The hotel is in the centre of the village and is the meeting place for all the local drinkers - until 2 to 3 am all weekend music and loud voices carry perfectly ! up to the rooms upstairs, complaining...

The bathroom in our case upstairs from the room was clean and the towels were changed every day. The food was an absolute delight everything was praised by all our group with the coffee and... More

After a previous disappointing experience (waited for lunch but the place remained shut) we decided to give the place another go..... and I am pleased I did. Excellent food, excellent service a bit pricey but worth every penny

The only problem with the accommodation is that it is a creaky old building so you can hear your neighbours in other rooms (or we could - maybe we were just unlucky!). However the food more than made up for any inconvenience of noisy neighbours, it was... More

Lovely b&b and the breakfast was very good. Some reviews say the evening meals are expensive. They're not expensive. They are utterly fantastic. If you are anywhere nearby, eat at the Forresters. And the service is excellent too.

As mentioned by a couple of reviews below, my wife and I had our wedding reception at Forresters two weeks ago. The whole experience was wonderful from the initial discussions with Franck, the degustation to select the wines, the selection of the menu (with choices - unusual for a wedding) to the reception, meal and wedding cake on the wedding...
