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 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.

You can't go wrong with a meal at The Forrester's. We've enjoyed evening meals there and most recently took the in-laws for Sunday Lunch. Always excellent food and service.

I'm really shocked to see that the Trip Advisor reviews for this pub are so variable. We moved to the area a year ago and have eaten here around a dozen times (the last time was a few weeks ago), mainly for Sunday lunch, but also one evening. The food has always been fantastic - especially the Sunday lunches -... More

I have always loved the foresters, but was disappointed with the portion sizes getting much smaller. However me and my fiancé went for a Sunday Roast dinner and were very pleasantly surprised with the meal. The food was delicious and the portion size was generous. As ever the staff were lovely, particularly the manager Martin. I hope the rumours about... More

Great looking pub really nice bar and waiting staff, but the manager/owner was so cringey, over the top and just money hungry We were disappointed by the sheer lack of food for a portion almost like kids size! 12% service charge was well worth the waiting staff, when asked do you recieve these tips in cash or in your bank...
