First place I came across was the Ringwood Brewery, a number of good ales produced by this brewer. Had a major session on Ringwood 49er I think once.
A few years back we went to Rhinfield House Hotel in the New Forest for a friends 40th Birthday meal (Cheers Gully). Not being a great lover of wine, decided that the only thing worth drinking was ale, they had ringwood but only in bottle form. As the evening wore on, each time a waitress came near me I would ask for another, but it did get to the stage where the waitress ended up asking me if I was sure? what do you mean am I sure?, Well, Sir, was her reply, you have all ready drunk a case by yourself, so just checking! Then every bottle afterwards I was asked the same question! Then at breakfast I ordered coffee, and the same waitress asked if I was sure, to much merryment of those around me! It was a good night, rather expensive, and was hung over the next day, but if I wasnt I would of wanted my money back!

All though a severe punishment, I reckon they had things right in those days, I would like to see the stocks put back into place, so all those theiving scum bags that are caught can have rotten cabbages, and worse thrown at them!
A few pictures of West Street, and Market Place, also St Peters Church.

They call this progress! Looks like it as well! I hope the bridge designer is proud of this!
Back at the van "M" cooking home made meatballs with a thick tomato sauce, with tagliatelle paglia e fieno no less! Nothing out of a jar or packet in this caravan! Its smelling very good, so time for the 2nd can of Blackthorn, part of my Government 5 a day! So perfectly acceptable and a healthy option, its made from apples isnt it!?
Kids if your reading this, if you dont want to end up portly like my good self, totally disregard anything I say and go google "disney"
