New owners, can’t fault it really. Turned up out of the blue with 20 others on charity cycle ride and they were very accommodating.

Had a very special birthday Sunday meal at Poachers Pocket. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The pub is on the beach so great sea views (look out for the seals!). They have sea view chalets that I would love to stay in and we are looking forward to trying the rest of the menu and daily specials. Thank you for a great day!

Good Meals Popped into the Poachers Pocket twice for a meal during our stay in Walcott in Jan and both times could not fault the food and service. Because of the time of year the pub was nearly empty (we went around 2.00pm) but the barlady was chatty and friendly both times and the menu was very extensive for the amount of customers they will be getting for the time of year. The food was both hot and tasty we could not fault anything and would deff go back. I would imagine in the height of summer this place will be really busy..will deff go back.

Incredible food & perfection service I wouldn’t normally bother to write a review but this place is amazing,wrote two reviews so far.The owners are welcoming and Mandy is ahead of the game in the level of service throughout, I do however have to give a special recognition to their Chef(sorry I should have asked your name) his food is way up there with the best food I have ever tried, my Beef Burger was amazing so special, and had few drinks. Thank you poachers pocket team and see you soon

Brilliant location. Great service. Amazing food. We’d often called in here on a long walk. The benches outside are a great spot to enjoy the view of sand, sea and sky.This time (New Year’s Day), it was a bit too cold to sit out, so we headed indoors.It was very busy and all the tables were taken. I asked if there was room upstairs and the friendly man at bar said that wasn’t a problem – even though it wasn’t ‘officially’ open up there.We were speedily shown to a table and brought drinks. Then a very cheerful and helpful gentleman by the name of Alex took us through all the various veggie options from the menu and the day’s specials. We ended up plumping for the butternut squash couscous. It looked spectacular – and it tasted absolutely amazing. It was packed with fantastic flavours – and perfectly cooked. After we’d cleared our plates, Alex told us he was the chef. This guy is a real asset to the Poacher’s Pocket.We’re already looking forward to going back the next time we’re in the area.

AMAZING STAFF, FOOD & ATMOSPHERE This pub made our week holiday, all the staff are so friendly- they even entertained and looked after our baby while we ate every single night. Food was unbelievable, every meal was made to such a high standard. Drink prices are the same as every pub nowadays. The New Year’s Eve party was so much fun- plenty variety of different drinks and shots! Can’t wait to return again, next time we’ll be staying in their accommodation.

Amazing stay Arrived here on New Years Eve, the host was incredibly friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble, there was a New Years Eve party that we were made very welcome at and the locals were super friendly. The chalet was perfect, really cosy with plenty of complimentary toiletries. Very clean. The food was amazing and the breakfast was worth every penny. Will definitely be coming back and would highly recommend.
