ABOUT

Take a short stroll over the bridge from Kingston-upon-Thames where you’ll find The Foresters in Hampton Wick, a traditional English pub with an award-winning reputation.

Established in 2005, we have been named ‘Best Pub’ by the Time & Leisure Food & Drink Awards for the past three years. We were also recently awarded the title of ‘Best Sunday Roast’ in the borough by Totally Richmond.

Whilst we don’t necessarily like to think of ourselves as a ‘gastropub’, The Foresters’ restaurant focuses on providing an exciting local menu of modern British cuisine, all washed down with a superior range of beverages in the form of real ales, craft beers, wines and spirits.

With a friendly atmosphere, an independent style and a real passion for food and drink – ours is the kind of pub locals love and visitors wish they could take home with them.

EAT

We love food! What goes on in our kitchen is a big part of our pub’s personality.

Led by head chef, Nicholas Allen, people come from Teddington, Twickenham, Richmond and beyond to sample our mouth-watering menu. Using the finest local ingredients along with a dash of creative flair, we produce dishes that take traditional pub grub to the next level.

Our restaurant menu represents the very best of modern British cuisine, with a fondness for all those pub classics that have made our country great.

We have a fantastic relationship with the top local suppliers in the area, ensuring that the produce used to create our dishes is fresh, free range, sustainable and of the highest standard.

The regularly updated menus offer something for every occasion – whether you’re looking to take on our award-winning Sunday roast, host a business lunch or join us for dinner and drinks, we can cure your craving.

Scroll down to take a look at what’s on our main dinner menu along with PDFs of all our food menus to download and view.

Please be aware that children of any age are allowed in all areas of the pub until 4pm. After 4pm, the bar area is restricted to over 21s and only children over the age of 10 are permitted in the restaurant and outside areas.

Unfortunately, due to the size of our pub we can not accept prams and pushchairs without prior notice but highchairs are available, please let the member of staff know when booking.

DRINK

When it comes to our drinks selection, just like our food, we value quality above anything else. Our bar is always well stocked with bevy of beverages for every mood and preference and we pride ourselves on providing a proper British pub experience to our punters.

If you're partial to a pint, we have three well maintained ale pumps. For those not quite sure which one to sample, you can try a third of each for the price of one pint. Or if you're looking for something lighter, we serve five premium lagers and Aspalls cider is available on draught.

In the mood for a glass of red, white or rosé? Our wine selection changes annually - for special recommendations, ask us about our wine of the month. All wines are available by the glass and can be sampled upon request.

If you're looking for bubbles, ask us about our Spanish Cava, New Zealand sparkling wine and Champagne - also available by the glass.

Never let it be said that our pub lacks spirit - from Vodka, Gins, Bourbons and Rum, our ever-changing spirit selection is second to none. All served with a slice of the friendliest service this side of London.

Come rain or shine, we'll be here, so what are you waiting for? Come and enjoy a drink with us. Pull up a stool, grab a nice cosy armchair by the fire on those winter nights or bag a deckchair outside when the weather's fine.

Tempted? See you at the bar!
