The Poacher is a lovely pub sadly poorly managed by the brewery. We have been through 3 landlords in the last three years each one leaving because unreasonable owners. Even more tragic is that the villagers of South Warnborough simply refuse to support this vital local enterprise. The tenancy is currently up for renewal after our latest landlady, who did everything in her power to attract people, and it is advertised as "a haven for local drinkers". Take it from me, it's not. There was a hard-core of around 8 or 9 people which is not enough to make this place profitable

28th of January, had a table booked for ten people. The greeting was nice and friendly, but sadly the food was not what we expected for the money being charged and especially being a supposed country pub .
Everyone in the party was so disappointed and even disgusted with the food and very poor service and as it was supposed to have been a very special birthday for an elderly lady made the day worse. I certainly will not use this venue ever again and certainly will not be recommending the venue to others.

Called in on way home for a bar meal after a Saturday on the south coast. Very surprised at the very high prices and limited, odd, selection of bar food. Not knowing anywhere else to go on to we stayed. Staff very helpful and friendly, good service, but high prices and poor value for money means we would not go again. Pub was virtually empty on a warm July Saturday evening, which seems to back up our feelings.

We were welcomed with a smile and very efficient service. The kids (both under 11) had their own choice of food, while there was plenty for us to mull over. I have a food intolerence; the waitress assured me that I could have one item removed and replaced with something else. No quibble.
The portions were plentiful, well presented and equally tasteful. All in, value for money. This is not bulk-bought / reheated food, hence not the cheapest pub food - but was not expensive either.
It was good to see people outside, inside and in the restaurant, not having been there for a while, it assured us.
Gladly recommend this place for families.

I have eaten in The Poacher twice for evening meals in the last two weeks and found the food to be of a very high Quality the Belly of Pork is not to be missed and was lovely last night I can also rate the accomodation as excellent with very comfortable beds and a good choice for breakfast. Ami and her staff are always happy to help no matter how trivial the request.
