foreign guests it would have been an episode of Fawlty Towers. Thankfully the managerial team were professional and dealt well with the aftermath and this went someway to relieving the embarrassment of the foreign guests. They did personally apologise to those effected for the treatment they had received. Would we bring anyone back...Not until the staff member is either retained or relocated. Although I must say was very impressed by the management.
Service and atmosphere were very good, if not excellent. The menu was great and generally, the food was tasty. However, the chef was a little heavy-handed with the salt. Both my squid starter and salmon main were very salty. My partner’s peppercorn sauce (accompanying a lovely steak) was almost inedible, due to the level of salt. Otherwise, we enjoyed our meal and would return. 4 stars out of 5.
Tasty food & great service
We had a lovely meal for my mum's 80th birthday. Service was great and lovely waitress sang happy birthday! The only criticism is that my partners brill was slightly undercooked but he didn't want to make a fuss. We will definitely be back
Un très grand MERCI de l’accueil chaleureux et authentique. « A night to remember ! » La prochaine fois que nous serons dans le pays, ce sera un passage obligé !
My fav restaurant outside Belfast 😋
Our favourite place for Sunday lunch. Roast beef was perfection! Only slightly negative would be that it was very warm in the restaurant even with the doors open. Not much you can do about that though unless you get air con ?
Everything about The Poachers Pocket is fantastic. Have eaten here a few times and each time is the same..... delicious food and attentive, friendly staff.
Food was excellent. Staff were friendly and helpful. Level of service was quite poor - table not cleared between courses, slow service, extra glasses and cutlery not cleared. It was a very hot, busy Sunday, so maybe this explains it.
Great food and service. Would definitely recommend the Poachers Pocket to friends and family.
Delicious , well presented food , excellent service and lovely cosy atmosphere. It’s also a bonus to have excellent parking beside the restaurant.
