We had a fantastic family Christmas meal at the Thai Forester last year. The food was great and the service was second to none, not only did the chief come out of the kitchen to talk about the menu and some dietary requirements the waiting staff where very attentive and happy to entertain any special requests. We have also had... More

We are staying at the Forester due to the advice of friends. We have been pleasantly surprised by the delicious Thai restaurant found within the pub. Not only was the food second-to-none, the staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. We really enjoy Thai food, but after eating here, it will be hard to return to the United States--the Thai food... More

This pub is a local landmark. It is pretty much unchanged from the 1960s (hence why it's always popping up in tv dramas). There are separate bar and eating areas. The decor is authentic - lots of wood and tiles. We had a drink in the bar first before moving to the dining area where we had a lovely 2... More

Went whilst visiting family for Sunday lunch. Choice of 5 meats which were cooked to perfection and melted in the mouth. However, each piece of meat were carved with the same utensils. Vegetables were also cooked to perfection but again served by staff onto the plate with the same tongs. Off duty staff were behind the carvery counter in coats... More
