The Fox Goes Free, Charlton
12 miles east and south of Petersfield. Rangy, popular, comfortable old country pub. Stylish restaurant too, offering really exceptional quality and value - the Hipster was quite moved on its last visit by a piece of perfectly cooked belly pork at a very reasonable price. Excellent wines and beers, including its own traditional Fox bitter at a refreshing 3.5°. Nice garden where you can sit under old apple trees and enjoy lovely views of the downs. Rooms available, popular with the horse crowd. Regular music nights and poker school. Quite terrific really. More detail here. Get there: turn east at Singleton off the Midhurst/ Chichester road, travel two to three miles along a single track road. 01243 811461 GMAP
