The fish was better than expected and there is a peanut rum that was delicious. It is situated next to a lovely stream and you can sit outside.

How many bottles of the old soak does this man have? I tried as many as I could honest. I just couldn't get through them all. I need to go back for a whole week.

Poonkies is an off the beaten track place, but it is beautiful with stone features and big wooden tables cut from mango trees. It is about 5 minutes from Portsmouth and 10 minutes from Picard.
