Although packed to the rafters on the Dickensian Festival week end we still received a warm welcome from the Landlord when we called in for a sandwich and a pint of Old Speckled Hen. We ordered the hot beef sandwiches but were told that they had run out of all hot meats which was most surprising given the expected crowds... More

I think I would live here if I could! You will always receive the best of welcomes, no matter who is serving. If any drink is down for whatever reason, they tell you and offer something different, because they are not in the business of providing anything sub-standard. The food is made to order from scratch, just like food should... More

We had a lovely meal here. I had the home made vegetable lasagne (full of chunky veg) and my husband chose the belly of pork dish. We both enjoyed the food and found all the staff to be very friendly, we will certainly visit again when next in the area.

We try to visit once a year and this year no exception. We called in early on a Tuesday and found a lovely roaring fire. I don't have a large appetite so am always pleased to see a menu including 'smaller appetites', we both chose chicken curry and rice, no complaints here, good hearty portions. For dessert I had warm... More

We went to the Foresters Arms for a drink mid afternoon hoping they would still be serving a roast dinner, luckily they were! We received a friendly/warm welcome and the food portions were generous. Great pub, would recommend stopping here.

I have been hundreds of times to the Foresters, and there is no such thing as better service than you get here; it would just not be possible. Whenever you go and whatever staff are on you will get the warmest welcome. The food is consistently good, and I have never had anything which has not been beautifully cooked and... More

Management and staff were rude and disrespectful. Got order wrong on several occasions and when pointed this out to them there was no apology. It was too much trouble to ask for what we wanted - including tap water! Felt bad asking for vegetarian/onion gravy with our vegetarian meal. If we didn't ask for it, we think they would have...

Food excellent as was the service and the atmosphere. Nothing was too much trouble. I had the fish off the specials board but all the food we saw co img out of the kitchen looked really good. Wish we could have stayed another night and had the pizza's.

Stayed in Grassington for the weekend and eat in The Foresters Arms twice both meals were great, the slow cooked shoulder of lamb was so tender and tasty. Would return on our next visit.
