Forrester’s Surry Hills
A community hub for connection and celebration. Forrester’s is a historic tavern where people have been drinking, eating and gathering for over 100 years.
Applejack are the privileged owners of this iconic pub. We have brought life back into the public house by transforming four spaces under one roof into unique experiences for the community.
Keeping true to its legend as a local watering hole and paying respects to the lands that the pub sat on for so many years, we bring you an authentic Australian experience. We continually work with our suppliers to source local and premium quality produce, and strive to be kinder to the planet by implementing sustainable practices across everything we do.Read More
The interiors take you on a journey as you follow through the different rooms, drawing inspiration from the building’s century-old history and original ‘bones’. The styling varies depending on the room you are in. Public Bar, The Art Rooms and Upstairs incorporate a timeless colour palette and natural timbers, while Phylli’s is our bright space with pastel hues and lush greenery. The four spaces are tied together by Applejack’s welcoming atmosphere and love of an authentic Australian time.
