Honestly, this was the best roast dinner i've had thats not at Mum's. The quality of the food was phenomenal and very reasonably priced. They also provide an amazing vegan option which was perfect for my fiancé. The staff we're so kind, enthusiastic, and pleasant. Excellent selection of beers, wines, and spirits. Can't wait to come back again.

I was tempted not to write a review because we want to keep this place all to ourselves as an amazing best-kept secret! That's because The Forester's is absolutely fabulous - from its totally unexpected, slightly eccentric and luscious decor, to its friendly, attentive, efficient staff, to its rather splendid manageress, to undoubtedly the best Sunday lunch either of us have ever had. It's a real gem & I really hope the masses don't find out about it!!!

AMAZING meal. We went for lunch on bank holiday Monday and were not disappointed. It's a really cute little pub, with tasteful decor and the food is incredible. I had a delicious lamb pie and my partner had balti sausages with coriander mash. There was also a divine, cheesy crusty garlic bread - best garlic bread i've ever had. Will definitely be coming back!

Having had Sunday lunch here many times (and no hesitation in recommending it), we were very disappointed by our Friday lunchtime meal. The pie of the day (lamb with mozzarella and filo pastry) was ok, but nothing special. The veggie burger was dry and grainy, disintegrating as I ate it. Only an extra helping of guacamole made it edible, to be honest. And no salad in the bun to help it down. Such a shame. We'll stick to Sunday lunchtimes in future.

Service asked us to move the chairs more far away from the fire so customers can walk to the bathroom. But right behind me was easily access the bathroom. So since Waitress mention me her complaint i felt not comortable anymote.Restaurant had only one full table other tables were empty. Daily soup tasted horrible. Better I have not tried the second meal.

There is one thing I don't like on this menu: the mint sauce. I like the authentic stuff; fresh mint chopped on a wooden board, with good, raw cane sugar, etc......the way my dad taught me to make it.
The context, though, is that this is the only criticism I've ever had of this perfect pub, in many years of eating there. We've probably had a dozen Sunday dinners, often with walking chums, with family and with children who liked fine dining..........
A welcome, here, is a proper pub welcome, from a guvnor who knows what he's doing. Young staff are friendly and chatty with customers.
And the Sunday roast is perfect; beef is melting, roasties are crunchy and the gravy is narcotic.
The wine list is great. The music is never less than excellent - unobtrusive but high quality and mellow.
Now, does anyone want to come and visit us, or walk with us, every weekend in 2018, so's we always have an excuse to go here? I thank you.

My partner and I had the Sunday lunch at The Foresters. And it's the best Sunday roast I have had in a long time. I had the lamb and my partner had the nut roast. The considering how busy it was - they also provided a good service.

Lovely Sunday lunch here with the kids. Only Sunday lunches are offered on Sundays (with a fish and veggie option), so the kids were disappointed not to have chicken nuggets (!), but they both loved their mini roasts. The staff were all great, just the right amount of attentive and very helpful. Puddings were delicious and a nice selection. Good wine list. Love the ambience in the Foresters - will certainly be going back.

Great little place I have had a drink in before but this is the first time I've eaten here. It is cosy, low lit and ambient with a slight "boutique" feel with fabric drapes rather than old fashioned olde worlde style which sets it apart from other pubs nearby. Friendly and efficient staff served delicious and quite rich flavoured and very filling dishes (we had the stilton and cauliflower soup and the fishcake to start with the pie and the sausages as main). The price was fair for the quality and the wine list extensive. Toilets were decent too. All in all I would recommend and I will be back.

We had Sunday lunch as we wanted to try the food before bringing a number of guests. The service was good as was the seating. The food was very disappointing in particular the beef we were unable to eat it. We received an apology and discount but I would never return or recommend eating there again.

Nice meal but disappointing end when the bill came and they refused to apply the Early Bird discount (which was why we booked for 6pm!) because "we hadn't booked over the phone" - I'd booked online through opentable via their website. There was no mention of this strange rule anywhere and they refused to budge - even still cheekily adding their own service charge to the final bill. It wasn't a particularly nice start to the evening with attitude like that.

I'm usually wary about going out for a Sunday Roast, they never compare to my Mum's!
However, I went for Sunday lunch at The Foresters with my best friend and it has definitely changed things for me - it was absolutely delicious and the portions were huge. I had a food baby the size of a 7 month pregnancy by the end of the meal and it was so worth it.
I shared the camembert with my friend to start (fantastic chutney), had the pork belly roast lunch with a side of pork & herb stuffing and cauliflower cheese, and for dessert shared the sticky toffee pudding with my friend - which was also incredible.
I will be coming back!

We've been meaning to try The Foresters for years - finally got round to it for a girls' Sunday lunch. The roasts were delicious and huge! Unfortunately they had run out of one of the two vegetarian options but promptly offered a complimentary glass of wine as compensation! It was really busy but the staff was very friendly and attentive. A great place for a relaxing lunch and a few bottles of wine - would definitely go back.
