I have been to the Forager twice over the last few weeks. I ate twice on a Sunday. First time my lamb shank was lukewarm. Second time my beef was piping hot and delicious. The veggies were great except for the roast potatoes. They were over cooked. The price of £13 for a roast was very reasonable and you get... More

Lovely pub on the corner, went here for Sunday lunch, great lamb roast with decent sized Yorkshires! Can't beat this place if it's sunny, they have a few pub benches out the front which is perfect for a couple of drinks in the evening.

The staff were really welcoming and helpful. The bar food menu whilst relatively limited provided a reasonable selection. We had the beef and mustard pie and it was rammed full of beef and was really good and the chicken and halloumi bun which was also good. I had the local Harvey's Ale which went well with the beef. Would recommend.

We had dinner at the Foragers last night, and the overall experience was disappointing. Some of the starters were very disappointing and a waste of money , some of the mains were undercooked, with raw doug and badly cooked... Also pretty bad customer service (our booked table wasn't ready, so we waited for ages, the lights weren't working so we... More

Love, love, love this place. They have the most friendly and professional staff. Food, especially the fish is always cooked to perfection and they do a bloody good Gin! What's not to like - oh and they are doggy friendly 😀

Unfortunately despite having eaten here many times it has really gone downhill. Our Sunday roast was the same as a kids portion in most other Brighton & Hove pubs. Undercooked parsnips. Three tiny quarters of one potato. Tasty meat but overall disappointing.

Sunday lunch destination, t's a decent enough roast however you do get the feeling from the staff that The Foragers seem to think they are somewhat better than they are. Service not so great and food is pretty average for the price. Still remain popular despite this but I won't be going back. I really didn't enjoy the experience last... More

The staff well they couldn't of made it a better visit so friendly and welcoming as soon as we had entered which was lovely. The ladies attentive though... More
