The food is excellent at The Gamekeepers, but the price is on the high side, for a pub. If, however, you are celebrating then it is the place to go.

Simply this place is an wonderful experience. From the oldie English pub, excellent food, gregarious owner and attentive staff this is a standout place to take those new to England to experience what good food can be. A true gem that must be experienced.

Great food. Very tasty. Would recommend. Very attentive at first seemed to lose interest with us once we'd ordered our main. Didn't like surcharge automatically on the bill. We always leave a tip. No need to stick it on our large bill.
