We've visited before when we've been in the area and always had an excellent experience. 6 of us booked for Sunday lunch as we met halfway between our homes and this was another great visit. The food, cosy ambience and service is always extremely good. The staff are always very attentive and Phil, the owner, went out of his way... More

I am on business travel with my colleague from Texas for a week, and this was by far the best pub. The owners, Philip and Sandra were very nice and made us feel very welcome. We didn't have a booking but they squeezed us in. Food was delicious! It is a "must go" pub if you are visiting Basingstoke. The... More

Tucked away in to a tiny beautiful countryside village. It was warm and cozy and the food delicious. Exactly what we were after.

A truly lovely pub / restaurant buried away in the countryside not far from Basingstoke. A great homely atmosphere with wonderful service and delightful food. Must book for Friday / Saturday evenings as can get very busy at times.

We were not disappointed with this little gem of a pub. Fantastic menus to choose from, with the owner explaining the whole menu to us was a lovely touch (we were surprised when he came over as he was dressed so casually in comparison to his smartly dressed staff!) The welcome was warm and the staff were extremely attentive, which... More

Recommended by a friend of my date, we booked a table for friday evening, not knowing what to expect. Well, what a little gem! Amazing little country pub style inside, with a lovely little restaurant, nice and cozy. Very friendly and efficient staff, and the food... wow. The owner (we think it was the owner) explain the menu that was... More

We visited the Gamekeepers back in October as it is close to where our friends have just moved to in Lychpit. The four of us went for an evening meal and we realized quickly how popular it was when booking a couple of weeks in advance and the only table left on a Saturday night was at 8.30pm. It was...

I like hearty food especially in cold weather and The Gamekeepers provides this in spades. The pleasingly short menu, on a blackboard only, offers a good selection of local produce for both starters and main course which was amplified by a verbal run through our waiter. We were 4 people and our starters included a really excellent Winter Salad (for... More

I can honestly say this is one the very best pubs I have ever visited. We received a warm welcome from the staff, and although the kitchen had officially closed five minutes ago the chef stayed to cook us a superb dinner. The pub has a wonderful historic ambience with oak beams and roaring fires. They serve well kept local... More
