A huge chimney, known as a baffle entry, blocks your way on entering this 17th-century pub. You have to turn left or right, but it doesn't matter which, for either way you’ll find homely bars with hop-strewn beams, a huge fireplace, Bowman Ales Swift One, Ringwood Fortyniner, local guest ales and Mr Whitehead's cider. The menu will please those who enjoy, for example, Welsh rarebit with Suthwyk Ale; local hand-made pork sausages and mash; smoked Scottish salmon salad; or Hampshire beefburger. A beer festival takes place on the first weekend in October. Eighteenth-century naturalist and author Gilbert White lived at The Wakes just up the road.
