Our group dine here often but were not impressed when the waiter told us they had just deleted the option of swapping vegetables for salad and vice versa. We were told if we wanted salad it was an extra $6. Most places are more than happy to swap them so what`s the deal? We told the waiter if we couldn`t swap we would dine elsewhere....
We hadnt been back here for a year or two and were so happy to have returned. LOVED the food and service (and price). There was 10 of us and every single person enjoyed their meal. 10/10 for the chef! Cant wait to return :)
Beautiful food and great comfortable atmosphere, just a little hidden gem!
Great combination of location atmosphere food wine and service. We will be back
Great meal, in a great spot, hard to believe this place is never full.
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!
Absolutely fantastic service and waiter were fantastic. Made our special day perfect. Thanks and we will be back
Great and very unique place. Excellent service. Highly recommend this place!
Lovely food and beautiful setting, we will return and have already recommended to a colleague. Thank-you.
Amazing place, both our meals were really delicious. The game pie was probably the best meal I’ve ever eaten.
Attentive service. Lovely food and venue.
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.
Everything was excellent & the maitre de was very attentive, even to suggesting courses & playing our wedding song as it was our wedding anniversary.
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.
The food, service, everything was amazing. We are definately coming back. On-line Restaurant booking was informative and easy to use.
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.
The place is beautiful and food was fabulous. 3 stars for atmosphere only becsause we were the only ones there which was a little awkard.
Great night out for the family, plenty of atmosphere and good food.
Had a lovely dinner and atmosphere took us back to an english pub
Great food, great service, highly recommend.
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?
