The Sir John Barleycorn, Cadnam
This 12th century pub is situated on the edge of the New Forest and is reputed to be the oldest inn in the New Forest. The original three cottages were converted into a traditional thatched pub and restaurant and were once the home of the Purkiss family. It was their ancestor who found the body of King William Rufus after he had been mysteriously killed whilst hunting nearby. A poor charcolburner, he trundled the Kings remains in his cart to Winchester Cathedral, where the monks quickly buried his body. For his efforts Purkiss was given an acre or two of land around the pub.
