Overview

Poachers Pantry is nestled in the hills just 30 minutes from Canberra’s CBD. It is a business built around the love of good food and wine and sharing it with family and friends. Located on a rural property, its artisan smokehouse and cool climate vineyard are showcased in its contemporary restaurant, cellar door and farm shop.

The restaurant serves a three-course set menu Friday - Sunday with a Poachers Vineyard wine pairing option - alternatively select the wines by the glass or bottle. Its range of smoked meats is available from its walk-in pantry - buy the smoked duck breast – a Sydney Royal Show Champion – and a bottle of the Poachers Pinot Noir for the ultimate culinary souvenir. In summer, the terrace is a lovely spot to enjoy a Poachers picnic and a glass of wine. In winter the log fire is the place to enjoy a slow-cooked dish with a glass of Shiraz.

Ideally located close to the vineyards of Murrumbateman, it is the perfect place to have lunch while exploring the wine district.

TripAdvisor ratingReviewed 3w ago by laurelw144

We recently had a family brunch at Poachers Pantry. All three breakfasts were delivered cold, with rubbery bacon and basically inedible. We were extremely disappointed.
