A pretty good local

My wife and I go here sometimes for a chilled out drink. The atmosphere and clientele are a mixed bag on any give day, but mostly this is just a really nice local pub. It's pretty hard to get a seat for Sunday roast if you haven't booked, but the hassle is almost worth it... We had a very nice... read more

Have been to The Foragers a lot over the last 7-8 years. Loved the place - great food, great atmosphere and great value. Not this time. Some of the food was bland, the portions were reduced from before and the service was slow. We booked a specific table and didn't get it. The waiting staff had little time to go... More

In my humble opinion this is The best pub in the world and believe me I have travelled far and wide and have never found a nicer pub. It is the combination of fabulous food; both in terms of quality and inventiveness, friendly staff and the fact it is extremely close to home. But seriously for me it is the... More

We have been popping in for lunch for a while and it never disappoints. It is a great traditional cosy pub with a great kitchen serving interesting dishes. We always have a lovely friendly welcome. We are particularly partial to the moules marinière . Definitely worth a visit and worth going out of your way.

Not a bad roast dinner but it's quite expensive for the quality. The beef was a little dry and the potatoes weren't great. Also there wasn't enough gravy and the request for extra didn't arrive. On the the plus side veg was good. I was still hungry though.

Went for lunch with friends. Nice beer garden which is a sun-trap. Barman fantastic and friendly. Food not really for children but it is not that sort of place. Had drinks only. Recommended.

Not all pubs in B&H make you feel as welcome as the Foragers. The bar staff are excellent and the prices good. The food is also a treat and along with a great atmosphere this place is worth a detour

When I first moved to Brighton 5 years ago, Sunday lunch at the Foragers was very much a hot ticket with its focus on locally sourced ingredients with a good vibe appealing to hip(ish) locals and getting rave reviews. Then it seemed to slip a bit- I was one of a number who began to damp with faint praise &... More
