We stayed for one night only mid-week (Thurs.) on a cold and damp November day.We arrived to a warm greeting and given room 1 mentioned by other reviewers. This is not a big room but it was warm and comfortable, and clean. Dinner was a massive delight; superbly cooked French style food, nicely presented without undue elaboration so beloved of... More

Having been brought up in Teesdale and also lived in France for many years, I was both surprised and delighted when I came across the Forresters quite by chance while looking on the internet for Teesdale art and memorabilia. I have never written a review for Tripadvisor before but, having spent a truly superb weekend at this wonderful "trouvaille" I... More

We drove 100 miles to eat here and count down the days until we can come back. The service and food are exceptional, anywhere else we choose to eat we always find ourselves comparing to the forresters. Everything is perfect in the bar and restaurant, and I'm a very fussy eater! We will be back again soon!

Warm friendly & lovely ambience but the food did not live up to expectations!! Having visited France many times & hosted French families the food was not authentic... The Duck Cassoulet, dry beans & cold duck!!.... What can I say!! Staff lovely, food mediocre!!

Hi, Sorry you didn't enjoy your meal at the Forresters, although we don't have Duck cassoulet on the menu, you didn't get us mixed up with a different place? Franck More

Great hosts, lovely clean rooms, with a 'boutique' edge and excellent food too. Great prices - fab village within an hours driving from... More

Enjoyed a 2 night stay here in October. Lovely surroundings in a nice quiet little village but with plenty of amenities. The hotel had a nice friendly atmosphere and the rooms were modern and nicely decorated if a little rough around the edges. Only sampled their breakfast but it was fab. There was noise on the Saturday night till around... More

A large party (14) of us stayed the one night fort a sporting day. We had a room with a 'split level', en-suite, bathroom but all very adequate. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Great service for a superb dinner. Breakfast in the morning I can only describe as heroic. I would recommend this to anyone.

Tucked away in a beautiful part of the country is this absolute gem. Originally two pubs knocked into one its old and quirky but it has a great selection of beers both local real ales and continental, wine also. The rooms are good enough some apparently have the en suite bathroom on a different level although we didnt have one... More
