We go to this pub every year when we go to the Festival of Speed. Sadly it is shut. Thankfully there is the White Horse quite near but it doesnt have quite the same relaxed feeling - although still very good.

There is a notice outside stating that this Pub / B & B closed for business at the end of Dec 2015. The website has the same information. It is now Six month on, so the chances of it re-opening must be receding fast.

I have been to a few pubs in my time (!) and this one is one my favourites! Food was delicious, ale fresh and service excellent - I only wish I lived closer! The landlord also showed me around the accommodation and the rooms look charming. They are well decorated and very clean. I am looking forward to booking an... More

We made a last minute decision to visit The Foresters on a Friday evening and when we arrived it was very quiet - just two other people eating and one person standing at the bar. It was our first visit and we were made to feel welcome by the staff but the place was empty and lacked atmosphere. Music was... More

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately I was not at The Foresters last Friday thus am unable to comment on certain negatives you raised in your review. That said, in addition to our range of specialist red wines such as Margaux, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Chateauneuf Du Pape and Barbi Brunello , we also stock a range of easy drinking wines.... More

Had a lovely Italian Meal last night after a very long walk with my husband and dog. The staff were very welcome greeting our cocker spaniel with a biscuit. We were very well looked after, excellent food, a lovely bottle of recommended red and our dog was happily resting underneath us. If you have a happy exercised dog and want... More

After an enjoyable walk from Graffham up the Downs and back, our group had a fabulous lunch at this super pub. We were made to feel really welcome by the cheery waitress, the gentleman Landlord, and Francesco the fabulous Italian chef who had just made a scrumptious Tiramasu! All the food was fresh, tasty and beautifully cooked. We had a... More

Just a few poeple in the place, therefore not much of an atmosphere. The service was good, although it seemed like the proprietor and the waitress were trying just a bit too hard. The Hogs Back Tea was well kept and tasted great, but it was the only real ale available. I was asked to order quickly because orders weren't... More

Thank you for your review. For the benefit of anyone reading of this review, I would like to put the reviewers comments in to perspective. Firstly we have just started to offer a 20% discount on food (except for Sunday lunch) which also led to an upturn in our wine and beer sales. We ran out of both our French... More

A warm welcome and good food await you at the Forresters, in a modern,uncluttered bar and restaurant which has been furnished with a sympathetic and tasteful eye on the past. Between us, we thoroughly enjoyed the steak,luxury burger and Cajun chicken main courses, but unfortunately had no room for puds. The chef patron is Italian and has presented an interesting... More

Stayed in Graffham so had to try the local. It has a really nice beer garden in which to relax and drink the well kept beer. Came back for a meal and the inside is very clean and well decorated. I had an Italian dish which was excellent and my wife had a chicken dish which was also very good.... More
