As this is our local we go quite often and have never been disappointed with our meal. If looking for a quiet night out then thoroughly recommend.

My Duck breast was overcooked and the pavlova was store bought which was also missing the advertised "Passionfruit Coulis". We also had to wait over an hour for dessert as a wedding was being held in another section of the lodge. Other diners enjoyed the Venison and mudcake on offer however it appeared the mudcake was store bought also.

We hadn't been to Gamekeepers before. It is an old dairy factory converted more recently to a restaurant. As you would expect, it has the usual deer heads etc on the walls, the menu tells you the history and it is a bit old fashioned in its furnishings. There was only one staff member acting as waiter / barman, server.... More

The atmosphere is unique and interestingly old worldly. The food was plentiful but the berger and chips were quite fatty. Service was friendly but a tad on the slow side. All in all ok but not spectacular the company mad it a pleasant afternoon.

Service is great but it seems to take such a long time for your order to be cooked, especially when there are only two groups of people there. Food however is just fantastic, tasty and mouthwatering. Will be back, but hope the chef can cook a bit faster next time LOL.

My wife and I visited this place probably 3 times, two during the day and one at night. The garden outside is amazing...recommended. Inside the atmosphere is nice too. The food was great. I specially enjoyed the Cajun Chicken salad that is excellent. The service was so so and we thought the prices were a bit high.
