'Raising the Game' at The Purefoy Arms
The award-winning Purefoy Arms in Preston Candover, Hampshire, is celebrating Great British Game Week (25th November – 1st December) with a special ‘Raising the Game’ Menu that will donate 40% of profits to Hampshire Medical Fund.
The delicious 3-course menu is a feast of wild British game sourced by the pub’s local gamekeeper. The week, organised by Taste of Game in partnership with Game to Eat, encourages people to taste game for the first time and try new produce through various events and offers.
Great British Game Week Menu

Rabbit Loin wrapped in Parma Ham served with Butternut Squash, Redcurrants, Mushroom, Beetroot and Coriander

‘Fruits of the Hedgerow’
For this special event, The Purefoy Arms has chosen to partner with Hampshire Medical Fund, a local charity which buys cutting-edge medical equipment for Basingstoke, Winchester and Andover hospitals.
Chef patron, Gordon Stott, comments, “Wild game is often overlooked which is a real shame as not only is it versatile and incredibly delicious, it’s one of the healthiest meats, being both low in fat and cholesterol, high in essential vitamins and Omega-3, and hormone additive free.
“British Game Week is an opportunity for our guests to try something new. For me, eating out is an experience; a talking-point for people who love food and discovering the story behind the dishes and ingredients. We’re looking forward to sharing this with our guests and helping to raise awareness for Hampshire Medical Fund whose fundraising is essential for our local community.”
