Escape the bustle of Colchester high street by stepping into the welcoming Foresters Arms. Family-owned and with a village-pub ambience, this recently refurbished establishment houses a cosy and bright interior as well as offering outdoor seating - perfect for watching the world go by.

Serving a variety of homemade treats, The Foresters menu is ideal at any time of the day. I couldn't resist choosing something from the delightful selection of homemade pies. Priced at £6.95, the fisherman's pie was a gorgeous combination of pollock, prawns and salmon in parsley sauce, covered with smooth mashed potato. My guest was equally tempted by the popular pies, selecting the rich steak and ale pie with crisp pastry. The huge Yorkshire puddings - which arrive overflowing with steak and ale, cauliflower cheese or minced beef - looked a treat and are brilliantly priced at just £6.50. Desserts here include devilishly divine chocolate fudge cake with ice cream and classic roly poly served with steaming custard. A good selection of drinks accompanies the food, with real ales available to sup in the summer sun.

The pub is well known for its Sunday roasts and popular guest-chef nights, but really comes into its own every other weekend when it opens its doors to various live music acts and hosts open mic nights. With ample parking available in the car park opposite, you really have to experience this truly welcoming establishment first-hand.
