Our Story

Our small family business, started over 25 years ago, has been built around our love of good food and sharing with family and friends. From simple beginnings as an artisan smokehouse, we have grown to include the Smokehouse Restaurant, the Wily Trout Vineyard, farm shop, cellar door, country wedding and event destination.

Weddings & Events

Poachers Pantry is a simply perfect country location for weddings and events. From canapes on the Homestead lawn, to a special dinner in the Kitchen Garden, a Gala event in the marquee or an intimate reception in the restaurant. We can provide a personalised occasion in a stunning rural location, that all will remember.

Our Smokehouse Restaurant is open 7 days a week including Brunch on the weekends. Check out the menu or book online today!

Our Wines

The Wily Trout Vineyard straddles the north east facing slopes of the granite hills that lie in the heart of the Murrumbateman and Canberra Wine Region. It is renowned for its soft, peppery shiraz and elegant aromatic white varieties. Now in the hands of the second generation, Will Bruce.
