“Good for Golf Trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2013

I have just returned after spending 3 nights at Forest Lodge on a golf tour with 11 other senior golfers. We were all very happy with the hotel. My room was at the front and did suffer some traffic noise. This could have been reduced had there been double glazing fitted. However the bed was comfortable, bathroom clean with hot water so it was fine. The food however was way beyond my expectations. There was variety and each dish that I ate was beautifully cooked. I particularly enjoyed the lamb with fennel ratatouille, a rather unusual dish.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms at the front.

Easter Sunday lunch time booking.
Nice feel to the building and friendly staff on entering.
sat next to fire in the bar area looking at the menu, no specials on a Sunday though.

Restaurant was spaced out well and noise levels we low which I like.
Food was rather basic with no flair or personality on the plate which was a shame.
Cooked well but did not deliver as a must return to check out what the chef is doing next week.

Hope this helps ?

Thanks for this review. In point of fact, there were specials available on the Sunday in question: they were printed on the menu as opposed to being written on the blackboard. We try to offer a mixture of both traditional and more unusual food. Clearly, there is only so much 'flair' that you can introduce into, say, a Sunday roast or a steak pie. A glance at our current menu (on our website) does I think show that our chefs aim to deliver food with lots of personality that is more than 'basic'.
This is an eighteenth century coaching inn and our offering across the board - food, drink & accommodation - tries to remain faithful to that tradition.

My mother in law paid for us to stay here on our wedding night on the 5th of April and it was awful. The bridal suite had been specifically booked and it was horrible. Black and grey is not romantic at all and there wasn't even a proper wardrobe..just an old white formica unit. The bathroom was freezing, the bed was uncomfortable and sleep was impossible because of the noise from downstairs, the sound of people outside and the traffic which was about 5 feet from the bed. The greeting from the person who checked us in was very un-welcoming and yet the cleaner that took our key from us in the morning was just lovely..perhaps they should be swapped around??
All in all it was the worst 'hotel' I've ever stayed in, ruined our wedding night and I'd never go back. We left before 7am because we couldn't wait to get away.

Firstly, I am sorry that the reviewer had an awful wedding night. However, I find the tone of the review most unfair. In response:

1. The room in question was refurbished last year; the colour scheme is silver, plum and black; the mattress is new; there is a wall-heater in the bathroom.
2. The room does indeed face a minor road and traffic does pass by. Unfortunately, there is nothing that we can do about that.
3.As can be seen from the majority of the other reviews, our staff generally receive praise for their customer service. I have spoken to the staff member concerned and she is incredulous.
4. Thank you for the kind comments regarding one of our house keepers. I only wish that the kindness had extended to letting her know about the broken glass in the sink on which she could have hurt herself.

On a more general note, when and where possible, we would always recommend visiting our establishment to ensure that it meets with requirements, particularly before a special occasion.

We really enjoyed our stay on Good Friday, very cute hotel with loads of history. On the Saturday the staff opened the bar just for us as our family came over for a day out in the forest, they were so helpful and lovely and put on coffees for us to have with our homemade birthday cake.

Thanks again for your great service we had a lovely weekend.

We dined here with friends in Feb, and we were greated by a lovely friendly lady with a smile on her face, always starts things off nicely!

The service was great, the food was lovely, the only thing I would point out but this might be me being picky is the wine list was very limited and didnt really offer much in the way of choice.

Apart from that, happy with our visit and would return.

We were staying at Sherwood Pines Forest Park and booked a table for 8 people after reading reviews from others staying at the same location. We were not disappointed. I think it was probably the best roast I've ever had! Beautiful roast beef, mash and roast potatoes, plus loads of veg. The creamed leek was amazing! The staff were very friendly and the whole meal was a lovely relaxed experience. I will definitely come back again!

10 members of our family stayed overnight at the end of January to celebrate our son's 40th birthday. The location was superb within walking distance of Sherwood Forest and the hotel totally fitted our requirements:- child friendly, all the rooms beautifully clean and spacious, food delicious and the staff were very accommodating. In all, a great place to stay.
