So helpful because I follow a fodmap diet and couldn't have some foods. Cooked a separate meal for me. Friendly, love dogs, and dealt with my sudden fear of being in a crowded environment. As long as you warn them, can cater for you.

A newly-renovated traditional pub with excellent food, wine and well-cellared beer. The dining room is less characterful than the bar but is quiet and has a pretty wood-burning stove. The menu is small because the food is freshly-prepared from local ingredients and is excellent without being over-the-top. The staff are welcoming, helpful and engaged. We’ll be back again soon.

This is our 3rd time having a meal at the foresters Arms and we were a bit disappointed with the food the runner beans were old and stringy , the beef was very fatty , we did not get ask if we would like any horse radish or mint to go with our meals , let's hope it gets better the next time we go .

Yorkshire pubs scene has a very disappointing vegetarian or vegan mindset. However the foresters arms in Kilburn actually has a vegetable roast Sunday lunch. Its one of very few in Yorkshire that does this and its gorgeous too.

The food was only luke warm, one slice of thin roast beef, watery gravy and this cost £16.95, not value for money at all, the menu had a trio of meats, roast beef, pork and chicken for the same price as the roast beef lunch... so how can you only end up with one slice of meat, the serving staff were very nice and although the meal was below par, l left a tip for the staff, the kitchen cook, needs to up his game.

As a Ceoliac I was well looked after. 2 choices of gf beer. You don't find that in many places and locally brewed too. Clearly a popular place and great vibes around the staff. Plenty of them too. The food was beautifully cooked and presented. Well worth a visit.
