Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Lovely pub with great garden area and parking. We came for Sunday lunch. The bar itself is warm and cosy with seating at the bar area which is nice. The restaurant in the bar area has a nice atmosphere and there is another area to...eat which feels more secluded. The menu is varied and food was delicious. Try the mackerel pate so fresh and tasty as were the scotch egg. We ordered the lamb for our lunch which was amazing with fresh veg. The staff were very efficient and friendly with a special mention to Amy who I believe has only been working at this pub and restaurant a few weeks. A lovely place to visit. We shall be back.More

Used to be one of our favourite pubs in the area with great food including their fantastic fish and chips BUT not anymore something has changed possibly the Chef! The fish batter was very artificial and not professionally prepared, mass production! , the chips were...not as good as before and not much of it ! The Ploughman dish was poorly prepared with small piece of Brie and a tiny piece of cheddar cheese with slices of ordinary bread not even soda bread and a bit salad ! The service was very good as well as the atmosphere in the pub but please do something about your food quality to represent your reputation.More

Have been to The Foresters Arms many times, however this was our first visit since being under new management. Food was excellent and staff were very attentive. It was good to see a busy pub! Good amount of choices on the new menu. There wasn’t...a “Specials” menu which personally I’d like to see in future… but that’s the only thing! We had a wonderful evening with friends and shall definitely be returning soon!More

Used to be one of our favourite places to eat - had the best pies in Sussex by far….now only doing Chicken & Leek in puff pastry??? Menu is just the basic favourites…far better menu before. Front of house were great as usual Scotch egg...starter tasted good - but £9! With only a spoonful of hollandaise sauce….Fullers Farmshop do them twice the size for £2.75! Also had a very gloopy tasteless chowder again very overpriced. Mains were tasty, but only the chips were very good.…but for whole meal only mediocre for the price. Been coming to this pub for years and every bite has been delicious please get the old chef back…please! Left sad and underwhelmed - will start looking at trying some new places. Have stayed at the new owners hotel in Alfriston and food there was really good btwMore

For the first time in 150 years the Foresters Arms is now owned by an entity other than a brewery. Seven different breweries from 1875 until the present day. We were very impressed with our lunch , a new menu, already some changes and more...to come, and good to see Dave still there managing the place. The new owners have done a great job with the Plough and Harrow at Littlington which bodes well for the future of the Foresters. Well worth visiting and currently with seven day opening.More

The cheese ploughmans was a joke - a slither of Brie and a larger piece of cheddar - fair enough the only cheese mentioned on the menu were these two but ONE slice of fairly ordinary bread, a few lettuce leaves and small gherkins and...tomatoes…..£13, not impressed at allMore

We have had 2 fabulous meals here now. Whoever is running the kitchen really knows what they are doing. Beautiful fish and chips the first time and the pie of the day the second. Excellently well kept Longman beers (choice of 3) and a really...nice vibe about the place. Keep up the great work.More

The ladies toilets are quite small but there is another toilet outside of the pub, but is part of the pub, which may be more suitable. I'm not sure if it's ladies and gents, so best call ahead and ask for either Dave, Seb... More
