A fun-loving, quirky establishment in Royal Oak, The Zookeeper's Son is bound to unleash your wild side!

Inside, outside, cosy, open, formal, casual... they have a complete flock of dining styles! Their glass-roofed bar might as well be a jungle with all the luscious potted plants they've managed to fit in; there'll be a toucan sighting next! Inside it's everything a modern gastropub should be. It's spacious, stylish and if you find yourself there in the late hours, you won't emerge till the early ones.

In terms of food, there are pub classics to please the whole herd. Kick off with some naughty-but-nice tidbits, like prawn or mushroom dumplings, chicken wings or a cheeky fried fish taco. Alternatively, go for gold with the almighty Ringmaster Platter which is as magnificent as it sounds.

For mains, fill your boots with their array of juicy burgers, curries and Kiwi classics like lamb shank and fish and chips. If none of those tickle your fancy, lead the pack to their pizza menu which serves up a cheesy slice of authentic Italy. Roam the planes of foodie deliciousness and then stay for a drink or three... it'll prove very amusing indeed!
