A quick pint at the Forester's Arms

I went out for a cycle ride yesterday and finished the ride with a pint at the Forester's Arms in Horsham. The pub is a favourite of mine, particularly during the summer when the pub's garden makes an ideal spot for for post-ride relaxation.

The pub normally has three beers on tap and I always make a point of trying a beer that I've not tasted before. For yesterday's "taste test", it was Hopgoblin Gold from Wychwood. It's a hoppy golden ale made from six different hop varieties and with ABV 4.5%. Whilst it's not the hoppiest beer I've ever tasted, it's a nicely balanced ale with a variety of subtle flavours. It's a great pint for a summer's day!

We sat in the pub garden which has a lovely enclosed feel to it with a mix of wooden tables arranged on stone, paved and grassed areas. There's a wall on one side and a 'secret' gate that leads on to Bennett's Field. We always bring our bikes in through the gate and it does feel a bit like your are 'sneaking into' the pub as you enter. At least it does to me!

  • I don't have any pictures of the garden but there's a photo gallery on the pub's website.

Anyway, that's it for now. I plan to write a a few more of these short posts around the theme of a quick pint at a Horsham pub. Any excuse, I know!
