Description: The winds of change have hit Forresters. We are now open as a Wine Bar with several bar snacks available from a simple sandwich to salads and house specials, all at very reasonable prices. I have decided that 3 courses of fine dining isn't always the best evening out. Sometimes a prawn cocktail and a glass of wine in elegant surroundings fits the bill perfectly. So there will always be a good choice of food but no longer fine dining. Still the wonderful ambiance of Forresters Hall, always good service but now at a fraction of fine dining and pub prices. How about a cocktail to start off your evening? Or reserve our mezzanine floor for a small private party. Hire out the whole place for functions or family get togethers. Or just pop in for an alternative place for a drink. I am determined to keep both food and drink prices extremely sensible, eg bowl of chilli and a crusty baguette for £5 and spirit and a mixer for £3. Regular live music, not loud but pleasantly entertaining and enjoyable. Regular pianist on most Fridays. I hope that you will still keep us on your list of places to go and look forward to welcoming you to Forresters Wine Bar.

I have just returned from a wonderful week in Yarmouth and spent an evening at Forresters Bistro. Having read the reviews here on Tripadvisor I had high expectations and on no count did this restaurant diasappoint. We opted for the early bird menu, three courses for £14.95 which was incredibly good value for money. The ambience, service and quality of food was truly excellent and I cannot wait to repeat the whole experience when I return to the Island at Easter! Thank you all at Forresters for a fabulous meal!

Food was fresh and beautifully cooked, a good selection of wines, service was friendly and efficient. The ambience was wonderful and relaxed without being roudy. We will make this our first choice whenever we are in Yarmouth!!

Proprieters John and Amanda are a talented and incredibly professional team. Our Wednesday night dinner at Forrester's Restaurant was perfect in every way.

Above a row of shops, but a very nice double-height space once inside.
We both enjoyed main courses (one pork, one fish), well cooked and with bags of flavour. We shared a selection of very good local cheeses, which were served with slices of preserved ginger. The latter was not to my taste, but described by my wife as a stoke of genius.
Staff were helpful and very personable.
Certainly recommended.
