The Foresters Arms was once tied to the Brimscombe Brewery but it might have once brewed its own beer as there is a reference to a brewery in Chapel Street (source unrecorded). The pub has been converted to a private house and the building stands at right angles to Chapel Street. The facade is of brick and the side of the building  (facing Chapel Street) is built in Cotswold stone. The front central door has  been replaced by a window.

There was an application in 1998 to convert the house into a restaurant but this was refused because the property was close to a sharp bend which constituted a hazard. It was put on the market in 1999 for £199,000.
