Dog friendly, excellent food

Brilliant! Went as it came up on a search for nearby dog friendly pubs, but this will definitely become a regular eating place in future. Our family of 7 were given a friendly, warm welcome by landlord and staff and our chihuahua was made very welcome and given a little bowl of meat treats and water. Food was fabulous- fresh, hot, delicious and beautifully presented. Nothing was too much trouble – highly recommend

Yet another fabulous visit!

Just enjoyed another lovely family meal at the Foresters. The staff are so friendly and accommodating, nothing is too much trouble. The Sunday roast was absolutely delicious and such good value, a very generous portion of tender beef and vegetables and the home-made yorkshire puddings were to die for!
We love it here and are already looking forward to the next time! Highly recommend!


Always fab!

Really can’t fault The Foresters since Gareth took over. We’re local and it a totally different pub to a few years ago.
Always made to feel welcome, staff are always lovely and the food is amazing! We go for lunch, dinner and Sunday Roasts and we’ve never been disappointed. The chicken Sunday roast is the best I’ve ever had!!
We also recently booked half of the pub on a Saturday afternoon for our sons football team presentation. We were really looked after, the hot buffet was just perfect for what we wanted and the bouncy slide outside kept the kids entertained.
Seriously tasty homemade food with a welcoming atmosphere.


What a great place

Our first visit having recently moved into the area, we went with friends for quiz night but arrived early to have meal for two. This is a traditional style pub, comfortable, simple with very friendly, welcoming staff. We had 3 course meal deal and were very pleased with the quality of the food and generous portions at very reasonable cost. The quiz that followed was also great fun. This is a little gem of a find.


Beautiful Food. Hidden gem

Beautiful food, great service and at a very reasonable cost. First visit as just driving by, and we will definitely be revisiting soon.


Excellent dinner at Foresters

Recently took dog to vet and the smell from kitchen at Foresters was fantastic so decided had to go back. Greeted by very pleasant staff who regularly checked if we needed drinks during meal. The menu was new to me and looked great. I had starter and main, trio of garlic bread to start and Cock and Bull a pub classic for main. All family agreed their food was great as well.
Had a wonderful pale ale to wash it down as well.
Definitely going back soon for more.

Staff where very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Very busy cozy little pub will defiantly be returning highly recommend


Great all round Pub and Restaurant!

Went here Saturday to watch rugby.
The pub was buzzing with a great atmosphere.
Stayed after the game for a meal and chose from the extensive menu, which included specials on the board. (Not just your average pub grub!) Which is a refreshing change.
Thank you to the accommodating landlord who looked after us so well.
The success of The Forresters is truly well deserved!


Highly rated

Popped in for a sunday roast…..Perfect!
Chef obviously knows his stuff..clean plates all around and good service too


Good food and atmosphere

Eat here most weeks food and service and atmosphere excellent. Gareth the manager always finds us a table no matter how busy it is and never wait long for food


Best roast ever

We came on Easter Sunday
Then place was very busy so I expected it to be slow service, but it wasn’t at all
I was spoilt for choice With menu
We all had the 2 course menu
The starters was delicious
The mains was even better
I had the beef roast which was one of the best I had anywhere
My wife and daughter had the salmon and chorizo which they both said it was delicious to
I would highly recommend The foresters for a meal,


Very good pub food

We have called here several times for a drink. On this occasion we decided to try the food also, we both had Forresters burgers which were very tasty, good value and the staff are really friendly and helpful. A lovely local pub always a good friendly. Will definitely return to try other things on the menu!


Absolutely Lovely

Really good food, lovely surroundings and really nice staff.

Super dog friendly too!

Dining is popular in the evening and so it might be worthwhile phoning ahead and checking for space first.



This really is a fantastic pub.
I stay stay regularly on business locally at the close by premier inn or Brittania hotel and always come here for an evening meal.
Food quality and menu is 10/10 and local pub atmosphere, real ales and sports TV, what more can you ask?


Evening meal

Excellent olde worldly pub, excellent beer ,excellent service and excellent home cooked food , I had the mixed grill which was perfect in every aspect , the young ladies waiting on were great , looked after us very efficiently and the owner Gareth was superb as we had my son’s dog with us which they supplied food for and even an ice cream for rafters for him lol , will be going back very soon it you haven’t been give it a try it’s well worth it


What a Gem

Saw reviews on TripAdvisor and thought we would try it. Was not disappointed. Does not look fancy outside but the quality of the food could not be questioned. 4 of us ate and had 3 rounds of drinks 90 pounds the meat was cooked perfectly and the chips were something else. Lastly the atmosphere and friendlyness of customers and staff should be commended. Should be proud of yourselves.



Visited the Foresters for the first time for years as heard lots of great reviews. Visited at lunch with four of my family.
The lunch menu was clear…concise…and had a choice for every palate at a very reasonable price. The soup of the day was vegetable which was outstanding..companied with a hit baked white roll and butter. Mains included gammon.. .cheese and onion pie and steak and cheese ciabatta served with fabulous homemade chips. Absolutely wonderful for taste and price. At 2.95 for soup and 6.00 for a main you cannot go wrong! 5 stars and we shall be returning soon..thank you for the hospitality and meeting your wonderful dog…


Sunday dinner

All You Can Eat Breakfast

A lovely little cosy pub with a roaring fire that’s just started serving breakfast on Sunday mornings at 10am. We had cereal & then helped ourselves to a full English which was delicious & hot. Coffee & juice refills too! The staff were excellent & really looked after us. We’ll definitely be back. Just book a table beforehand.

Little Gem

Found when looking for somewhere relaxing to eat. The food was amazing and the staff very welcoming. Child friendly too. Will visit again.


Burns Night – Excellent

After visiting this pub many many times before and loving it, tonight totally outlived all expectations!
It was a special event for Burns Night! The meal was four courses and every part of it was fantastic! The main meal was exceptional!
The staff were great as always but I have to give a special mention to Debbie who always goes the extra mile!
Would definitely recommend a visit to this warm and welcoming pub


Impromptu stop by

Quick visit with the dog, cracking G and T, and a decent tea, good value, good atmosphere, will be back soon. Thank you


Great Food and Selection of Ales

Visited earlier this month with my girlfriend on a Tuesday , was served drinks at our table pretty quickly. I ordered off the specials board , ‘The Foresters Mixed Grill’ , the meat was very nice and quite a lot of it for the price , my girlfriend had the Salmon dish and said it was fantastic. The chips were homemade which was nice to see and they were very good too. Would definitely recommend !


An all rounder!

Amazing little pub, clean & tidy. Friendly staff to look after you & the food is gorgeous! Proper Home made chips too which is a bonus and it’s all reasonably priced! Perfect pub to visit with family, friends or your partner!
