We had a family Sunday lunch at The Poacher. The Carvery was was "better than average", but not sure it really hit "Very Good". Sunday lunch, but only the Carvery was on offer, a choice of roast beef and/or turkey. The beef was apparently done to perfection for our group, but too rare for some on nearby tables that wanted...

Very quiet but lovely setting. Fantastic roaring fire. It's a small menu but a good range. Even on a backboard mid week. My husband had pork belly with an unbelievably gorgeous mash from the main menu. I had the burger(which I never normally order) of the blackboard because all the other dishes came with mash,which I don't like because it's... More

Despite a poor recent review - we found the Landford Poacher ideal for our needs. In this case a Wednesday pub lunch. It is convenient, there is ample parking and we were made very welcome - neither rushed or neglected. The drinks were good and moderately priced and the Braised beef was excellent in presentation, taste and "fillingness". The blazing... More

Ate here at 7pm on a Thursday evening, we were the only ones in there all night. Before we could get through the door properly the bar man asked us what we wanted to drink, we hadn't had time to even think. We were asked if we were eating and menus were taken over to a table for us. Before... More

I visited the Landford Poacher a few weeks ago with a group of friends. We really enjoyed our visit. The food was delicious and piping hot, the vegetables were plentiful and varied and the service was really friendly and supportive to some of the older members of our group. There was a Carvery and the food was perfectly cooked. I... More

We stopped at The Landford Poacher for a bite to eat on our way home after a long journey. There were plenty of tables available, so we were seated quite quickly and our order was taken promptly. The food was nice, especially the garlic mushrooms to start. However, it was nothing out of the ordinary, but was reasonable pub-grub.
