First visit to the Foragers. Food was very tasty and well balanced.We were there on a quiet night. Service was very attentive. Portions are very generous so bring a good appetite. Interesting choice of beers. Parking is tricky so allow plenty of time. Best bet is to park in the Multi-Storey in Christopher Place and walk down

There is always an interesting selection of beers to be had at the Foragers. The menu is not extensive but the food is excellent. I had the belly of pork that came with crackling to die for. My wife had a very succulent burger. Great atmosphere and friendly staff make it a delight.

Attended The Foragers as part of a family group of 7 adults and 2 children. The service was attentive, courteous, helpful and tolerant of the boisterous (at times) children. The food was superb - the roast beef was plentiful and beautifully cooked whilst my belly of pork was quite simply the best I have ever eaten. A good variety of... More

We had a wonderful festive evening at the Foragers on Christmas Eve. The pub was cosy and had a lovely atmosphere. Food was really tasty and the service excellent and very friendly. We had been meaning to go here for some time and will definitely return soon. My only criticism would be that the menu is not great for vegetarians,... More

A very picturesque pub near the town centre, far enough away so you can enjoy a drink in a relaxed atmosphere. The food is topnotch if you decide to have a meal. Id recommend for friends and/or family even.

Delicious meal in cosy pre Xmas surroundings: the Verulam Arms combines a proper pub with great, interesting food. Waitress was knowledgable and efficient energy with a large table of festive revellers to serve at the same time as us. We will return

I booked a table for 10 for a Christmas reunion meal, tempted by the festive menu, although I hadn't been to the Verulam Arms for about a year. It was wonderful. The food was a delicious mixture of seasonal flavours, in generous portions, and with the unique elements that the Foragers are known for (homemade sloe gin, for example). It... More

We went to The Foragers yesterday to celebrate my dad's birthday - as soon as we arrived the service was brilliant. The pub was busy as it is Christmas but they quickly moved us to a quieter area of the pub to eat. The food was the best pub food we've had! Highly recommend the pork belly. Thank you to... More
