We visited Forester Arms on Monday afternoon having been camping in New Forest. Just before 6pm the restaurant was full! Both the starters and the main courses were very tasty and they were generous portions too. Exactly what you like in a pub food. Majority of the main courses were less than £10.

We went in here with a view to having a meal on the Sunday night. We didnt bother after fighting our way through the public bar where everyone had obviously been drinking all day. Had one drink and got out quickly

Well kept 49er. Freindly locals happy to engage in some banter. The food, however is poor. It's a pub for drinking and watching sport in. Not one for a family meal. Sadly I tried it for a family meal....
