Great spot with excellent selection of food & wine.
Obviously a very busy Saturday lunch time in the summer - service was great - friendly and efficient.
Excellent knowledge of wines as expected which made for a good discussion and a bit of tasting.
Nice quiet & cool area to eat, and sheltered from the sun.
Thanks for your hospitality

Although they were short-staffed, the young man who was working was very friendly and made sure all the customers were looked after. This place is very quaint with beautiful gardens, bridges and a pergola. We had lunch here and the food was good. Really enjoyed my burger!

Have had to relocate my wedding ONE WEEK out due to the sale of settlers. If you have a wedding coming up be very careful about whether you get the full 6.5 acres and a car park. On my understanding, the new owner and old owner have not finished business negotiations, and the car park and land are now the old owners private property and need to be rented by the new owner, who is refusing to rent them. Very unprofessional. Very stressful

We booked a table for two and were seated beside the logburner - loved the setting and what has been done with this old Dairy Co-op factory....renovated with beautiful gardens and a almost medieval woodwork styling inside with many interesting items to look over. Staff provided a high level of service was as expected and food beyond expectation. Loved the ability to talk to my partner rather than yell at him as happens at many other restaurants in the area....lighting at first seemed dark but once your eyes adjust it is just part of the atmosphere. Pretty sure this is one of our favourite places to dine in NZ - looking forward to our next visit.

Game Keeper's is one of those places that are amazing to visit all year round. The interior and exterior design takes your mind on a journey through time, it is interesting to read about the Settlers history. Love the interior, and in summer it's beautiful sitting outside. Make sure to take some time to explore the garden. The menu is tasteful, and meals are beautifully presented and of highest quality. We love coming here for a special night out with family and friends.
