The food was average pub grub. I wont go again, not my cup of tea. Prices were good. We were the only ones there for a 7pm booking and they told us after ordering they have sold out of pork belly???? but we are the only people here?? Need to have menu details shared before ordering, so customers are aware of the items not available.

Delightfully retro with great food and service. We regularly drive out from Newmarket for the step back in time that is Gamekeepers. Please don't change a thing!

Amazing place, both our meals were really delicious. The game pie was probably the best meal I’ve ever eaten.

We had a lovely dinner celebrating our 10th Wedding Anniversary. We married at Settlers 10yrs ago, so it was nice to go back and reminisce. The food was amazing.I can highly recommend The Game Keepers Restaurant.

Only 1-2 waiter/waitress on site to support, took quite a while to get someone orders food and get stuff. Didn't really have service. Food is alright, overall average rating.

Service was terrible, took over 10mins for staff to even acknowledge us after arriving. Food was very slow to arrive and could be described as average at best.

It took about 40 minutes for a table of 10 to get food at lunch. There was a big function outside and they were apologetic that it took a while. The food was very nice and great value for money. It was decorated very nicely.

We were seated by the fire but as it is quite a cavernous space we were still cold. Everyone downstairs was still wearing their jackets as were we but not really prepared with our warmest. We were told it was warmer upstairs. Probably a fan above and behind the fire would make a difference?

Thank you for a wonderful dinner for my family and myself. I found the Seafood absolutely delicious. It was for my birthday and it was indeed a very special treat. I appreciate that you went to the extent of making our 10 year old comfortable and happy supplying her with activities and colouring in which was a great time fill. The dinners were excellent. The staff although busy were accommodating. Thank you for an excellent occasion, we will definitely return.
