Have been here a few times for food so thought we would book for Christmas Day. Very nice meal, a little wait between each course as very busy, but who wants too rush! Food lovely and hot when served.nice atmosphere,staff very friendly.well done all.

Went here for my Christmas work do ! So Iv heard this place is ok but I was shocked there was about 50 of us in the private room upstairs nice room tables booked for half 7 the starter arrived at 9pm please beat in mind we made this booking 3 months ago so the manager had plenty of time to sort staff ect so after the cold starter the main ie so called roast potatoes / veg come out the middle of tables at 10.15 and the meat followed 20 mins later shocking never never will return highly embarrassing night for the staff / person that booked it manager should be sacked !!!!!!!

The Forge was refurbished up a few years a go. Its OK but sadly lacks any real character and I'm not keen on a pool table being a central focus. Fortunately the food does make up for the ambience and we found it to be good quality and reasonably priced.

typical pub meals of a high standard - sizzling platters etc. Nicely cooked, well presented & generous portions. Premises clean & traditional styled. Will go back.
