We hadn't been to the Poachers for ages but gave it a try last Sunday. Wow ! It's as good as ever and great value. We both had Chowder to start. It was very rich but excellent. For mains we both had the crab claws. Really really good. Lovely friendly staff and very good value. Keep it up Poachers

Visited the poachers inn today for the first time but definitely not our last. Food was excellent. Big portions and great value at €22 for 2 courses. Very friendly staff and nice decor. Looking forward to returning soon.

A local business recommended this restaurant but warned it could be busy. We were lucky and got a table. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We each got a fabulous main course and the desserts were superb.! We will certainly return there again and again.!

Excellent, I have been to a number of Cooking Demonstrations but this surpassed all it was a fantastic afternoon. Barry and Katherine felt like good friends at the end of it. The course itself was excellent the recipes and demonstrations, I can't wait to cook them next week. Loved that Barry took questions all throughout the entire demonstration. Please don't... More
