Review on The Foresters At Yoxall

New owners have recently arrived to breathed new life into this Staffordshire village watering hole, The Foresters At Yoxall, and it now sets out it stall as a contemporary pub/restaurant with a flexible attitude to things. The interior is spread over three rooms, filled with a mix of sofas, plain wood table and chairs, and there's seating outside for those who want to eat al fresco.

At lunchtime, the kitchen sends out a range of sandwiches, paninis and rustic rolls, along with honest gastro pub dishes (smoked haddock with poached egg, wild mushroom and black olive fettuccine, seared lamb's liver with bacon and mash, for example).

Dinner is a more elaborate affair that might commence with slow-roast belly pork and pineapple relish or smoked tuna loin with tartare crème fraîche, before saffron-marinated sea bass and scallops with crab risotto and salsa verde or Barbary duck breast with creamed Savoy cabbage, Parma ham and roast clementine. To finish, check out the handcrafted Staffordshire cheeses; otherwise, go for something sweet such as white chocolate mousse with poached strawberries or blueberry and Cassis tart with pistachio ice cream.

    I ordered leek and chicken pie it looked nothing like a pie the pastry was terrible there was no sauce it looked and tasted as if it had been microwaved. I will not be ordering chicken and leek pie again.

    Lovely evening!

    We took two friends to eat at The Foresters last night and had a brilliant evening. The staff were very attentive but without being intrusive. The food was lovely with lots of choice and at a very reasonable cost. We wish the new owners well as they certainly deserve success in fact we are booked to go again next week. Highly recommended so do give it a try and you won't be disappointed

    Lovely Meal

    We were told since the change of ownership the food is not as good but how wrong they were. We had a brilliant meal and lots of it, lots of choice to choose from and service really good. We can highly recommend

    I was taken to this establishment by friends and to say that I was surprised is an understatement!! The atmosphere was very comfortable and easy, the food was Gastronomic and the prices very reasonable!! I intend taking my friends and family there again in the near future.
