Met family members at the Forresters for Sunday lunch. None of us had been there before so didn't know what to expect. We were all bowled over by the quality of the food, the selection and the very pleasant service. Would be happy to recommend this to anyone and will return when in the area again.

This evening my sister and I enjoyed a delightful meal at the Forresters. Our only regret was that after two courses we were too full to sample the desserts. The menu offered a tempting range of possibilities, and there was a good choice of wines by the glass. The relaxed and friendly atmosphere was combined with attentive table service.

Dropped in for lunch and it was very tasty. Excellent partridge terrine and warming parsnip soup and the best sweet potato,fries ever. Will definitely be back for dinner. Warm and friendly environment. Then walked around the friendly village. Raines the ironmongers is a great shop - an Aladdins cave that you don't expect in such a small town.

We are a young couple, stayed here last year, had a nice room, though it was a bit noisy from the road and would have benefitted from a bath in the mezzanine shower room. We stayed for food, and it was AMAZING French cuisine!! Truly amazing!!! Also nice walks in the area, the locals so friendly, just chat to them...
