Traditional locals pub with two bars and outside patio and gardens. We serve great 'pub grub' at very reasonable prices. All major sporting events shown on Sky and BT Sport, regular live music, pool table, dart board and comprehensive jukebox. Very close to the train station and well worth a visit!

This is not a traditional pub. The lounge has been set aside for tables for eating at . The food we had was nice enough and the welcome pleasant. We probably stayed longer than was polite as it started raining and we sat there with an empty glass till it stopped, but nobody minded. I would have... read more

A quintessential British pub, perfect for a mid afternoon lunch. The food was hearty and the ale washed it down well. I would definitely return again

We ate here both nights of our stay in Brockenhurst, the food was very good and reasonably priced, staff and customers very friendly, and we noted that a lot of the locals ate in this pub so must be good. Would go again.

Took some visiting Americans out for an evening in a local pub. The Foresters Arms did the job. Traditional pub with a Lounge and a Saloon Bar.

Early Friday evening meal with friends. Simple and well cooked fish and chips with peas, lemon and decent tartare sauce. Good selection of Ringwood beers and Doom Bar on tap.

I tried to order a christmas drink and as they didn't have it on the menu they tried to charge me a price of 2 drinks which was up to £6 so way too much. I didn't want to order anything after that, lost the christmas spirit. The place looks cute though.
