“Average food with poor service”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

We have eaten at Wetherspoons often. Whilst on a trip to Chester we ate at the Forest. Food was average and close to cold. The stuffing on the roast dinner was inedible and burnt from the inside as it had been over microwaved. Service was limited and no one checked if we thought our food was ok. When we pointed out the quality of the food the member of staff acknowledged that the stuffing was poor and mentioned that it would be mentioned to the kitchen. The level of customer service was not up to the standard that we have become used to at Wetherspoons in the past.

“great food and cheap drinks”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

i would like to congratulate this pub/chain for there nice food and more importantly cheaper priced drink and having the price of the beers/drinks readily avalibile at the bar for us the customer to view in stead of having a shock when we pay.but some times the staff seem stretched at times but still came and asked us if the food was ok...more pubs need to display there prices in stead of having them tucked away behind the bar.....well done forest house

“Cheap but not cheerful”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Husband, daughter & 2 grandchildren went on 29th July for a quick evening meal. Husband had to wait ages for someone to arrive to let him use the disabled lift. Eventually found a table that was clean, chose our food and then waited at least 15 minutes whilst the only person serving behind the bar was making cocktails for a group.It was 7.15pm and I was told that children were not allowed after 8.30pm but it took so long to order and then wait for the food that it was after that when we left. The food arrived after a long time, the steaks were not as ordered and the food was cold. The chicken was so overcooked it was inedible. TYPICAL WETHERSPOONS. Needs more staff, more cleaning and more care.

“Good prices and tasty food!”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Visited with my sons and girlfriend. Mum and dad in the chair. Potential to be a bit expensive to say the least. So hurrah for JDW and their bargain menus. Five excellent tasty meals - fabulous chips BTW - and we were full up and very happy. Good quality and we'll prepared. Very comfortable pub - friendly, helpful young staff. What's not to like?

“Good food, great value”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

Don't usually visit wetherspoons as they tend to be a bit 'no frills', but this one is excellent. Wonderful and quick service. Had the beer and burger deal, which was great for the price. There's also a huge selection of beers which I'll have to return and try as I ran out of time after two. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a pleasant yet cheap night!
