Tunworth Road, Mapledurwell, Nr. Basingstoke, RG25 2LU
This warm, welcoming and relaxed inn can be found on a winding country lane near Basingstoke. Unusual features such as an original well in the bar area and cosy leather seats add real character. We chose a quiet corner from which we could see the menu written on chalkboards hanging above the fireplace. The waiting staff kindly explained the selection of dishes, pointing out local and seasonal produce.

The Gamekeepers strongly supports local suppliers, including Hampshire Cheeses, producers of the award-winning Tunworth cheese - a delicious strong, soft cheese that is served here baked with honey and thyme alongside plenty of bread. I went on to sample the chargrilled fillet of beef with Dauphinoise potatoes, blue cheese and pink peppercorn butter, wilted baby spinach and a red wine jus. The exceptional beef was so tender it melted in the mouth, as was the roast partridge, cooked in butter and thyme and served with fondant potatoes, creamed Savoy cabbage and bacon. Our meals were cooked to perfection, making this a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

The Gamekeepers is a wonderful place to spend the evening; I felt entirely relaxed thanks to both the setting and, of course, the good wine. The owners have created more than just a country inn - this is a first-class restaurant in its own right.
