On our latest visit to Grassington we called in at the Foresters Arms for a swift drink before lunch as the weather had put the dampeners on our planned walk . Glad we did , as the rains got gradually worse it was plain to us that walking would be cancelled so what better to do than sit beside a... More

Excellent beer & wine prices and the menu looked good. There is a separate area for dining although you can also sit in the bar areas. There... More

This is a good locals pub that does food. The prices are more in line with something a bit more up market and the food when it arrive isn't up to this standard. My husband left a quarter of his pizza which is unheard of as it's overall taste was of sharp tomato and nothing else.

entering its a traditional dales pub complete with roaring fire and a warm welcome from the staff. A good choice of drinks and plenty of choice on the lunch menu together with daily specials. We went for the giant Yorkshire pudding with steak and mushroom filling certainly large with plenty of excellent filling together with gravy and carrots in amongst.... More

Went with friends, although it was their local. I found it friendly, the landlady and staff efficient and friendly and all of us who ate, had a good meal. I had the previously mentioned chicken which I found superb if a bit pricy. Also tried the other pubs in the village but found this one the best in a good... More

Another fabulous evening in the Foresters. A whole crowd of us ate here and everybody's food was very good. This is not an easy thing to do for a large number when people are ordering so many different dishes. We were then treated to an evening's entertainment by the very talented Steve, raising funds very capably for the Stroke Association,... More
