We wanted to eat here having been recommended it by several people. However, when we started to go through the menu for food, there was little choice for a vegetarian. Something heavy in cheese was the only choice. We decided to move on elsewhere where there was a better range.

In a central spot in the village. Traditional décor and feel to the place. Wasn't just tourists in there. Some outside space as well

The welcome, fun, funny, lovely welcome & service is the best in Brockenhurst. I should add I think it has the cheapest Ale too. (Certainly the best kept; tasty ale) Proper bar staff who know how to pull a pint, keep locals and holidaymakers happy. Best beer I've had in ten days!

Cycled into Brockenhurst while camping in the area and decided to stop in the Foresters for a couple of pints and some food. The pub is very busy with walkers and cyclists, but there was lots of staff working and they were very efficient. The pump ales were very good and we ordered a selection of food (burger, steak and...

Went into the restaurant area and after while a young girl acknowledged me, I said we had s table booked she seemed a bit unsure and went to her book to have a look but... More

We stopped off here for a lunch time treat.We ordered a BLT and a tuna baguette. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Can not knock the speed the food arrived however looking at other people's orders and comparing ours there seemed to be inconsistencies in quality. Our Baguette's were undercooked and the fillings sparse.Side order of chips were overcooked. Presentation... More

Came here whilst camping, sat outside with the dog. Nice food, excellent service. All in all not a bad pub :) inside seemed to be more for the locals than passing trade, young girl in a Hyundai thought the car park was a race track, not sure if she was a local or employee, if the latter, she may want...
