My wife and I recently ate here and the food was very pleasant. The chef was obviously very busy as there was a large party in, however, he found the time to come out and apologise for the slight delay we were experiencing. As a further gesture we also recieved a free starter. Overall the chef came across really well.... More

We were here for lunch which was a tasting menu and very extensive. Altogether we had something from everything on that menu so that was 3 starters, a lovely sorbet, 3 mains and 3 desserts and a choice of tea or coffee. It was fantastic and everything was beautifully presented and very, very tasty. Brilliant idea. Thank you to Emma,... More

Description
The Foresters Arms went under extensive refurbishment in September 2015 and changed under new experienced management team. The mission of the pub was to bring back a community facility and high quality cuisine. The Foresters Arms is set in the rural outskirts of Darlington Town Centre in a countryside environment. The Pub boasts generous outside space,with a alfresco courtyard, small children's play area and parking available for 30 vehicles. The interior is warming and comforting with open fire perfect for relaxed evenings and gatherings. At the Foresters our restaurant is open Tuesday to Saturday offering high quality British cuisine, Sunday opening is offering the full Sunday lunch experience. Functions are available at both inside our pub or we can offer events in a marquee in rural fields.
