Name typo - there is only one "r" between the first and second syllables! There was no real ale on Father's Day - disgraceful let-down.

After a fairly uneventful walk around Swinley Park and the massed ranks of housing that is Martins Heron, the Ramble Then Lunch team arrived for lunch at The Royal Foresters.

The RF is a pretty large Beefeater, with a Premier Inn attached. Not hugely busy, but then its a lunchtime in November. GK Abbot and London Glory available. Barman waxed lyrical to us about his ales, his love of bitter and his minor obsession of keeping his salt dispensers full and running. He regularly checked on us and provided an excellent service. Beer was fine, although this fine-ness was only achieved after letting it warm up for ten minutes. Why do so many pubs serve their real ale at something approaching lager temperatures these days. British beer is meant to be at room temperature and its flipping annoying when it isnt.

As its a Beefeater, there was a vast choice on the menu. We went for the lunchtime value menu pie, steaks, salads, etc and we were all satisfied with what we had. Beefeaters serve bottomless chips, i.e. you can have as many as you like, but I was never offered any more or told how to do so.

Dont get me wrong though, the Royal Foresters was a perfectly fine lunch stop. Not a drinkers pub, but then it doesnt pretend to be, and its a damn sight better than quite a few establishments weve visited.

I'm a Real Ale drinker & I have to say that the Foresters Cask Ales are some of the best I've ever had!! I now visit several times a week & the beer & service is always brilliant. Took my family for a meal there the other day & everything was faultless! A great pub despite the Branding.

This pub COULD be great but ultimately ruined by co-orperate ownership, with beefeater logos plastered over the walls and tacky premier inn extensions. To say that though all credit to the bar manager who definately knows his stuff. Typical greene king ales OSH, Morlands Original and abbotts all well kept. really lovely building was told its 200 years old but that could be wrong. Best kept pint in ascot if you can get past its faults.

Dirty, dirty, dirty pub. Whatever you touch you will stick to. Apart from the beer, which you shouldn't touch anyway.
