Poachers Pantry Smokehouse Restaurant and Vineyard
Poachers Pantry is a nestled in the hills just 30 minutes from Canberra’s central business district. It is a family business that started in 1991, built around the love of good food and wine, and sharing 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 two and three-course menu Friday to 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 the walk-in pantry. Buy the smoked duck breast – a Sydney Royal Show Champion – and a bottle of the Poachers Vineyard Pinot Noir (awarded Best Pinot in NSW at the 2022 NSW Wines Awards) for the ultimate culinary souvenir.
In summer, the terrace is a lovely spot to enjoy a Poachers Smokehouse and a glass of wine. In winter the open log fire crafted out of blue stone sourced on the property is the place to enjoy a slow-cooked dish with a glass of estate grown shiraz.
Ideally located close to the vineyards of Murrumbateman, it is the perfect place to have lunch while exploring the wine district.
