Exterior of The Royal Foresters Ascot


In the heart of Ascot, the historic Royal Foresters is a lovingly restored pub, restaurant and hotel.

Through a beautiful glazed extension, the light and airy restaurant boasts an open kitchen, where guests can watch the chefs preparing their meals. With an emphasis on Mediterranean inspired, freshly cooked food, a skilled team of chefs can be seen grilling and roasting over the Josper charcoal ovens, and preparing hand-crafted authentic Italian pizzas in wood-fired ovens. The menu also features a selection of imaginative gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan dishes while the extensive and varied drinks offers a great choice of fine wines, real ales, gin, spirits and cocktails.

With 24 bedrooms, the boutique hotel provides a calm, relaxing escape with all the modern touches. In the timber lined rooms, bespoke hand painted lampshades meet classic turn of the century modern fabrics. Each room features a Roberts radio, flat screen TV. Each room has its own Nespresso machine for fresh coffee, as well as tea and mini bar facilities. 

A first-class hospitality hub for the Ascot area, the Royal Foresters is perfect for events and special occasions. The 80-seat function space, adjacent to the restaurant, can be sub-divided or incorporated into the main restaurant area. With its own private bar, it’s the ideal space for all kinds of celebrations and is adapted to suit corporate and business requirements. With complimentary super fast WiFi throughout the whole venue, and furnished with good quality AV equipment including projector, screen and speakers, it’s the perfect location to host meetings, training sessions, networking events and working breakfast or lunches.
