Sharing made it more sociable and fun. Chef came out at the end to make sure we enjoyed it which... read more

The Forrester was recommended by my b&b, so I thought I would try it for my my birthday meal on Halloween. It was a warm and welcoming place and my steak was lovely + the drinks . I would quite comfortably eat and drink in here again.

Quite a few bits to the menu which confused us a little but people ordered burgers, steaks and tapas from our group and everyone enjoyed the meal. Huge portions which managed to fill the... More

Thinking it might be crowded and noisy we tried it any way and it was excellent. We were directed upstairs from the bar to the restaurant and... More

My dad and I have been here many times for food. We normally opt for the burgers which are superb.....but the smell of the tapas food is always immense

Our landlady wasn't sure about recommending this place but we assured her afterwards that she could safely do so. The food was lovely and my partner said it was one of the best meals he's ever had - and this takes some doing as we have rarely had a bad meal. They have a good menu and also do tapas... More
