Extensive gardens and outstanding views

Foresters Arms is set in spectacular mountain scenery with extensive grounds. Picturesque gardens attract many bird species, including sunbirds, paradise flycatchers and the elusive narina trogan. Cradled amid a forest, it is a haven of timeless elegance, cosy in winter and cool in summer.

The terrace overlooks the gardens and valley and the country atmosphere echoes throughout the hotel in the lounge, restaurant and bar, with charming furnishings, old prints and log fires for chilly evenings. The communal areas feel cosy and old world, with a vibe that is never stuffy.

Forester's Famous Food

Every day, the famous Foresters Arms restaurant serves delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner. Snacks, cream teas and speciality coffees are available throughout the day.

Breakfast can be enjoyed in the restaurant or on the terrace. Choose from a variety of fresh fruit and juice, home-made muesli, bread, scones and muffins, as well as traditional, freshly cooked English breakfast.

Lunch is a selection of home grown salads and freshly baked breads, imaginative hot dishes and tempting puddings.

Dinner by candlelight is a highlight of the day. Every evening, our chefs create an exquisite, light-handed, seven course taster menu, which cleverly combines traditional and modern flavours and includes fresh salads, homemade bread and rather special ice-creams.

All food is prepared and served with care and pride.
