Fourth port of call on Saturday 18 starting at the Odd One Out, New Inn, Purple Dog and ending at the Victoria.
Haven’t been in the Foresters arms for I don’t know how long, good to see it selling the wonderful Colchester Brewery beers, my mates had the No1 I think and I had the Red Diesel, we were all pretty impressed with pub and beer. Good location near the Castle Park and East Hill and I’d definitely return. The beer quality was pretty good so a 7/10.

I visited this pub last week (23rd June 2011) and had a great time! It was an acoustic open mic night with some interesting musicians. The atmosphere was warm and friendly, I felt at home instantly. I was informed that it is under new management having recently been ruined by a weird bistro experiment that unsurprisingly failed. I didn't study the dcor I am afraid, but it was all clean and new looking, I remember that much, even the gents toilets! Staff were fantastic, the other customers were open and friendly. I will definitely visit again!

New owners who have revamped and redecorated the place entirely. They appear to be very new to the game, a bit over anxious to please and hope to rely very heavily on their restaurant trade. A complete change to the old Foresters including the clientele and I hope they succeed. We will certainly be visiting again (as it's very handy on the way home).

Very disapointing pub. Real Ale was very cold. Shame as the pub has great potential.

Relaxed, slightly scruffy round the edges place - but I like pubs like that so it's not a criticism. Feels like a locals bar but not in a cliquey way.
