The Foresters' owner-manager describes his establishment as a Boutique Pub, Restaurant & Hotel. This is perfectly correct in my opinion as the Saloon is small and cosy and the elegantly-tented Dining Room not much larger. Both are hugely appealing. And something of a surprise. My...More

Great little pub. Good range of drinks and food. Food is slightly over priced but very good. Would recommend trying this pub, very cosy in the winter.

Our usual Saturday night pub venue was recently closed for supper due to a private party taking up the entire restaurant, so, in desperation, I booked a table at The Foresters. This was risky - a few neighbours had said it was nice, but my...More

As a tourist, I wanted to have a traditional British pub meal. However most pubs in Kingston Upon The Thames offer either American or ethnic food. That is why I was so delighted to find The Foresters as it serves (somewhat) traditional British pub food....More

Hampton Wick���s The Foresters, situated on the High Street, brings a splash of Parisian style and Brooklyn charm to the traditional neighbourhood pub-restaurant. The wonderful d��cor, incorporating open fires, cosy leather sofas and exposed brick walls meet with a no-children-under-ten policy to create a sophisticated, grown up feel that���s still fun thanks to Sunday evening���s Big Quiz (with a ��50 cash prize), a regular geeky games nights, featuring all your favourite classic board games, live music performances on a Saturday as you dine, and a generally relaxed, convivial atmosphere created by both staff and guests. The Foresters��� modern British menu changes every month, the chef���s skills and imagination supported by seasonal produce fresh from the market, allowing for delectable daily specials. The kid of local most Londoners must dream of finding, The Foresters, with its Sunday roasts and friendly feel, well stocked bar and blackboard offerings, is a real must-visit pub. Children must be over the age of 10 to dine in this restaurant.
