The Oak Inn
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
57 Martins Hill Lane, Burton, Christchurch, BH23 7NW
Located on the edge of The New Forest, this large inn has been providing refreshment and quality pub food to Burton locals and passers-by since 1932. Run by Gill and Mick Macauley, The Oak Inn offers everything you'd hope for in a country inn. Enjoy a game of pool with friends in the relaxing bar, perhaps while savouring a pint of Ringwood Best Bitter or Stowford Press cider. When it comes to the food, the 'chicken and mushroom piggyback' (a breast of chicken topped with bacon, mushroom and melted cheese, served with chips and peas) is a must, while for vegetarians, there's the mushroom, Brie, rocket and redcurrant filo bundle. In the summer months, parents can dine alfresco while the children play in the safety of the secure beer garden. Visit on Sunday for a seriously good roast; dogs are welcome and a large car park means there's no excuse not to stop by.
