“Mouthwatering, Memorable and Marvellous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2012

We absolutely love this restaurant and snug little bar...the food is divine, the staff are amazingly attentive - especially the bar/waiter...he is a font of information about the area and is a bit of a history buff so extremelyinteresting to chat to - and very entertaining. Nothing is too much trouble at the Old Forge - we love it and will return again.

“Fantastic!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2012

Visited for Sunday lunch, tha barman/waiter was incredibly accommodating and friendly,the chef's work was faultless (and he was willing to accommodate the wishes of the chldren, whilst serving their meals with the same presentational standards as or own).
As someone with 18 years experience "in the trade" I can wholeheartedly recommend The Old Forge to anyone- although booking is highly recommended!!
