The Forester, on Leighton Road in Ealing, was the place to be on Saturday 20 April 2024, when local dignitaries came out to celebrate the pub’s new look. Local MP Dr Rupa Huq, joined local Mayor, Cllr Hitesh Tailor, to cut the official opening ribbon – before Rupa took to the decks with an impressive DJ set to get the party underway.

The Forester, a Fuller’s managed pub, has been completely refurbished with the aim of bringing together tradition and modernity. The walls and shelves are adorned with Fuller’s bric-a-brac from across the years – and the fireplace is an original feature designed by the famous Fuller’s pub architect, Nowell Parr.

On the first floor, you’ll find a beautiful private function room, boasting a large screen so it can be used to show sports too. With Sky Sports and TNT, a plethora of televisions screens inside and screens soon to be in the garden, The Forester will be the perfect destination for local sports lovers.

The Forester’s garden – which played host to yesterday’s festivities – has also been transformed and will attract customers come rain or shine, with its covered area for the colder months and a beautiful, sun-trap terrace for those golden hour pints. One element that has remained the same is the fantastic Thai food offering from chef Nok and her team in The Forester’s kitchen, and the pub’s popular carvery is still available on Sundays.

Harry Shotter, General Manager of The Forester, said: “It was great to have such fantastic support from both the Mayor and the local MP for our opening party. Who knew that MPs made such good DJs. I will definitely be inviting Rupa back to play again.

“It was a fantastic opportunity to welcome the local community into the pub and the feedback we’ve had has been really good. The Forester has something for everyone and at heart, we are a true community pub. I’m really excited about what the future has to hold.”
