Relaxed evening

Fantastic and attentive service, really good food, and a great selection of beers. Three of us enjoyed a relaxed evening. The pidgeon starter was excellent and the Verulam burger was great too. The menu was quite small but everything we tried was very good.

Ate here with work colleagues after recommendation. The menu was refreshingly different from anything else I've seen in the area and when the food came it was very good. They also have a good selection of beers which you can't get everywhere. Overall a great experience with great service.

We were intrigued by the fact that the chefs forage their ingredients locally, and we weren't disappointed by the results. Our starter of salmon cured in knotweed gin and served with a British 'wasabi' made of wild horseradish and ladies smock was delicious. A slab of slow cooked pork (hog) belly was tender, and accompanied by celeriac and hogweed (sic)... More

Good welcome, pleasant informative staff, delicious food and good pricing. We had one roast beef dish and one belly pork dish, the vegetables were very special. The rhubarb desert was a great way to finish the meal.

We had a great time at the Foragers. Some of the best food that I have had in any restaurant in St Albans (and ive been to most). Some really exciting dishes that you would struggle to fault. Go there but don't book my table!!
