The Gamekeepers

Tunworth Road, MAPLEDURWELL, RG25 2LU

When, in the mid-19th century, shoemaker Joseph Phillips tired of measuring less-than-fragrant feet, he turned his workshop and home into a pub, calling it The Queen's Head. Just beyond the village, its noteworthy internal features include low beams, flagstone floors and an indoor well. Armed with a drink, settle into a leather sofa and study the daily-changing menu with a view to choosing between, perhaps, a starter of Moroccan meatballs in cumin, paprika, onion, garlic, chilli and tomato sauce with herb linguine; or the charcuterie board of buffalo mozzarella, salami, black olive tapenade, sun-dried tomatoes and pesto. Further thought is then required for whether to choose oven-baked loin of cod with sag aloo, mange-tout, and yogurt and curry oil dressing; slow-cooked venison and Guinness hotpot with wild mushrooms; or pumpkin ravioli cooked in sage butter with rocket and parmesan. Peach and champagne sorbet, or apple crumble with cinnamon ice cream could follow.
