Front door doesn't give away what is behind it. The most wonderful scenery imaginable. You could sit all day. It was difficult to get a booking as a lot of Saturday nights are booked for weddings. We opted for a Friday night. About 24 patrons. The menu is interesting and not too large. They have some tapas style dishes and... More

We went in a party of 10 in the restaurant. Beautiful views nice atmosphere. Unfortunately the food was very nice to rather ordinary. Also the service was poor. A warm salad for the main course should not be served before the starters, it gets cold. A couple drink orders never arrived. On the plus side the wood fired pizzas looked... More

Beautiful surroundings (thought I'd start with a positive) but from there on it turned out to be quite ordinary. We were greeted on arrival but we were not made to feel particularly welcome. We were shown to our table and from there on we had a variety of wait staff that were not overly friendly nor very efficient. We had... More

This is a beautiful place for a wedding. Great food, and fantastic views, even when raining. Staff were lovely, and very helpful.

We first came here for our daughters wedding 3 years ago and Bev and the team couldn't have done enough to make the day perfect. Just recently returned and had our grand daughters christening lunch and again it was lovely. The steak just melted in your mouth. keep up the good work.

We have been to Forest Edge several times, with family and with friends. We were back there yesterday, booked in for a casual family get together and birthday get together. This time a little disappointing......love live music, but not when the musician thinks he's on "The Voice" even if he is good. You want to chat and enjoy the ambience,... More

Having tried the restaurant in the last, we recently tried the new wood fire pizza bar at FE. We weren't disappointed. Modern, clean, helpful staff and you lose none of the fantastic scenery. We ate outside with a view to the hills. The pizza was very tasty and we'll priced. Definitely recommended.

I'd booked in for lunch on Valentines day. When they took my booking i wasn't advised that it was a set menu and price. The appetizer came out and it had fish. My partner has allergies to certain fish and wasn't able to have any of this dish. Then our entrees came out and we order oysters. 3 oysters were... More

We had Christmas lunch with our family at forest edge this year. It was lovely setting and view was incredible. Food was good, only complaint would be they didn't cater for children. The kids menu was smaller portions of the adult menu, which was too fancy for my 6 year olds tastebuds. But he still enjoyed himself and the staff... More
