In mid-November 2015 the EADT reported that a planning application to convert the Poacher to residential use had been lodged. This has since been granted and the pub closed at the beginning of 2017.
The Poacher was an absolute gem! It had only been a pub since 1979, having been a shop previously. The internal timbering created a timeless atmosphere.
There was occasional live music.
