I had this in a medieval knight's pub in Torquai ten years ago. The cider is not apple juice like it would be in the US but actually it's British alcoholic cider. Not Strongbow, though, but some sweeter cider with only 4 percent alcohol. For the game use any mix of rabbit, hare, partridge, pheasant and venison or if you don't have game use chicken, beef, rabbit.
