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!

Friendly pub with decent food.

Had lunch here on a busy bank holiday weekend. Nice beer garden (despite being beside a road). The food was standard pub fair, well executed. Excellent value with big portions. It is in a very central location too.

Food is not served after 9pm, no good if you are travelling down on a Friday. Apart from that the outside area is good. A decent pint served.

Myself and my wife and daughter had been to this pub 3 times in the summer and had very good food. On the 4th visit we took my son and daughter-in-law and our 2 grandchildren saying how good the food was. Most of our orders came out missing things and I asked for newpotato with my steak. Of which I... More

Waited over an hour to be served, the food was good when it arrived. We ordered the steak and Guinness pie and the salmon. We sat down at 7pm and our meal arrived after 8pm.

We were made welcome enough by the bar staff at The Forester's Arms, but the locals clearly weren't too keen on sharing bar space with 'out-of-towners'. Maybe we picked the wrong time of day, or maybe we didn't get the memo that in this small, (mostly tourist paid for) town we should have been elsewhere.................we'd try another pub next time!

Stopped in Brockenhurst for a long weekend and had a look around. The Foresters Arms was certainly the most popular, both with locals and visitors. Its a proper pub with no airs or graces but we enjoyed the atmosphere and the outside tables to sit in the sun.
