I had read reviews of this pub but the reality was even greater than the expectation. The menu is small but intriguing, we could have chosen each offering. There is a nice blend of the very unusual and the more conventional. The fish was excellent...More

We ate here for Sunday lunch. The service was really good, prompt but not at all rushed- the waiter knew all about the food and could answer our questions. The beer, cocktails and wine were all good, the cocktails and beer having the addition of...More

The menu was a little eclectic and the parking is pretty bad but the food was excellent. It is a great pub for foodies. I had garlic soup and roast beef. Couldnt fault either. I even asked extra bread to soak up the leftover gravy.

As locals, The Foragers is by far one of our favourites, if not are only favourite place to dine. The idea of seasonal foods and meats and a menu that changes regularly is a big draw. This is a place that is all about the...More
