The Royal Foresters re­opens

Berkshire Life - - Front Page -

A re­cep­tion in the evening sun­shine for 450 in­vestors, guests and neigh­bours of The Royal Foresters in As­cot marked the re-open­ing of the pub by Oak­man Inns af­ter three years. When it closed many lo­cal res­i­dents feared that not only had their favourite wa­ter­ing spot dis­ap­peared, but that the site might be re­de­vel­oped.

Now it fea­tures a cosy fully re­stored orig­i­nal bar with two log fires, while the restau­rant has an open the­atre-style kitchen where guests can watch Head Chef, Lee McMullen, and his bri­gade cre­ate both tra­di­tional Bri­tish and Mediter­raneanin­spired dishes with a fo­cus on fresh and sea­sonal in­gre­di­ents.

Out­side, guests can re­lax over a wide range of drinks (in­clud­ing craft beers from the Wind­sor & Eton Brew­ery) in the beer gar­den and ter­race.
