We went for Father’s Day meal. The starters were good value for money. The roast lamb dinner was beautiful with plenty of vegetables, proper roast potatoes and very tasty gravy. Overall a very good experience and I would recommend it

IT was hard to differentiate between Bar and restaurant menus. We felt the food was of a "Good Pub Meal" standard and was probably what was required for the clientele. One suggestion would be to try to create a more homely/social atmosphere with more opportunity for customers to mix rather than just be in their own company in a semi- formal situation. We visited Foresters a few years previously and felt there was more of a "Pub" atmosphere then. This in no way downgraded the establishment but added to the friendliness of the atmosphere.
Hope this is constructive criticism as is not intended to be negative. Overall, we enjoyed our meals.

We arrived and got seated straight away how ever after 20 mins of sitting at the table another table arrived next to us with around 9 and got served by the waitress before us, we sat there for almost an hour before my husband went to the bar a second time and asked them about taking our order and then the girl from behind the bar came to us, the food was nice, garlic mushrooms lovely, prawn cocktail was a little bland and needed more sauce. Unfortunately because of the service and us have to rush our food to get back to the grandparents who were looking after our children. We did have a table for the whole family the night after but decided to cancel an eat at the lodge instead.

Definitely value for money as portions were large. However, the seats were wet from previous cleaning and it was only after we'd returned home that I realised I'd also paid for extra drinks not part of our table.

Had an amazing Sunday lunch at the Foresters. The beef with all the trimmings was delicious and the desserts were incredible.

Lovely hot food and well presented.. not the cheapest place to eat but steaks both nights were of good quality so no complaints there.
The only real negative was the bar lacks any atmosphere .
