We have taken the tough decision, to do the right thing (in our eyes) and we will be closing our doors for the time being. We will shut for at least a week from today, and then will take any Government advice, or decisions as they come on a day by day basis. In the aim to open as safely as quickly as possible again.

The Foresters stance on COVID-19

Please see below our approach and policy at this unusual time. While we respect the gravity of the situation, and are not taking this lightly, we are also not over reacting and taking each day as it comes, trying to operate as safely and responsibly and for as long as we can or are allowed. The health and safety of our customers and colleagues is of the upmost importance to us. We have a strict cleaning process in place to ensure our pub remains clean and sanitised at all times, but this has been even more rigorous over the last few weeks. We sanitise all tables after use, regularly wipe door handles and conduct a deep clean of the entire venue on a daily basis. We are continuing to closely follow the advice from Public Health England and remain open for business.
