I was in the area with a group of friends for my birthday and found The Gamekeepers via a google search as we were looking for somewhere to eat and for one of our party to watch his team on the TV before moving on to a concert elsewhere. We arrived before the pub actually officially opened (our fault we... More

I've got to get the automatic 10% service charge off my chest ! Why don't they just make the menu prices 10% dearer ? That would be over £30 for a fillet steak ! I love the atmosphere and the personal service, but when a bill for three is £185 and one had a burger, it is getting too expensive.... More

Such exceptional food just amazing experience all round. The owner came and explained to whole menu to us and if there was anything we would like but not on the menu they would see if they could make it. It's a definite must for anyone.

My husband and I, with our friends, visited this pub last night and we had a superb evening. We could not fault anything, the food was fantastic and the service was spot on, very attentive without being overbearing. A tight and very well run pub / restaurant. Iif we had to make some observations, we thought, the wine was expensive... More

This place is great for a copy night out, loads of space, friendly staff in a beautiful off the beaten track venue. However we went there to eat but decided against it when we saw the prices. The food looked amazing but was far over our budget

we were a party of 6. We enjoyed our meals very much though I am still puzzled as to why the menu stated rustic chip potato... they arrived ordinary frozen chips!!! However, I would certainly eat at this establishment again.

I really can't fault The Gamekeepers. Excellent food, brilliant service, comfy and welcoming surroundings, but...... it's a pub. A lovely pub and fab food, but it's a pub none the less, charging expensive restaurant prices. Our bill for four of us was almost £250.00, this did include a couple of drinks each, but even so. I'd definitely recommend, but think... More

We booked our Christmas Day lunch here after many excellent meals, however, it didn't really deliver the same level of excellence, service was great, food average. Our baked Camembert which is a signature dish, had been so over cooked compared to the other on on our table which looked great, someone had stirred it to cover up the state of... More
