Our second visit to Forresters for a 2 night stay, as previously excellent value for money, cosy bar and restaurant, wonderful food and perfect location. Noise from the bar in room 3 but to be expected as you are in a pub and after 11 all quiet. Breakfast is lovely. Definitely recommend.

Lovely country pub with a relaxed atmosphere, very nice beer, excellent food topped off with cosy open fires! We enjoyed the trivial pursuit questions on each table. Nice touch while we were waiting for our food. Noticed that most people had a bit of fun with them too. Really enjoyed the food!

Pleasant welcoming staff, warm friendly environment. Called in for lunch ... not disappointed. Good choice on menu. Had hot Ciabatta with beef, gravy and hand cut chips. Very nice and reasonably priced. Will call again.

We went up to our room at about 5.00pm and it was VERY cold even though they knew we were coming around 4.00pm. It seems that the noisy fan issue has not been sorted, we assumed that it was the kitchen extractor that caused the whirring/vibrating noise in room (9), but we suffered until midnight and eventually got dressed and...

We don't normally respond to comments unless we feel that they are without merit, or distorting the truth.We are obviously very sorry that your stay with us was not to the standard expected, and clearly your visit wasn't. However, to imply that we have done nothing to eradicate the fan issues raised previously is hopelessly wrong! Of the 170 reviews... More

Hi fellow travellers! My partner and I spent a lovely 48 hour mini break at the Forresters including New Years Eve. There's so much one could write about the facilities, the lovely rooms and blah blah. But this time I will simply say what draws us back to this great gem of a pub restaurant with ten guest rooms. Lots... More

Booked in with friends to celebrate new year. The room we had was great as it was outside the main part and had easy access for walking the dog. Friendly reception when we arrived from landlord and locals + other guests! roaring fire and fab food served by lovely staff. Even though the dj was a no show in true... More
