Welcome to the royal foresters
A meeting place in the heart of Ascot for over 140 years, now this historic building has been refurbished, remade and redesigned. A place where the past meets the present, where log fires meet Mediterranean-inspired food, where cask ales meet wood fired pizza. It’s also where we’ve made a hotel with 24 beautiful guest rooms each with bespoke, contemporary interiors. This is the new Royal Foresters of Ascot.
Come through the main entrance, beautifully framed with wisteria, and arrive into our fully restored original bar with two period fireplaces. Through a brand new glazed extension on the east side, we offer a charming view onto a landscaped terrace and freshly planted beer garden.
The restaurant boasts an open kitchen, a hallmark of the Oakman collection, where our chefs can be observed creating freshly prepared dishes, using the highest quality, responsibly sourced ingredients. As well as meat, fish and pasta favourites, diners can also delight in a great range of gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options, along with daily seasonal specials.
Wedding receptions, birthday celebrations and a variety of other functions are easily catered for, with room for 80 seated guests, both inside and outside, on the terrace surrounded by fresh plants. Whatever the occasion, our enthusiastic and talented team will make it a memorable one.
Building the Royal Foresters
Oakman Inns bought The Royal Foresters in Ascot in December 2016. Building work began in the autumn of 2017 and finally opened in July 2018. It was the most challenging projects that Oakman Inns has ever undertaken. Our 240 day time lapse shows the work and restoration behind the new Royal Foresters - reborn from the rubble.
What Our Guests Say
THE OAKMAN INNS FAMILY
Oakman Inns & Restaurants was founded in 2005. Our vision was to create an environment where like-minded people could come and enjoy some great food and drinks whilst catching up with friends, family, neighbours and colleagues.
We quickly won a place in the hearts and minds of local people through our support of local sports teams and community events. Then we started winning awards too. Today we work hard to replicate this recipe in each and every new pub that we open.
