Haven't visited the pub for some years, friendly welcome, good choice of food available at reasonable price. Food was good and served promptly, only gripe was desert, I ordered the deserts and after 30 minutes they hadn't arrived, so went to chase them u,p and found the order hadn't been placed due to a computer glitch between bar and kitchen. We were then told that due to a freezer problem some deserts weren't available , but we were refunded the cost of all of them and offered alternatives free of charge to compensate for our wait, which was a nice gesture. Would still go back again., as this was only a minor problem.

Good food and friendly staff. It is good that one can reserve tables at the Poachers Cottage. Hopefully this pub will not become part of a chain which so often sees a reduction in food quality as has happened at a nearby pub.

Excellent service & very accommodating. We arrived just as the restaurant was opening at 10:55am. Excellent communication between front counter staff & kitchen to ensure we were served in time before our check in at Newcastle airport for 12 noon. Lovely food & will definitely use again.

Lovely meals, the 2 different 16oz steaks cooked exactly how was asked, the mixed grill was also huge, other 2 meals were just as good, all of us had the meals with chips which were very hot and homemade. Would recommend to anyone and best steak and mixed grill in ages

A joke from the moment we walked in to the end. Someone clearly didn't read the notes via the online reservation in regards to a high chair as they put a table which we couldn't even get to with the pram. This is due to so many tables and seats you have to walk sideways between them all. We had to search for food menus as there weren't any. We ordered at 1.20pm and our mains arrived an hour later. My meal however was returned four times as it was completely wrong, cooked wrong and then had part of it missing. I won't be coming back.

Myself and my two daughters went for our lunch on a Thursday. The staff were very helpful and friendly and our meal was tasty . This pub gets quite busy even mid week so they are obviously doing something right.
