We use the Gamekeepers for some special family celebrations as it has a brilliant balance of a relaxed welcoming atmosphere but with top quality food. Phil, the owner takes the food orders and explains the menu and will accommodated any changes that were asked for . We were a party of 10 , all served at the same time correctly... More

We head here fairly regularly for dinner as the food is great quality, the wine menu is varied and the atmosphere is good. The staff are helpful and attentive yet not overbearing. Food choices are smaller than other pubs but reflects the use of local, fresh and seasonal produce. Everything is cooked fresh and you can swap around potato or... More

I and my fellow colleagues had a memorable evening - tasty dishes with an innovative mix of local and world food, great drinks both on the beer and wine side, caring staff, and great atmosphere - busy but not too loud - which allowed lively conversations and good laughs. Prices seem to be on the mid- to high-end but it... More

A lovely evening had at The Gamekeepers for my Mums' special birthday. Nothing was too much trouble and I particularly love Phil and the overview of the menu. Good old fashioned customer service! I would not hesitate to recommend to others and will certainly be returning. Fast becoming one of my favourite places to eat.

Set in a picturesque Hampshire village, this pub/restaurant delivered one of the nicest, tastiest meals we've had for a long time. Food and the hospitality of the landlord and staff is ubdoubtably excellent. Apparently the menu is changed often so hats off to the chef for variety. A bit more than your average prices but you certainly get what you... More

Perfect little country pub. Amazing food, although a little pricey you defintely get the quality you are paying for! In nice weather there is plenty of outdoor seating. And nice cosy areas inside too.

I visited The Gamekeepers a while ago and very much enjoyed the burger from the lunch menu. I was therefore very much looking forward to dinner recently. When we arrived we were told that the starters and mains were written on the board at the end of the dining area. Luckily my eyesight is good and I could read the... More

Love this place, havent been for ages, went for my birthday with my wife and 23 year old son. They are so welcoming, and the owner obviously loves what he does, the passion he has when explaining the menu is fantastic. The food is very very good, watch out for that shared cheese fondue starter, its a struggle between 3... More

We were really impressed with the service and food at this pub. Was our first visit but will definately come back. My husband is gluten free and it was all very easy to change things on the menu to suit. Really good experience.

This is a restaurant and pub with a very friendly welcoming, small enough to be quite intimate, the staff are very attentive and make you feel very welcome. It is the third time I have visited and the menu does not really vary from each visit. Whilst the food is certainly of a high standard and well prepared I feel... More
