A few times a year The Gin Trap host their increasingly popular Gin Festivals or ‘Gintastic Extravaganzas”. Whilst Gin does take centre stage there is live Music and a BBQ. A happy mix of locals and visitors makes up a lively crowd and it does get extremely busy so you need to go with a sense of humour (or drink a lot of gin!). Ringstead is a 5 minute drive from Magazine Wood.

The Gin Trap Inn is a traditional and cosy 17th-century coaching inn and has a long and colourful history. It has been a public house since 1668 and the date 1667 can be found on one of the walls of the former farmhouse. Clearly ahead of it’s time and now the natural choice for somewhere to sample their selection of over 100 gins from all corners of the globe.
