Public house. 1909 by Thomas Henry Nowell Parr for the Royal Brewery,
Brentford. Rendered brick with granite plinth; gabled plain tile roof; corniced
brick stacks. Domestic Revival style. 2 storeys, with 3-bay elevations to both
Leighton Road and Seaford Road. Continuous ground-floor frontage, set on
granite plinth and divided by piers with green tile facings, is linked by
decorative iron railings surmounting dentilled cornice and plain fascia;
original half-glazed doors set behind rounded open porch with Tuscan columns to
corner, and two segmental-pedimented porches with Tuscan columns to
Leighton Road; bracketed pediment over half-glazed door to public bar in centre
of Seaford Road elevation; Tripartite wood-mullioned and transomed windows with
4-centred arches to lower lights and stained glass to upper lights. First floor
has gauged red brick cambered arches over 3-light sashes flanked by shutters;
two outer bays to Leighton Road have similar sashes to bow windows set beneath
carved brackets supporting projecting gables with dentilled cornices continued
round to Seaford Road elevation which has similar gable set over cornice and
recessed first-floor bay. Left-hand return has conservatory to front of
projecting bay with French window and flanking windows with glazing bars and
stained glass upper lights. Interior: complete pub interior, with public bar to
right of large saloon bar which opens onto restaurant to rear. Beamed
ceilings; panelled dados; neo-Georgian fireplaces; mahogany bar counter and
fittings with pilasters framing mirrors; Tudor-arched doors, with pedimented
screens to saloon; saloon bar has panelled bar partitions; public bar has
benches set against wall with turned balusters. The Forester is the most
celebrated of Nowell Parr's pub designs, which formed a transition between the
ornate pubs of the 1890s, divided into compartments, and the move restrained
neo-Georgian and Tudor open-plan pubs of the inter-war period.
