The Forge is a West Wales institution which started life as a cafe in an old forge alongside the old A40. It was updated in around the 1970's and hasn't changed much since and which is in fact part of its charm nowadays. Which isn't to say also that the place is not absolutely spotless.
We have been eating in the resturant regularly on our way to and from Pembrokeshire for years. For fresh, well cooked, traditional fare this place is unbeatable. We especially recommend the chicken curry 'alf 'n 'alf (rice and chips), the home cooked ham, the deep fried cod and the old fashoned ice cream desserts (if you have room left). Some of the dishes like the half of roast duck or the mixed grill are for those with heroic appetites!The Forge also serves the best chips we have tasted anywhere - crisp and golden.
The place is staffed by charming local waitresses, most of whom are Welsh speaking.
This is one of our favourite places to eat.
