Description: Hampton Wick���s The Foresters, situated on the High Street, brings a splash of Parisian style and Brooklyn charm to the traditional neighbourhood pub-restaurant. The wonderful d��cor, incorporating open fires, cosy leather sofas and exposed brick walls meet with a no-children-under-ten policy to create a sophisticated, grown up feel that���s still fun thanks to Sunday evening���s Big Quiz (with a ��50 cash prize), a regular geeky games nights, featuring all your favourite classic board games, live music performances on a Saturday as you dine, and a generally relaxed, convivial atmosphere created by both staff and guests. The Foresters��� modern British menu changes every month, the chef���s skills and imagination supported by seasonal produce fresh from the market, allowing for delectable daily specials. The kid of local most Londoners must dream of finding, The Foresters, with its Sunday roasts and friendly feel, well stocked bar and blackboard offerings, is a real must-visit pub. Children must be over the age of 10 to dine in this restaurant.

I visited here on Tuesday, my sister had her small wedding reception in this quirky place! The staff were all really welcoming and the place itself is a feast for your eyes, you find yourself zoning out and taking in all the character and well thought out decor! The food was AMAZING!! We had some super yummy olives when we... More

Went here for the first time and had a Sunday roast... It was excellent. Staff were very welcoming, friendly and attentive. Both the beef and the chicken roasts were fantastic. The chicken especially was incredibly moist. Potatoes were nice and crispy (so often a let down on a pub roast), Yorkshire puddings were big and crisp, beautifully seasoned swede, nice... More

Visited the restaurant on spec and were quickly offered a great table. Served by a guy (Martin) who was a great mix of friendly and efficient. Food was delicious - I went for some of their sausages, which were excellent. Nice selection of reasonably priced wines. Looking forward to going back again soon to start working my way through their... More

First of all, the Foresters looks great, abundance of hanging baskets, lots of outdoor seating and it looks really well maintained. Visited here on 7th August with my partner. Tried to eat here a few occasions but always seem to miss the kitchen times. May be an idea for the owners to put the restaurant opening times up on website.... More

I speak only for the restaurant, and I have to compliment them on the reasonable selection of dishes which have been on offer when my wife and I dined there (several times now). The food was excellent quality, and the restaurant staff friendly and helpful BUT absolutely EVERTHING was served on a slab of slate! Oh dear, and how pretentious,... More

We had two memorable meals in July. That is - we liked it so much the first night that we returned next day. Service very friendly, food excellent. We made the mistake of buying wine without checking the price on the wine list. Take care on this one. Atmosphere was very good too.

Squire her down to the Forrester's for a candle lit supper. The team were exceptional, attentive and humorous - attention to detail in all matters was evident and gratefully received. In fact they were professional and charming beyond our expectations. What a change - restaurant standard service & food for pub prices and not the other way around! Over lay... More

Came across The Foresters by chance as the lunch venue with friends was closed. Fantastic, attentive, very friendly service. Really great, creative and imaginative food. Highly Recommended.

Came here with girlfriend and both sets of parents after a long day at the Hampton Court flower show. The initial welcome was great and the service remained excellent throughout. Menu was standard pub food BUT with excellent twists and done perfectly. The whole evening was really pleasant and I could not recommend this pub/restaurant more highly.
