|Choose this country pub from the CAMRA Beer Guide 2008 as it had a house brew produced by a local brewer. Sadly, the house brew (Wolf Brewery) was not on when I visited on 27/05/2008 but they did have Timothy Taylor - Landlord and Adnams - Broadside. The Broadside was in okay condition. Nice beer garden and eating area inside. Found the food menu to be very pricy and had many unusual dishes. Could have done with a few more traditional dishes to provide a good varied selection. Having said that the landlady was very welcoming and was able to accomodate our child with a variation from the menu at half-price.|

|Visited this one on Friday 6th. July, arrived at 9 to find the place very busy, mostly diners, asked if we were O.K. for food, no problem, last orders at 9:30, had a pint of the house brew from Wolf, Superb, my friend went for the Adnams and found it excellent, Wife had red wine and was offered a reasonable choice, We were alloted a table and menus arrived before we were settled, not rushed to make our selections but our order was taken within about 5 mins, our meals, all different, arrived within 15 mins, all hot, no delays, everything we needed with no drama or fuss, my Cesar Salad with Char-grilled Chicken was excellent.|
In all a very pleasant experience, will certainly call again when this way.
They must have read the previous reviews and have risen to the challenge.

|Unfortunately for me this pub has gone downhill under new ownership. Not realising it had changed hands My wife and I took two friends to eat there based on fantasctic previous experiences. From quality food reasonably priced with good service - it has degenereated considerably. We shall not be calling again.|

|The Gamekeeper's reputation locally has been reported as having gone down over recent months following a change of ownership. Nonetheless, my organisation (50 people) held its Christmas 2006 dinner there recently(menus prebooked). Service was extraordinarily slow (over a hour's wait between the starter and the main courses starting to be served, the food was indifferent (several colleagues were not amused by the shoe leather-like qualities of the roast venison). The range of beers on offer has also diminished. The local real ale on offer (from Wolf, a very fine brewery) was "off"; indeed the bar staff who tasted two of the returned pints commented that the beer tasted like vinegar.|
