Went for drinks midweek. This pub is a lovely traditional drinking pub. Lisa is trying really hard shame she never receives the beer order she wants. Local residents are using the pub and we all want it to succeed but the way the pub is organised above Lisa is awful. Lisa is wonderful and deserves better!! Lisa gets 5 stars.

Just visited for a few drinks and a meal. I really enjoyed the chicken curry and husband enjoyed his pork pie. The beer was good too. Will be back soon.

Great little pub serving a selection of local beers, along with the normal euro lagers and Irish stout. The staff are welcoming and the locals friendly. The only food I've eaten here are the meat pies, which taste great - especially after 4 pints of Sarah Hughes!

This is the local we've waited twenty years for. Liz and Jim are lovely, friendly hosts and they work hard to make the Foresters a welcoming pub. It's clean and warm with open fires. The real ales are well kept and there's always something new to try. They serve good, fresh pub food and having listened to their customers now... More

If you've not been here recently, you should give it a try and you won't be disappointed. Liz the landlady, has an exemplary record in turning round local hostelries into good watering-holes with a friendly atmosphere, good real ale and home made food (no chips). There are a couple of established bitters and with new and a regular rotation of... More

Recently under new management, this lovely village pub now has 6 hand pulled bitters to choose from. This weekend it has held a beer festival with 22 different real ales to try. The pub has come alive again and I struggled to find a seat on my usual Friday night visit, even outside customers were standing on the front and... More

Liz and her team have injected a new lease of life into a pub that was desperately needing resuscitation. The previous landlord had, over a 7 year tenure, dragged a great little pub towards a near death experience (for both the pub and its customers!). The village now has a lovely clean and welcoming hostelry with a great range of... More

We used to meet there every month for lunch. We had bad reports of the landlord, now my friends will not go there. Good pub food & beer. Open fire in winter. Lots of old world charm.
