POACHERS PANTRY SMOKEHOUSE RESTAURANT
431 Nanima Road, Springrange poacherspantry.com.au For 15 years, Poachers Pantry Smokehouse Restaurant has been a favourite of Canberrans, who flock to this establishment near Murrumbateman every weekend. They fill their bags with house-cured and -smoked meats and stock up on Wily Trout wines produced on site. Most importantly, they spend a leisurely afternoon grazing on standout dishes such as smoked duck breast with lashings of Béarnaise sauce or venison cutlet laced with red-curry jus. Nab a spot on the timber deck if the weather gods are smiling or gun for a table inside with its floor-to-ceiling windows and laid-back atmosphere.
