About The Zookeeper's Son
In 1912 J.J. Boyd's zoo opened in Royal Oak with lions and all manner of exotic creatures.
Before long one of the lions decided to escape - only to be recaptured by Mr Boyd's son.
We've named this establishment The Zookeeper's Son, as a reminder that sometimes you need to be let loose....
Celebrated my birthday here. Staff are so friendly and great service.
The Roof Top Bar is an awesome place to hold a function. Great food, drinks and amazing friendly/helpful staff. Would have no hesitation on the Zoo Keepers being my first point of call for any function.
Good food and excellent service
Excellent venue for a litttle team get together
We booked a table for 2pm and got told we had to move at 6pm yet we still had a party of 8 spending money.. in my mind it was still Our table
Good steak.. Beer battered chips are possibly the best in the world!!
Well organised as usual. You looked after us very well. Thank you
Our team dined at Zookeeper's son this afternoon and had an amazing time. The services was wonderful. We didn't have to wait too long for our food and everyone on the table enjoyed their food. Thank you for looking after us so well!
Entree and mains were delicious. Dessert was average. Evening enjoyed by all our guests and they enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Staff were very kind and helpful.
It would be better when offering water at the beginning of the meal if you stated that sparkling water would have to be paid for. We were on a budget and this took us over the limit, however everyone was satisfied with their meal.
Great place for a quick meal. Enjoyed the quiz night.
It was a great night and was really enjoyed by all. For many of them it was their first visit to the Zookeepers Son and they were most impressed. Will certainly have my next function there.
Definitely recommend the Roast Carving Board - they were even happy to make my gravy gluten free!
Karen is gluten intolerant and was disappointed with the amount of gluten free food other than pizzas, I think you could do a lot better. The staff members also did not fill the beer glass to the top so we were paying high prices for drinks we were not getting.
Staff here with amazing, went over the top to help us with everything. We came here with a group of 25 girls for a hen's do which could have been a bit overwhelming for them but they were amazing - even brought out a free shot for the hen! Thanks guys!!
Food was great, large servings and value for money. We were booked to be seated up stairs but the staff on that night were not told so we were seated downstairs where it was very loud. However we had 2 people not show and the manager was very understanding and accommodating. Overall great experience, only thing that would of made it better is being seated where we booked.
Good place for an after work drink. Friendly service.
Awesome afternoon, bar staff were so friendly and accommodating.
We love the space and vibe of the Rooftop bar. We appreciated the affordable cost of the catering and the service of the friendly bar staff.
We want to give more than 5 stars for the service!! From Catherine who took care of us and our last minute booking, helped us with pre-orders via emails, to, the wonderful floor staff.... A*M*A*Z*I*N*G We were a huge group of 19 who decided musical chairs was a great idea, (surely a nightmare for the restaurant) and your floor team took our craziness in their stride. They helped us take photos, we had to add more food to our order, and they made that look too easy, they kept our table nice and tidy, checked on us...oh, just awesome. Beautiful smiles and beautiful manners. The food was O*U*T*S*T*A*N*D*I*N*G and the timing was total perfection. We can't thank you enough for making our Christmas dinner the success it was. Merry Christmas to everyone at The Zookeeper's Son. See you again and again in 2019 x
