Alan Winfield left this review about The Foresters

The Foresters is a nice looking pub that is on a side street off East Hill.
Once inside there is a single room with the bar facing,the room is carpeted and has comfy bench seating and chairs to the front,there is a pool table to the rear right and a darts board to the left,there is a small area up one step to the rear left,which has tables and small stools,the TV to the front right was showing sky sports football updates.
There were three real ales on,i had a drink of Harveys Bitter which went down very well,the other beers were Adnams Lighthouse and Youngs Bitter.
I thought this was a very pleasant pub to have a drink in.

The Foresters was converted from 2 cottages in 1867 and further enlarged in the 1920’s. It is situated just off East Hill a few minutes walk from the town centre but is generally only a place that is used by locals and comes over as a sort of real life Queen Vic or Rovers Return with a good community spirit and boasting various darts and quiz teams, the trophies from which are perched above the bar canopy and on shelves around the pub.

The interior is largely knocked through U shape with a smaller room through an arch to the rear on one side. To the left of the main bar is a darts area and at the rear to the right, a pool table. A further dart board can be found in the smaller room and 3 well placed flat screen TVs cover most angles in the pub. On the whole the place is quite dated and bland with a small tiled fireplace, some old photos of the town and a small ornamental duck collection on the window sill.

Whilst I don’t use the pub very much, I was alerted by the local CAMRA rag that they have started to do local guest beers although on my recent couple of visits the regular Spitfire and Courage Best were supplemented one week by the not so local Theakstons Old Peculiar (£3.15) and the next week by Ringwood 49'er although the barmaid did tell me they do intend to get more local guest beers in over the coming months.

Overall, the pub is nothing special but it is worth the walk up the hill if you want to get away from the bustle of the town centre pubs and there are a couple of other pubs nearby to visit as part of a mini crawl, albeit you will probably find the Foresters is the best that the East Hill pubs have to offer.
