About Foresters Arms in Frogham
The Foresters in Frogham, Fordingbridge! Known locally as the donkey pub, the Foresters Arms in Frogham has always been a New Forest favourite. The look is comfortably eclectic – a mix of tartan and exposed brickwork, antlers and lampstands, in-vogue character cushions of Geisha faces and traditional pews, old pine tables and auction finds. Sounds dandy meets country, quirky and fun? Oh, it is.
We are following the government guidelines- tables must be a maximum of 6 people and you must wear a mask when you are in the pub, except when you are seated at a table to eat or drink.
First pub visit after lockdown. Felt very comfortable with the COVID arrangements.Plenty of space between tables in the garden.
Good to see a more varied and extended menu since we were last there. Great food and great ‘covid’ organisation with booking, seating and serving etc. The staff are helpful and very friendly, we’ll definitely be back now we’re more local
Beautiful setting and beautiful food.
Great service and friendly staff. Really tasty food. Easy to understand covid instructions on the premises.
Great friendly staff
Tables were allotted but not to good for eating if you had a picnic table. A little supprised to find service change already added to bill. I know bit was discretionary but embarrassing to remove it.
Great service and good covid procedures in place
Fantastic country pub - covid safe and still a great atmosphere and extremely delicious food. Highly recommend! We will be back!
I was really disappointed when we arrived we were directed to a table in the shade we asked if we could sit in the sun (as it was so warm and in the shade I was freezing) and the lady very bluntly told us no and that everyone had asked that question and it was too much moving around. When looking around there was 9 tables in the sun that were empty. We decided we would just have our drinks and go to a different pub to have food instead, whilst drinking our drinks (30 mins) two tables became occupied and the rest sat empty. We would have spent a lot more money at your place had we been spoken to better and at least felt our wishes had been considered.
We love the Foresters. They’ve got a wonderful garden to spend a relaxed few hours sitting under the trees and festoon lights. Food and drinks are good and we found everyone to be really friendly and helpful. Very dog friendly also!
Great evening! Great service! Great location! Thanks to the Foresters team.
Love the pub and the staff are really friendly and professional too. So glad you are open again
Lovely pub in the New Forest. Really hard for pubs to operate as they have to at present but the team did a great job. Food was delicious!
excellent lunch, thank you!
Fantastic meal- well organised and socially distanced in the garden- lovely fresh food. Thank you.
I realise they haven’t been opened for awhile but service really wasn’t great. We waited over 20 minutes from saying to the lady taking our drinks order we were ready to order food and we only then got served because we asked again. We sat with empty glasses for about 20 Minutes also. Our intention was to stay for dessert but we had already been there for nearly two hours, we were cold and wanted to go home.
Super efficient service and felt very well organised in Covid times. Great food and lovely to see the donkeys out front.
Lovely food, lovely staff. Not the easiest serving lots of people outdoors in the cold!
Its hard to have 'atmosphere' in the garden but it was a lovely to be back at a pub again and the food was lovely!
Friendly professional team. Food selection was great and we were very pleased with the quality. Will definitely book again, well worth it.
It was the opening day after lockdown so the place was finding its feet. The meal was excellent - when it came - but there was a long wait. The garden was ok but the table offered was pretty basic. We love the Foresters and will definitely come back but it wasn't the best time we've had there. Understandably, they are building back.
Excellent organisation first evening post Lockdown 3. Tables well spaced and prompt friendly table service. Booking preferable prior to visiting as track & trace details need to be logged - saves time if you register before your visit - you can use the App and scan code too. Have a great visit!
I have been coming to the Foresters for 30 years now so i've seen it change a lot over the years. Jade and her team are always welcoming and the pub serves great grub in a really comfortable atmosphere.Planning to return as much as possible!
A rural situation with friendly and helpful staff. A big garden with sheltered areas and plenty of tables.A good place to stop after walking in the New Forest.
