Loved our visit, they have a great range of ales to wash down some lovely food, the wings and the calamari were wonderful and all served by some very nice staff. Highly recommended.

Visited here many times in recent years. Staff are always friendly, drinks range always interesting (more craft beers lately, and wines are good), and we love the food range (always something interesting) and execution.

This bar really does have it all. Great craft beer with all taps being changed over at least weekly always ensures there is something new and tasty on tap. Forest lodge also prides itself on its variety of cocktails and has a respectable wine selection....More
