Came here for dinner and drinks with work friends. Fun night and good atmosphere. Decent selection of beers of tap. Good cheap pub feed options. Chicken wings were great and good chicken parmis.

Does get crowded, but still a pretty cool pub, especially later in the evening (and before the lock out laws take hold). Good selection of beers, and some decent beats as well.

Popped into The Forresters for some food on the way to a Sydney FC game and was throughly disappointed - ordered two steaks with pepper sauce and both came with gravy. To the pub's credit they provided two free ciders out of goodwill but despite this, the steak was tough and flavourless and the chips were dry and could have been from the frozen aisle of any supermarket. Could have got a much better meal for much cheaper elsewhere, especially in Surry Hills where there's so much competition. In summary - The Forresters is probably okay for a beer or two, but not if you want anything else.

Called in with work colleagues after doing a training course in the area. The beers were good with plenty of variety, the food & pizza was very good, and the staff & general ambience made for a good night. Three big screens with plenty of sport to watch.
