My favourite British name has to be Mappledurwell.
I don't think you can get more British than that.
Add to that wooden beams and classic country-side memorabilia and you've got yourself a true British pub in the most British-sounding village.
The food was good, very good, but very very rich. There was no way I could fit a dessert in and even T couldn't manage a dessert, which is saying something...
Instead we opted to enjoy the beautiful Summer's eve.
It wasn't until we went outside to explore, did we discover the best part about the Gamekeepers: the big empty field (well according to Queenie).
Where you can still drink wine of course.
Phil, the landlord is super friendly and is just as dog-mad as we are. He even face-timed his wife, Sandra, just so she could meet Queen Lii Lii (totally something my dad would do)! Such a warm, family-orientated pub and they made me feel just at home.
