Welcome To The Forresters Arm


Since 1874

A Quaint Country Pub

Rob & Karen Collins become publicans of the The Forresters Arms in 2016. They had been regular drinkers in this beautiful quaint country pub for numerous years and it always felt like home. When news broke that their beloved local was up for sale, they decided to take over the helm and haven’t looked back since.

The Forresters Arms dates back to the 18th century and has always been the central hub of High Ongar; a place for friends to gather and for the whole family to enjoy in a warm and nurturing environment. Come and visit us for some real ale and fine wines.
