Poachers Inn

55 High Street, Ide, Exeter, EX2 9RW

The Poachers Inn is a delightful village inn, on the outskirts of sunny Exeter. The pub has a great reputation for superb food, all prepared and cooked on the premises and using, wherever possible, local ingredients.

The venison is from Haldon, and all other meats are sourced locally. There is a separate dining room for more intimate entertaining and reservations are advisable.

Beer has been a hobby of Tony the landlord for many a year, and he has an extraordinary knowledge of the subject. Branscombe Branoc is always available on the bar with 5 other real ales available, mainly from Devon, Cornwall, Dorset or Somerset.

There are more than 20 wines available, too many whiskies to mention and Tony’s favourite Armagnac where the bottle is nearly always empty. We also have our own gin and tonic menu which is definately worth a look at. The Poachers Inn also boasts three sumptuous letting rooms, one with a four poster bed, available for 1 night or longer stays.

The garden looks out onto the Devon hills and is a great place to sit in the sun and get down to nature. During the summer the barbecue is open for private parties or for hire to cook yourself.
