About Us

Whether you fancy a lunch time light bite or an evening meal there is something for everyone with British produce and local suppliers used wherever possible here at The Elsworth Poacher,seasonality is also very important, so changes are regular when it comes to our menu’s. We work closely with our suppliers to ensure our Fruit and Vegetables are British, in season and suited to our menu. Fenstanton Family Butcher’s look after all our fresh meat requirements and have total traceability on everything they supply, from our Handmade Chef’s Burgers to our ‘Own Recipe Sausages’ we always try to use the Best of British.

We specialise in traditional pub food and are well known for our fantastic Homemade Pies and stunning ‘Burger Menu’, Wonderful Horseshoe Gammon and delicious Kebab’s. During these very different times during the Covit-19 Pandemic we are not operating our usual business, we have designed a Take Away, Sandwich and Main Menu that will be running until further notice. We are very price sensitive especially on our lunch menu and obviously some items cannot be locally sourced but are must haves on a pub menu. Within both menu’s there is a large range of Gluten Free dishes, and we have some fantastic Vegetarian options with Meat Free Sausages and Specialist Vegetarian Burgers now available plus some exciting new dishes on both our Lunchtime and Main Menu, such as Mixed Mushroom Chilli and a stunning Rustic Summer Vegetable Bake. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have specific dietary requirements.

We have a superb, ever changing Dessert Menu, David, a chef for over 25 years makes all the desserts and specialises in traditional favourites, such as Sticky Toffee Pudding, Cheesecakes and delicious Fruit Crumbles, you really do need to leave some room for one of them! We also have are famous ‘Doggie Dinners’, we are very dog friendly here at The Elsworth Poacher and have an area in the pub where we allow man’s (and women’s) best friend, why not treat them to a meal while you enjoy yours. We would like to thank ‘Oscar Free Range Dog Food’ for their assistance. Fantastic Real Ales and a Superb Wine List compliment the Menus, ales change on a regular basis and we always try to use local breweries. Our wines have been selected to include a ‘New World Sauvignon Blanc’ and a new Argentinian Melbec, the list is based on quality wines at sensible prices. (Please go to our ‘Wine Section’ for the full list).
