About Settlers Country Manor
Our onsite restaurant ‘The Game Keepers Restaurant and Bar’ offers acclaimed New Zealand cuisine with friendly and attentive service in a beautiful historical setting. With a unique atmosphere, courtyard and garden area including both indoor and outdoor fires, it truly is a sight to behold.
Whether it’s for an intimate dinner for two or a larger function, The Game Keepers Restaurant can cater to your requirements. Using only the finest quality, locally sourced ingredients, and with an extensive wine list, we will do everything we can to ensure you have a fantastic time.
The greeting as we arrived was nonchalant and told to sit anywhere. The wine list was substandard to a restaurant of the quality it was portraying! Only average wines on the list, no quality wines at all. The wine and champagne glasses were cheep as if they came from Briscoes! The entrees were as expected but after that everything was a major disappointment. The Duck was completely over cooked and dry. The Eye Fillet was well done and not medium rare as ordered. The carrots and broccoli were almost raw. The apple crumble was watery and not enough crumble on it. We were never asked how each course was, we were only asked when I approached to pay. Then I commented and the young lad to pass my comments on. The two staff were on their cell phones and not paying attention. In my view I could take this restaurant from below average to good by starting with training of your staff in service and the chef should never send out substandard food. It’s shame as we had heard it was a nice restaurant. It was partners birthday and surprise for her, I was so let down and spoilt the evening.
We really enjoyed our steak meal, was cooked how we liked it. We will be back!
Enjoyed the evening very much, good friendly service, nice food and atmosphere
wish to thank you very much for the success of my 50th birthday celebration lunch. You and your staff were very accommodating and helped to make it very special for me. Thank you for organising it so well and making it run smoothly. My friends thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
Lovely decor, great atmosphere. The food is great.
Good food at reasonable price. A unique decor
Such an amazing iconic place! Like stepping in to a fairytale not to mention the food was so tasty and cooked to perfection! Perfect after an amazing day at Muriwai beach. Even though we were a bit scruffy looking the staff were so friendly, helpful and welcoming! The grounds are amazing! Will be back soon!
Great food, great service, great night. Thank you
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.
