We recently visited a friend in the New Forest, who took us to the Foresters Arms. With the sun out, we opted to sit in the garden which was great for the dogs to chill out too. The food, service, value for money, being dog friendly....... all accumulate to one thing... we'll most definitely ensure future walks lead to the... More

We booked in advanced for a large Birthday party of 19, we ordered our food in advanced and had people with dietery requirements which were all dealt with greatly, the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was excellent all came out at once and pipping hot which is hard for such a large party. Cannot recommend enough.

Beers served in superb condition - which is important to us. Huge portions. The burger was about £12 - but was so big that it was hard to finish. Chips if ordered on their own are about £2.95 - but you get a lot. Large garden area. Close to some superb walking.

Hi Anthony, thank you for your lovely review, we are pleased you enjoyed your meal and evening. I am aware of the men's floor boards, we have had it renovated recently and something has gone wrong with the floor, we are waiting on the brewery to send them back to re-sand and varnish them. We hope you will join us... More
