Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Dirty, disorganised, letting the area down. Plates of dirty dishes and uneaten food piled high at the end of the bar. Staff didn't have a clue what was going on. Needs new management and a cleaner !

Superior staff and succulent roast chicken. A well-earned Margarita! Nice to be back in the comfort of the Forge, with the ever-attentive staff and delicious fare!

We had a lovely lunch in the Forge yesterday. It was an Easter outing for our Active Retired Group. We were seated upstairs - nice and roomy. The food was delicious and enjoyed by all. The person seated beside me had specific dietary needs and...was very happy with her meal. All the staff were pleasant and most helpful. We will be back.More

Excellent food, service, facilities and staff. We enjoyed a hot and hearty dinner-roast chicken, turkey and ham with all the trimmings, followed by a crumble berry target with custard and ice cream. Highly recommend The Forge, Moycullen

This pub serves high quality restaurant food at pub prices. Had a shoulder of lamb that was so tender it could be eaten with a spoon. Very friendly staff also. Overall very impressive

When we arrived at the back entrance we were greeted by a very friendly lady who said they were fully booked so we said no problem and went for a few pints elsewhere. We returned around 2 hours later and came in the side entrance...where there was a young man standing at the wait to be seated stand. He him continued to type on some screen gadget and failed to acknowledge us and eventually he mumbled I'll be with you in a few minutes as if we were a nuisance to him. We all decided to leave and eat elsewhere. Very ignorant and not suitable as someone meant to be greeting guests! Let's say we will be eating elsewhere from now on!More

From the minute we walked in the door it was just fabulous. The decor is just out of this world, the attention to detail is outstanding and that was before we even got the menu. The food main course for 2 adults and 2 children...everyone had different options. The nicest meals we have eaten for a very long time. The pulled pork burger came in a black bun which was a bit fun to look at as I’d never seen this before but everything was perfect. The staff were brilliant, each one as nice as the next. The price of the food was such good value. I would definitely go out of my way to eat here again, the whole place was just fabulous. Get a lovely feeling the minute you walk through the door. The outside eating area was just as fabulous and funky as inside. Loved every minute here.More
