Found the hotel relatively easily, parking a little more tricky just try and grab a spot on the street. However we were greeted with a warm welcome from staff and shown to a lovely spacious clean room. Booking.com advertises a triple room as 3 single beds when in actual the hotels triple room is 1 double 1 single, be wary...

Wednesday night is quiz night here and it is plenty of fun and a great atmosphere. Prizes for the first four teams and even a little prize for the bottom team!!! They serve Thai food and it's excellent. Had a few of the vegetarian starters with a bottle of wine. This is a nice way to spend a Wednesday night.

Stayed here with my brother and sister, we're aged between 18-24. We wanted a place easy to get to and close to the tube station to get to our destination the next day which was Olympia. We paid £100 for one night for the 3 of us, so found it was a good price. The place was a 10 minute...

The Forester is a big, well-run, pleasant Fuller's pub in suburban Ealing. We had a very decent (and excellent value) Thai lunch here midweek, when the place was almost empty. We were charmingly served, and would very happily return

Staff is very cheerful and polite here, the pub itself is quite big and cosy. Candles in the evening, and guess what they use as candelabra? Yeah, bottles of all kinds. They also have tables outside. Like to spend few hours there. And also the pub closes at 1 pm, which makes it the last one open among nearby pubs

Have had a great Sunday lunch here a couple of times with family. Huge portions, really well cooked meat and lots of vegetables to choose from. Reasonably priced too. Would recommend visiting if in the area.

I visited with a group of friends for a pre-Christmas Sunday lunch. The food was lovely and the portions are huge (he child's portion was large enough)! All was well cooked and tasty. And they even did a takeaway for me to take to my partner in hospital. The Forester is a Fuller's pub which is normally a sign of...

As a family of 4 visiting London on a budget The Forester was a great find. The room we shared was clean, roomy and had everything you could wish for. Well may be a bigger TV for the children. The pub itself is warm and friendly with a number of real ales on offer. Even though last orders is 12...

This is my fourth review of the pub, this time it's about just having a pint. It's not cheap but it's a good pub. A few years ago it was just about dead. Even on a weekend there were very few customers and no atmosphere. Dean [very friendly and efficient landlord] has turned it round completely and now your lucky...

“Book as early as you can. At weekends they have a function room so can be noisy so ask for one as far away from the function if possible”
