Came here for dinner for the first time in a few years at about 5 and was eventually seated by impatient staff. The restaurant was clean and creative. We had a garlic bread for an entree which was extremely disappointing but came out quickly. Live music started at 5.30 which was awful and overbearing, we couldn't hear the people across... More

My wife and I went to the Gamekeepers yesterday for lunch and it was most delightful. there was an open fireplace with a beautiful fire going, (one of the coldest day's so far this year snow everywhere). the ambience and staff were excellent whilst the meal was just delightful, simply melted in you mouth and quite reasonably priced.

We eat here fairly regularly. Service is always good, orders are taken efficiently, food served in good time. I haven't had anything from the menu that I could fault, steaks, fish, steak pie, risotto, stir-fry, all really good. Good atmosphere on nights with live music.

This is one of my favourite restaurants! The food is delicious and the atmosphere is warm and cosy! The desserts are scrumptious and the staff are friendly! Great for a romantic dinner!

Used to be a great pub, but not the case anymore, plates and cutlery were dirty, the pub in general needs a good clean very dusty and grimy. The standard of food has dropped as has presentation. Our steak was of standard quality and the salad was dry and stale, our Chips didn't taste right either. The service was great... More

We had dropped in here previously for a drink and some very nice snacks (tapas starters on the menu) and so we decided on a Sunday drive to have some lunch. The fire was going and the welcome and service was lovely. Portions were huge and food was very tasty. I had the lamb shanks which were great, melt in... More

My daughter and I had an amazing night at the Gamekeepers Secret Inn last night. The food was yummy, particularly the calamari, which just melted in your mouth. The entertainment was exceptional, what a voice! My daughter was also given the opportunity to belt out a song, which made our night. All staff were super friendly, particularly the owners/managers. I... More

We've been going to The Gamekeeper for 8 years now. The food, the service and the atmosphere are excellent. The music was fantastic. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the don't cater for Vegetarians.

The place is dark and dingy, the bar is cluttered and cramped. No aircon was on and ute air was cloying. Only one light working in the ladies so you were forced to use the one cubicle. The whole place is in bad need of a good paint and furniture spruce up. I asked for a coaster for my pint... More
