Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great breakfast and even better service, options to switch an item out for something else and keep the same price is really good.

We’ve eaten at Forage a number of times now both lunchtime and in the evening. Went last night again for dinner (currently they are open for dinner on Friday and Saturday nights hopefully that will extend this year) the food was as always superb -...top quality and presentation. The chef and his team are first class, work very hard and it’s always perfect. Local produce is highlighted well. Front of house are brilliant - very friendly, professional and always with a smile. The new manager Christiano is a highly qualified professional and will be a major addition to the team. If you haven’t been then you are missing out and I would say just try it. The shop is also well stocked and again local produce is very much to the fore. It’s all once again quality. Breakfast and lunch are also excellent and the coffees second to none. You can also book online which is useful too.More

I regularly visit Forage Farm to meet work colleagues as it’s central for us all and what a gem it is! Breakfast is freshly cooked to order using fresh ingredients, plenty of choice of drinks and the cakes are to die for, don’t ever change!

Myself, husband and daughter went for (the festive) Sunday lunch for the first time recently and WOW, it was the best Sunday lunch we've ever had out and we've had quite a few over the years! The service was great, the food was piping hot...and the flavours were just the best! Lovely slices of turkey, stuffing, bread sauce, very meaty pigs in blankets (they even brought extra ones out for us), proper home cooked roast potatoes, honey glazed parsnips & carrots, cauliflower cheese on the side and also tender stem broccoli and kale. The piece de resistance was the port gravy, it was gorgeous, honestly, you could not fault our meal one bit, it was so flavoursome. We will definitely be back, the farm shop is lovely too, well stocked with Welsh produce, including a great butcher's counter that make the most amazing lamb and mint sausages.More

Visited Christmas shop with my 90 year old dad. On entering the hut my father hit his head on the low entrance to the shop as he was concentrating on the floor as he uses a walking stick for mobility and balance. This resulting in...a deep cut to his scalp which was bleeding. The assistant who was on her phone did not come over to see how my dad was , apologise or show any concern about my father’s injury or welfare. She directed me to the main building to access a first aid kit. Again no compassion,care or sympathy were shown by the young staff .My father was not even offered a chair to sit on.I was shocked by the lack of concern by staff. In my opinion the entrance to the hut is too low and dangerous,a definite health and safety issue. I contacted Forage owner to inform him of the incident and hopefully prevent others getting injured.More

My partner booked the forage restaurant for my 30th birthday we were both really looking forward to dining with you. The service from the young lady, I didn’t catch her name but she had long mousy brown hair was absolutely amazing. Unfortunately, when our mains...come out, mine wasn’t cooked to how I ordered it which was medium rare sirloin it come out blue. The waitress was very apologetic took the meal away & told us she would have it removed from the bill. My partner ended up eating alone as it was 10/15 mins before mine came back out which then resulted me eating alone we were then given a bowl of chips no explanation just placed on the table by the blond waitress who just walked away, we didn’t ask for extra chips & actually didn’t want them as a way of saying sorry. When paying nearly £30 for a 8oz sirloin steak, 9 chips & a piece of tender stem broccoli you’d expect it to be a good meal, unfortunately it didn’t meet any expectations & I’d have been happier at the local harvester. The most insulting part was when the bill come out & not even the drinks had been taken off - even our waitress was embarrassed & couldn’t stop apologising for the inconvenience, we left a £5 tip for the waitress as she done her job well but the rest of the experience was shocking.More

I had heard good things about both the shop and the restaurant so arranged to meet a friend to browse the shop and have some lunch. It took a while for anyone to greet me when I arrived but several members of staff wandered past...without acknowledging I was standing there. Eventually we were seated (I asked for a table by the window but this request was also ignored) and menus placed on the table. The waitress said we had to go to the counter to order and pay before the food was delivered to the table. I did this and was still surprised that the server asked if I wanted to add a tip to the bill. I did but resent being asked to tip when what is essentially self-service. From the table we were sitting at we could hear the bell from the kitchen alerting staff that there was food waiting at the pass to be delivered to tables. It appeared that the staff could not as I saw our food sitting there for a while and nearly went to collect it myself as the waitresses were having a social chat by the counter on the other side of the restaurant. When the food arrived it was actually very good. I ordered the pumpkin gnocchi and my friend had the burger. My plate arrived covered in the obligatory pea shoots which I moved to one side to see the gnocchi surrounded by small pieces of roast pumpkin topped with soft cheese. It was well presented and tasty. The kitchen staff appear to know what they are doing, it is a shame the same cannot be said for the front of house staff who let down the experience for us.More
