Occupying an enchanting location opposite a beautiful Norman church, Poacher’s Brasserie is a must-visit for relaxed dining. With seasonal menus showcasing modern British and Mediterranean-inspired cuisine, there’s something for everyone.
While the dishes are beautifully presented, no fuss or frills get in the way of the flavours of the ingredients, which speak for themselves. To truly get a feel for the chef’s specialities, opt for the tasting menu comprising two starters, two mains, one dessert and coffee for just £30. Expect the likes of pigeon with red wine reduction, dolcelatte and crispy pancetta, and sea scallops with parsnips, lemon powder and berry gel to start. You’ll find mains such as loin of venison enhanced by chocolate and coffee sauce and served with celeriac mash. A selection of pizzas are available to eat in or take away, and a range of grilled 28-day-aged steaks can be enjoyed with a choice of Stilton or pepper sauce and accompanied by fries, wild mushrooms, spinach and dressed salad.
A selection of Italian and English cheese is the perfect after-dinner treat, while salted caramel crème brûlée with ginger shortbread is an irresistible option for sweet-toothed diners. Popular themed nights include Italian evening on Wednesdays and pizza night on Thursdays. Visit Poacher’s Brasserie for a warm welcome and a memorable dining experience.
