Hit & Miss

Hit & miss really. Not as busy as what they used to be. Not sure if 'Eat Street' at Watergardens has affected their business. We were served large, filling portions and there were a lot of gluten free options available, which was a bonus for one member of our party. Just lacking any real... read more

My husband and I had our wedding dinner here a few years ago. It was great then and it still is! We went for lunch on 29th Dec 2015 for my birthday and it was absolutely scruuuuuumtious! The food was wonderful and servings are plentiful. The service was also as good! I am a Coeliac and require Gluten Free food... More

If only there were an option to give 0 stars. The Christmas lunch we experienced yesterday was absolutely dismal. From entrées coming out with unpolished spoons dunked in the luke warm soup, to "carvery" mains with a slice of processed ham and hardening gravy from sitting under heat lamps in the kitchen. My sister's vegetarian option of a stir fry... More

Inside of building was dark and Uninviting. There was a considerable amount of old food on the floor and also dryed on the table, we were the first customers of the day. Plates were chipped. Food was fairly expensive but the quality did not meet the price. Staff director d not seem to be well trained.

We had never been to the Game Keepers Inn before, and we found it very good. Service was a bit slow, but the food was loverly and well worth the wait.

Called to make a booking, owner advised me they were booked out but to come in and he would squeeze us in, we came and had a drink at the bar whilst they made room for us. Food was delicious and staff were happy to help. Will be back

Had dinner on a week night and it was quite busy on one side of the restaurant. The staff were quick to sit us down, take our orders and drinks came through in a dash complete with wine tasting before it was tipped in our glasses. Impressive presentation of mains and good tasting too. Price was not cheap but not... More

Booked our valentines dinner here, first impressions were good we got a warm welcome, once we were shown to our table 15 mins later our drinks order was taken, then shortly after our set meal was ordered. We struggled to get more drinks during the night so decided to order a bottle of champagne to make sure we had something,... More
