Perfectly placed for visiting Sherwood Forest and it's Visitor's Centre, this series of old buildings and newer additions go to make The Forest Lodge Hotel. They have managed to fit the bedrooms into the upstairs (and outside ground floor) but access is not easy. Check-In is fine but if a pal of mine hadn't helped carry my luggage I would...

Thank you for your review. The Forest Lodge is indeed an inn, built in 1770, and has all the characteristics of such a property. As an inn, it is rated to 4 stars by the AA. In terms of access to the rooms in the main building, there is a staircase leading up to them which some people with limited...

Thanks for the review. To be clear, The Forest Lodge has been awarded four silver stars in its category as an inn. The stars are awarded by the AA which is an independent organisation. There is no requirement in this category to have a permanently staffed reception. Nevertheless, we do try to have somebody at the reception desk as often...

Here for the first time for dinner with colleagues,based on a recommendation. The pub is quite small and tables quite close together in the bar,and I don't like sitting on stools when eating out for dinner, but this furniture gripe is a minor point, in what was a great experience. Service was good, food was very good with some interesting...

Thanks for the kind review. Our pub has just been voted one of the cosiest in the UK by a national Sunday newspaper so I make no apologies for its cosy layout! However, December is our busiest month of the year so it is always advisable to book in advance if one wants a particular table.

We booked a table for seven people for a Monday lunchtime. What a wonderful experience. the staff were superb, nothing was too much trouble. I think we ordered something extra every time the waitress walked passed our table. Lovely atmosphere and superb food.

Gorgeous pub with good accommodation but what makes this place great is the food and the staff. The food is perfect English pub food - really tasty, good choice and large servings. The staff are sensational - especially Crystal. She's super friendly and efficient and went above and beyond with the kids. Just an all-round fantastic experience.

Had a lovely family meal on last night of our holiday. Great food, reasonable prices and lovely atmosphere. Nice and cosy with open fire, staff very attentive and whilst it was busy service was still very good. Would return if we visit the area again.
