We couldn't fault Poachers Pantry as a wedding venue. The location is lovely and offers the opportunity to have the ceremony and reception in the same place. The food and wine was excellent and the service was impeccable - the staff were incredibly friendly and were flexible and accommodating throughout the entire process.

Poachers Pantry was an absolutely stunning location for our wedding. The tree was magical on the day and kept us surprisingly comfortable in the 39 degree heat! The grounds are so well looked after and our photographs have turned out amazing. Our wedding manager, Perri, was lovely to work with and very professional. She was quick to respond to questions and was keen to help us create the wedding we wanted. She is very experienced and was able to offer a lot of advice around the running of the day. Not all was smooth on the day, unfortunately they were understaffed, which had a bit of an impact on the running of the night and the cleanliness of the Marquee, but overall they should be congratulated on how well they managed. We would highly recommend Poacher's Pantry to other couples!

As soon as we walked through Poachers Pantry, we knew that it was the perfect venue for us. The team, lead by Tarli, went above and beyond to make our day perfect. They made our vision a reality, and this is no small feat in the middle of a pandamic. All of guests gave nothing but wonderful feedback, and the food and drinks were spectacular. Do yourself a favour, go check them out, you will not be disappointed

Poachers Pantry is a beautiful wedding venue! Their food and wine was devine and the wedding/events manager, Tarli, is AMAZING at this job, his service was absolutely top notch.

Amazing venue and staff. Our dream wedding was to have in the outdoors and we got just the right weather before we were hit with a rainstorm just hours after the reception finished. The food options are amazing and memories for a life time.

Poacher's Pantry was the perfect, most accommodating venue for our wedding, we are so glad we chose to have our wedding with them. We absolutely recommend them as a wedding venue!! We moved our wedding date 3 times due to COVID-19 and we settled on a wedding that was a third of the original wedding size and Poacher's were very accommodating the whole time. Tarli the wedding planner there was so helpful and flexible, it was a pleasure to plan our wedding with him. The food at the wedding was delicious and beautifully presented - all our guests loved the food. They catered to all dietary requirements. The vegan, vegetarian, dairy-free and gluten free options were amazing (beautiful and delicious). The venue was also beautiful for the day- the grounds were beautifully kept and the staff were really nice. Perfect venue!

Amazing! The events manager made everything so seamless. The day went by so perfectly and every single request I made was met and exceeded. The team was great on the day. We had both the ceremony and the reception at the same place which made it enjoyable for us as a couple. They helped organise a bus and they were so helpful with recommending suppliers to us. The food was delicious and every single person raved about the meal - we had canapés, main and dessert.

The team at Poachers Pantry did a wonderful job at making our dream day come true. The food and specialised cocktail bar where a huge hit with the guests. Marcel was so easy to deal with and very responsive, taking a lot of the stress out of confirming the final details.

Could not have imagined a better venue. Tarli the wedding manager was a dream to work with, super accommodating and friendly! No request was too hard! We even had a big glitch just before the wedding and Tarli fixed it up for us no problem! Above and beyond. Our wedding was in Sept 2019 (yeah, we suck at reviewing!) and our guests still talk about the wedding and the food. The food, wine and beer were the best they had had at any wedding. The service was so smooth and basically we could not rave enough about how Poachers is the perfect place where you can make your wedding your own on a stunning property with 👌🏼 management.

Poachers Pantry is such a beautiful venue, it was everything that I pictured. The staff were very helpful and we felt totally welcomed. Unfortunately we did experience some communication issues as there was an event planner staff change, and some details were left out which meant that out marquee set up was different to expected. However our day was magical and the everyone did everything they could to make it perfect!

The property was perfect, so amazed by the ceremony under their stunning golden elm tree, the restaurant was done up very nice for the reception and the food was amazing. Only had a few hiccups, they were late setting up for the reception to we had to wait to get the reception going and they went through 4 different wedding managers in the time I was organising my wedding, which did make it a bit frustrating. But all in all everyone had a great night.

Poachers were great - they have the whole wedding process down to a T. We held the ceremony under the beautiful golden elm tree before moving to the marquee for the reception. We received so many compliments on the beauty of the venue, the delicious food, and the professional staff. It was a perfect day!

Perfect! Marquee style weddings. Our fairy tale came true, with the help of Matt. Communication was outstanding and every single wish was granted.

I would recommend Poachers to people for fantastic food and great service. We had a few seating and set up challenges, but the team managed to keep it from the guests thankfully. The prior attention to detail and service from staff was outstanding, and they made the wedding day planning easy for us. A perfect location for a Spring wedding.

A beautiful place to hold both your ceremony and reception. The events team are lovely and extremely helpful. We hired their marquee for our wedding and it was just perfect! The food was incredible, wait staff were efficient. Couldn't say a single bad thing about the place. Very professional and experienced wedding venue!

The staff at Poachers Pantry were amazing. Annika was always available to talk through any questions, catered to all our needs and decoration details and ensured it was a stress free process. Poachers is not only a beautiful location, but has great food and ambiance for a perfect reception.

This place was the first place we looked at when choosing the venue. We didn't look any further. It was the perfect backdrop for our special day from the ceremony under the beautiful tree to photography scenes in and around the property, reception layout and delicious food. It was exactly the relaxed atmosphere and country feel we were after.

A lovely country venue just outside of Canberra, Poachers Pantry looked after us and our guest wonderfully. We got to have the ceremony outside under a beautiful golden oak tree, then move inside for the meals, then push the tables aside for a good dance - it was great!

Poachers Pantry put on a delicious spread for our wedding dinner, with big hearty meals all round. I particularly liked the way guests could choose from a selection of three dishes, which meant they could get something they actually wanted to eat!
