What is it with this area and the need to inflict pre-school children on the drinking public - they've got McDonalds FFS why inflict your brats on the rest of us ? At least they were well behaved here and not running round screeching and knocking things over like the last two establishments.

Paid a return visit to the Forester last night, after sampling the Owl & The Pussycat, a new micropub nearby that is not yet listed on here. We sat in the middle room of 3 this time. The bar at the front was reserved for a private function, whilst some were taking advantage of the Thai food served in the room at the rear. The ale range was Fullers London Pride & ESB, Gales Seafarers, St Austell Tribute, Black Sheep Holy Grail & Castle Rock Preservation. They have now stopped serving a real cider. Has gone down in my estimation. But there is more competition locally now.

A big pub with several different bar areas, it's a Fullers pub so decent enough beer on tap, we stayed for a couple of pints and sat outside enjoying the sun, busy on a Saturday afternoon with people watching the FA cup final, prompt and polite service.

Nothing to do with the pub but if you use the benches outside be prepared to see some local "rat boys and girls" hanging around waiting for their "dodgy" friends to drive up so they can get some "gear"....adds a bit of local colour!

Beer was good, I like the Fullers seasonal ales especially Traitors Gate and Red Fox (quite into my red ales). They had an array of certificates apparently confirming the landlord’s good cellarmanship and there was plenty of space to choose a suitable table. If I were a spy trading atomic secrets with a rouge state, I would chose the Forester as a discreet but spacious boozer to exchange papers and microfilm to their agents. With rooms to hire for the night upstairs, it would also be a suitable location to inspect breifcases full of used banknotes, or spend the night with a honey trap.

What a lovely place — definitely our find of the year so far! We went yesterday, when there was a very well run beer/cider festival and craft fair, and the atmosphere was great.

In the pub itself, the service is exceptionally friendly and efficient. It’s spacious and comfortable, and there’s a decent choice of food. Perhaps the only downside is that the women’s loos, though clean and well maintained, seem a bit on the inadequate side for such a large place (though I may have missed the fact that there’s more than one).

We live on the other side of London, and we’ll definitely make the journey again. If we lived nearer, we’d be there much more often.
