4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Great find. This is a great place to stay. The staff are very friendly and the place has a nice ambiance. Some of the decor is a little tired but that is soon forgotten when you go to the restaurant. The food is as good if not better than I have tasted anywhere and all at a very reasonable price.... More

Just back from another fabulous stay at the Forresters. We stayed in room 5 this time but have been in a variety of rooms on previous visits, they are all decorated and equipped to the same high standard and are quirky and extremely comfortable. Yes in the front rooms you can hear some noise from the busy bar and restaurant... More

We had recommended this Restaurant to friends who adore good food, we were not disappointed the food is still excellent, as good as I remember. The chef has talent and imagination just loved it. Try the twice baked Gruyere souflee to die for. Special thanks to Glen what an adorable young man everything a bar manager/waiter / front of house... More

We stayed last weekend, at short notice, what a pleasure it was! We were given room 6, the mattress and pillows were new the linen and towels were beautifully laundered and there was a generous amount of toiletries. Nothing was too much trouble for Franck and his staff. We will definitely return!

Came here as Newcastle was full with rugby fans . Amazing staff and the best food ever. Would recommend this place to everyone. 5*. I had the fillet steak with blue cheese sauce and the house cut chips for mains and it was to die for. I have to write 200 words so please excuse this last bit x

We have just returned after a 2 night stay at the forresters, we had a lovely room, comfy and decorated nicely, added extras like adding wine glasses when they saw we had bought a bottle of wine was a nice personal touch, bit noisy due to being over a bar but this didn't bother us, very welcoming people very nice...

I stayed for two nights and it was a pleasure. Very organised and friendly staff who delivered my bags to my room before I arrived. A good room with excellent sized bathroom. Shower powerful and hot, just what I needed after walking miles of Pennine Way. The food was delicious and lots of choice for breakfast including pancakes which I... More

Stayed one night, Room 1, a small twin, rather dark. Excellent shower, small television, reasonably comfortable beds. Let down by a quiet but audible pumping noise all night. Not sure what it was but was annoying, and would have been very annoying without ear plugs. On the plus side, the evening meal was very good, perhaps a little expensive, but... More

Had a two night stay and everything was fab. Lovely bedroom and shower room. Breakfast exceptional. Staff were hard working and very friendly. Def would book a return stay 😀 we were visiting family in the area so didn't have a chance to try the restaurant but having read the menu would def be something to try next time.
