The Food

The Smokehouse Restaurant is all about the meats we cure and smoke and the wines that come from our vineyard that grows on the hills that surround the restaurant. We use organic ingredients from our own kitchen garden; the herbs and vegetables are picked fresh every morning and delivered straight to the kitchen. Our menu is constantly changing so that we can use local ingredients that are at their best.


The restaurant is open daily.


Monday to Wednesday for our famous Smokehouse platters and light meals.


Thursday to Sunday we have our full A la Carte menu for lunch, with brunch served on Saturday and Sunday.

The Wine List

Our wine list is exclusively the Wily Trout wines that are grown on the hills that surround the restaurant. Our region is renowned for its cool climate wines due its location on the edge of the Brindabella mountain range. The delicate yet complex flavours of our wines are a result of the vineyard and the craftsmanship of our wine makers. When you dine at the restaurant feel free to come up to the bar for a complimentary tasting to find a wine that will match your meal perfectly.

The Terrace and Deck

The restaurant is located in its own grounds, and a table on the terrace or deck is simply perfect on a lovely day. Both areas are open to the elements with just umbrellas for shade.

β€œWe want to create a space where family and friend can enjoy the best of our regions produce”
- Susan Bruce

Kitchen Garden

The Kitchen Garden wicking beds supply fresh organic herbs and vegetables to the restaurant as well as a lovely location for that special long lunch.

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.
