Come and try the incredible restaurant and range of gourmet smoked meats produced on site at the Poachers Pantry Smokehouse.

Poachers Pantry is 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 cool climate vineyard and artisan smokehouse are showcased in its contemporary restaurant, cellar door and farm shop.

The cellar door offers tastings of its range of estate-grown cool climate wines. Splash tastings are complimentary, and for a more immersive experience, tutored tastings of six wines can be enjoyed at a table for $15.

The restaurant serves a two and three-course menu from Thursday to Sunday with a Poachers Vineyard wine pairing option. Its range of smoked meats is available from the walk-in pantry. Buy the smoked duck breast – a Sydney Royal Show Champion – and a Poachers Vineyard Pinot Noir (awarded Best Pinot in NSW at the 2022 NSW Wines Awards) for the ultimate culinary souvenir.

The terrace is a lovely spot in summer to enjoy a meal and a glass of wine. In winter, the open log fire crafted out of blue stone 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.
