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

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.

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

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 ?

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.
