I was told I could sit at our table (I was a bit early) but I wasn't told where it was. At the same time I asked for tap water & glasses which never materialised. We were a group of 10 & we all enjoyed our food very much

Good food and service! The pricing structure for food was slightly odd compared to what I have seen in other similar places and the fish of the day although being very nice was over priced for what it was and could have done with a side other than new potatoes

Food was freshly prepared, service was very good staff very helpful, we were not rushed. Although the GF menu was sperate my sister in law had some good choices from the main menu. We found the whole experience of dining in the Forester was very good.

We booked a special buffet for a private party, and the staff team worked really hard to ensure that all went well for our event.

Very busy Easter bank holiday Saturday, also 60th birthday party. Service started off a bit shaky, improved as we went along. Food excellent as always, nice staff. We will be back next year, as we live in Spain, we always call in when we visit. Gracias

Came highly recommended. Booked as a party of 6 for a special birthday. Although busy as clashed with Mother’s Day, we waited 75 to get 2 starters - both soups, both only luke warm. Should have complained at time but didn’t want to ruin special occasion. Custard also cold on deserts. We are not in the habit of complaining. Staff apologised just before soup arrived and gave us some bread to keep us going. They apologised again when we settled the bill stating there was a miscommunication with kitchen? Would still return at a quieter time when more extensive menu available to try it again.

Booked a table for four - three meat-eaters and one veggie. Something for everyone on the menu and everyone happy. Food came promptly and the service was courteous. A very pleasant evening was marred only by one of our party finding a fingernail in their drink on the very last sip. Our waiter was called over to the table and though extremely apologetic, didn't really know what to do in the situation. Maybe the waiting staff need a little more information/training from the management team on how to handle a situation like this should something similar arise in the future? Just a suggestion.
