We just came back from dinner, it was excellent. That they offer gluten free fish and chips was the cherry on the cake. They were great as well as the ribs. Atmosphere is really nice and very friendly personal. Enjoyed the evening

You just don't get proper pubs like this anymore! This pub has all the offer a gastro pub/restaurant but with the feel of a classic pub. I love coming here.

Not sure I would describe this as boutique, perhaps more an old pub feel to it with some boutiquey decor. Really friendly host, couldn't do enough to make us feel comfortable. Reasonable choice of beers but this could be improved upon as could the whiskey...More

The kid of local most Londoners must dream of finding, The Foresters, with its Sunday roasts and friendly feel, well stocked bar and blackboard offerings, is a real must-visit pub. Children must be over the age of 10 to dine in this restaurant.
