Food is always very good, portions are huge and prices very reasonable. Service very good - staff are polite, friendly and helpful. Covid distancing and hygiene done well. Only slight complaint (to be honest more an observation than a complaint) is that Poachers is always a little on the cool side - perhaps sometimes nerd to turn the heating up - even if it is summer!

Service, food and value for money was exceptional as always. I did think this visit lacked atmosphere. Only a suggestion but maybe a little background music would be a nice touch. Not too loud so that you can still talk and be heard.

I had Roast beef dinner. Potato wasn’t great and gravy was on the dinner. I would prefer it separate in a boat to allow myself to choose how much. Could have done with a bit more. Great system ongoing due to COVID 19 but were sitting near exit door and every time someone went out my husband had to get up to close it!!!

Food still took 50 minutes to come as normal even though there were half the people in. Food was absolutely beautiful as usual so well worth the wait. My favourite place to eat.
