About our venue

The Poachers Hungry Horse pub at Bamber Bridge is very much a destination dining venue which welcomes the whole family. Easily accessible by car we are at the end of the M65 and only 2 minutes from the M6 motorway. Following a major refurbishment and re-branding, we re-opened in Summer 2016 as a new Hungry Horse. Attracting plenty of passing custom and people from the Premier Inn next door, our visitors can expect a place with both a modern and contemporary appearance where meals are served throughout the day. The Hungry Horse food menu has choices for all ages and tastes at superb value, served to you by friendly and helpful staff. To complement your chosen meal there is a selection of wines, standard beers and tea / coffee to finish. Our location also makes this a venue suitable for large events which are held in the function room. This has facilities for occasions such as weddings and meetings. All enquiries are very welcome. To cater for all members of the public we have complete disabled access and parents with young families can use our baby changing unit. Poachers is a place which offers quality in good surroundings. Why not try us soon?
