I certainly don't agree with Big Robbo... We stayed for a week in Ringstead in July 12 and visited 3 times... Landlady was very friendly, food was excellant (try the gourmet burger) and had Woodfordes Wherry & Once Bittern as well as Adnams beers. The pub is a delight, having both a nice restaurant but rustic bar area. We were also lucky enough to see the ashdown forest morris men here on one leg of there 2012 Norfolk tour - A perfect quintissential English scene. Apparently this is the only pub in England called the "Gin Trap"...

Called in for lunch after a 7 mile walk around the local countryside and found this place the perfect refuelling spot. A nice pint of Woodforde's Wherry and generous portions of really well prepared food soon replaced the lost calories. The landlord and his wife were friendly and helpful. The only problem was the bar was a tad on the chilly side. Otherwise, a really good place.

Maybe they don't like summer! Visited for lunch in September. Staff were freindly, beer was well kept and the food very good. I'd go again

My family and I are staying in Ringstead for a week in October so we had a daytrip up to have a look around. After a 2.5 hour drive up we found the lovely cottage that we would be staying at and then headed to the local pub for a beer and a bite, "The Gin Trap"....... A big disapointment, not very welcoming and the Lady boss had the hump and it seems an attitude problem to tourists !!!!

So we won't be back for a pint or more in October, BUT, found a lovely pub in Holme next the sea called, "The White Horse" who could not have been more welcoming and served delicious food at great prices and some great guest ales, and only a mile and a half from Ringstead.

So do yourselves a past "The Gin Trap" and head to "The White Horse" at Holme Next the sea.

This pub was very disappointing. The staff don't know how to deal with complaints. I was served a beefburger which was raw inside, although I had ordered medium. When I mentioned it to the lady who took my money, she said that she had asked me whether the food was OK and I had said yes. I explained that had been before I had cut into the burger, and that it wasn't appropriate to ask whether the food is OK before I had even tasted it. She didn't even apologise. The beer was OK though!
