Located in the village of Horley, The Foresters is an existing Stonegate Pub which was refurbished and re-opened to the public in October 2019.
The design brief was to upgrade and refresh the finishes and furnishings in such a way to retain the existing atmosphere, keeping to the ethos of the Proper Pub brand with an earthy and traditional interior.
Operationally, the intention was to not to re-position the pub but to enhance the existing character. The Foresters is a popular venue for family dining, sports viewing, and is a member of a darts league, The sports focus was improved through providing a dedicated area for competitive games, and enabling sports viewing in all seating areas. A flexible area which includes ‘bookable booth seats with private TV’s also offers a casual darts facility and can be used for both sport or family dining. The external areas to both front and rear were upgraded along with the toilets and the back bar.
The furnishings, finishes, artwork and lighting stay true to the ‘proper pub’ concept of creating a traditional space in the heart of the community which invites customers to relax, refuel and socialise in a welcoming environment.
