Slightly unprepossesing exterior but a real gem. Ate there twice whilst staying in the area and it was real five star food, freshly prepared on site. Some good well known dishes but also something a bit unusual. The marzipan and amaretto ice cream was so good!

Eaten here a few times but first time reviewing the food. Despite being the only ones in the restaurant (the wind was too nippy to eat outside!) the place had such atmosphere, so French and lots of interesting things to look at on the walls etc. I ordered a veggie option, although I am a meat eater and was very...

We stayed for Easter 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Hospitality impeccable, superb cuisine, immaculate room & ensuite, plenty of choice at the bar. Our waitress went the extra mile to make our 4year old a "chocolate burger" from icing to entertain him! Will certainly return and recommend.

Mystery tour with lunch planned and delivered by my wife Alison. Even had some sunshine, arrived at The Forresters Hotel & Restaurant. Went in, not sure if the restaurant was open, but immediately reassured it was and serving lunch, took a table by the window because it was a little too windy to sit outside and not quite warm enough....

Not the most beautiful restaurant but the food and service were brilliant: freshly prepared imaginative food and lots of it. Booking needed and plenty of parking on the high street. Highly recommended

Visited for one of the Forresters' French casserole nights...French atmosphere and absolutely authentic and delicious French food. We has two quite different meals, each superb: a fish stew with mullet, prawns, sea bass and mussels; and slow cooked roast brisket in a wonderful sauce. Service was really friendly...lovely folks running the place. Truly excellent. (note...we were staying elsewhere, but have...

Happened to stumble upon this French restaurant in the heart of Middleton Teasdale and was a little stunned. It was quiet on a week night but could imagine it busserling on a weekend. I can honestly say it was one of the best steaks I have had in a long time excellent quality of meat and potions were large. Children's...

We were recommended this superb French restaurant in the beautiful village of Middleton in Teesdale, initially for the partridge breast that we were told is divine. But we came to the Moules et Frites night instead(partridge another time). I have Provencale and, having eaten muscles a thousand times before, must say these were the best. I had cauliflower with white...

The food at the Forresters is amazing. Middleton is so lucky to have this little gem in it's midst. The Beef Bourgignon is beautiful and the homemade desserts and chocolates are delicious. I've been a few times and have never been disappointed.

We were not too familiar with the area so checked out the local eating places on trip advisor. Mostly good reviews for this restaurant and we were not disappointed! There was a good selection of dishes at very reasonable prices. I went for the beef bourgeon which was served with a good selection of veg. It was absolutely delicious and...
