I often come at the old forge and it’s always a nice experience. Food is good and staff are welcoming. On our last visit we ate outside and it was really nice. It’s one of my favourite pubs.

Note: this is a chain pub. Having been to one of their other venues, I can say this rant below also applies to the other "branch" I visited. I suspect what I am about to say is a fault of management who seemingly don't care....More

Unfortunately no roasts available which was a disappointment. However our choices of food were very good and the service by Giorgiana was excellent.

Sorry to see that, we do try and keep our roasts going into the evening, but on this occasion eating a Sunday lunch later in the day obviously didn't meet your expectations, and we are sorry about that. I do hope you'll visit again soon.
