Game in London

I'm new to game and would like to try it since it's in season. And I have a birthday and anniversary coming up so I could slip in a hint here and there...

What sort of meat would you suggest for someone who's new to game? I see the word "gamey" being thrown out a lot, but honestly I have no idea what that tastes like. I've had pigeon in Hong Kong before, but didn't find it much different from duck!

So far I've come up with a few restaurants on Chowhound and on Time Out that seem to get come up consistently for game, i.e. St John, Hereford Road, Harwood Arms, and Rules. My searches have also turned up The Ledbury, Le Cafe Anglais, and Galvin at Windows. I'm a student, so ideally wouldn't want to pay more than 30pp without wine (I don't drink alcohol). Is this possible at all? (I'd like to add that I've never eaten in a fine-dining establishment in London, so please forgive me if I'm being woefully ignorant about this whole process.)

Also, I know the Ledbury, le Cafe Anglais and Galvin all have set lunches - are they available on weekend lunchtimes as well, or just Mon-Fri?

All comments appreciated! Thanks!
