“Absolutely stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

This is the second we have eaten here and we were blown away yet again by the service and quality of the food. Would most definitely visit again. Thank you to all staff for helping make our first wedding anniversary one to remember.

“Excellent Curry Night! ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

Visited last night for a great evening. Gorgeous food and the place was full and buzzing! Hope lots of money was raised and it was a success for The Gamekeeper itself. It would be wonderful to see it busy like this regularly, as the owners are trying to put on a good range of events. I have not given 5 out of 5 as we felt that the drinks were expensive! - but overall we had a great time. Thanks.

“Relaxing stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

Just had a weekend stay at the Gamekeeper, the staff were welcoming and very friendly. The room was beautifully appointed with clean towels every morning. Breakfast was a relaxed affair, not having to get up to early and the set lunch was worth the money. Would definitely stay here again.

“Very relaxing weekend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

Staying with friends for a long weekend to UK for an event. Three nights stay was really relaxing and the staff were very friendly and welcoming which helped us all relax and enjoy our time away together.

Great breakfast which set us up for the day and really tasty carvery on Sunday night with locally sourced beef and pork. Clean and tidy bedrooms in very peaceful surroundings. Only sounds hear were the sheep in the next field and the birds in the trees.
