We visited with the whole clan on Sunday lunchtime. They had a party in from church (wedding/confirmation etc) so were too busy to take us for an early lunch but were happy enough to slot us in a little later which was helpful.

The remaining rooms weren't too large - the main bar area was quite full at the time - but they had reserved us too tables in the adjoining room which allowed the younger children to play around a little without bothering anyone.

This is an old English pub with flagstones and an open fire - which was lovely if you know that's what to expect.

The food (Sunday lunch in the most part) was well cooked, the gravy was delicious, and it came with enough vegetables to fill us all up. There were around 4 other options all of which were available in half portions for the kids. I could recommend the fish and chips as the batter was wonderful.

The food service was quick and the staff very pleasant although the drinks service was slow due to how busy they were. The range of real ales was good too.

It's also a community run venture so well worth supporting.

My family and I visited the Foresters arms for Mothers day and it was perfect! The pub has a real cosy feel with a crackling wood fire and has all of the charm you would expect from a pub in the Yorkshire Dales accompanied by beautiful scenary.

The food was very well presented and had a really good menu and was very good value for money with great service. We even received chocolate gifts with it being mothers day. Sometimes the little touches and good presentation go a long way. Would highly recommend especially as dogs are allowed!

Visited here for Sunday lunch and was so disappointed. The country pub feel is great and the beer was tip top (hence 2nd of the 2 stars) but the food was awful. We had the traditional Sunday lunch with tough beef, lumpy mashed potatoes, tasteless veg and oh dear the yorskshire pubs! These had the shape and texture of a cheap cake sliced and soaked in gravy. Anyone from the area would be ashamed for these to bear the great name of Yorkshire!

Go here for a pint but avoid the Sunday lunch unless things improve!

We have just spent a wonderful evening at the Forresters Arms. Wonderful pub, very welcoming and friendly staff, excellent food and a truly wonderful dining experience. We can't wait to return again, we enjoyed it so much we have booked again for next week!. We would highly recommend this pub to anyone, a real gem in the Dales. Thank you for an excellent evening.
