...melt in the mouth amazing beef bourguignon. Steak just perfect and lamb is excellent. Everything is just fantastic the problem is fitting it all in as the portions are huge. The sharing platter for a starter is excellent (but for 4 not 2), make sure you have a small lunch (if gong for dinner) and choose if you want either... More

This was my first visit to this restaurant, and a friend recommended it to me. I was not disappointed!! The service is superb and the food excellent. Best Sirloin steak that I have eaten for a very long time! Nice touch with the handmade chocs with the bill. Price was good too! Will be back very soon :-)

I had partridge and my partner had a vegetarian option. Both were very tasty and well cooked. They came with plentiful and nicely prepared veg/chips/salad. No room for a pud. A pleasant atmosphere - you could almost be in a real French small hotel restaurant. A good selection of wines at reasonable prices although personally I'd have liked more French... More

Stayed here for 2 nights over a weekend. The room was lovely with nice decor and furniture felt very relaxed, there was slight noise from bar below but still acceptable. The staff was all very friendly and accommodating our every needs, food was fantastic breakfast and evening meal in the restaurant. Very enjoyable stay.

We were attracted to The Forresters by the good reviews and we're glad we took up the offer. Dogs were welcome so that was another plus! Liked the style of the hotel. Franck, the proprietor was very welcoming, charming, and very efficient. Our room, although not the biggest was clean and comfortable. Decoration was a bit rough and ready but... More
