A bar and eatery with all the right vibes to see your evening get off to a terrific start, Jolly Poacher is for those who want a side plate of fun with their main.

Everyone in Christchurch knows that Jolly Poacher has plenty of antics up its sleeve. This is where the best musicians grace the stage, where game nights are a multi-weekly occurrence, and where there is an adventure to be had around every corner. So, bring your whole crew and get a round-in outside on their lively terrace or inside in their colourful dining room complete with quirky taxidermy. It won't be long before this is your new favourite hangout!

And what could be better than tucking into some great pub grub as you marvel at the evening's entertainment? With all the usual suspects, including perfectly grilled steak, sticky ribs, creamy cajun chicken and plenty of burgers to mess up your sparkling white shirt, this is exactly the kind of food that'll get you through a cold and rainy evening or an endless summer night on the terrace.

And it ain't a proper party without some liquid fun. Let loose with some classic cocktails or throw caution to the wind with the cocktail of the week. With so much to guarantee an unforgettable evening, it won't be long before the Jolly Poacher has poached you as a regular visitor too!
