Having read some of the less appealing comments made about the Forge Valley Inn on here I think certain individuals need to come down from their high Pedi stool and understand the realities of what we are reviewing. This is not a fine dining a la carte restaurant but indeed a country pub serving excellent hand pulled beers and quality pub food sold at very reasonable prices. All tastes are catered for and personally If you are told there is a twenty minute wait for food then that shows you are receiving a quality home cooked meal made fresh and not from the microwave. I have visited the Forge in Ayton a few times and have always found the landlord and landlady very accommodating and professional in their approach. The staff are as equally helpful and polite, they will do anything to make your time at the forge be a comfortable one. The beer is well looked after with hand pulled guest ales available.The ambience of the place is welcoming and relaxing. Jo and Simon I believe have only recently took over the pub and have transformed the place immensely since there arrival. Traditional Carvery's served twice a week, steak nights and even a tea room option throughout the day appeals to couples and families alike. A good sized beer garden and ample seating for food with a separate bar for drinkers all contributes to pleasing everyone. If you are looking for a traditional style pub which welcomes everybody with good food and quality beer, please look no further!! A truly great example of how a place should be run and credit to the owners for delivering this. It saddens me to here people reviewing a normal public house in the same light as Gordon Ramsey's style restaurant. If that's what you want then off you go and leave the normal down to earth people to enjoy themselves!! Thank you I will be visiting again soon!!
