Upon entering the bar area we were met by a lovely, we think Spanish,... More

Attended here for a meeting which included the carvery. Found all the food well presented and tasty. Very similar to most carvery venues but that's pretty much what you want when you want a roast.

We have had severa l Sinday lunches here and yesterday's lunch was fairly typical. Of the three joints available we had the beef and turkey, both were tender and moist, and all the vegetables available were colourful and well cooked. Not much for the vegetarians! My only complaint might be that the food gets cold before you've finished it as... More

Myself and the family visited for a Sunday carvery. We left feeling underwhelmed and disappointed to say the least. We were seated and all began well, ordered drinks and food and were told to go to the buffet to help ourselves. We waited for 5 minutes for the chef to come out to cut the meat and then moved on...

We decided to visit this restaurant for lunch and were very pleasantly surprised. Our waiter Christian was an excellent host and looked after us from the moment we entered the restaurant, We were all very pleased with our food and thought it was really good value for money

The restaurant had a mediocre choice of meals in the evening which I personally thought were overpriced for the portion sizes and complexity of the dish.

Having driven past this place on numerous occasions, the sight of the motel-style accommodation next door has always put us off, but having been there last night I can vouch for the fact that this is most definitely NOT a Travelodge/Beefeater combination - the food was excellent, the staff were very friendly and attentive and it wasn't your normal silly...

We drive past The Forge every day to work and on checking peoples comments on the restaurant decided to avoid. This changed recently when reading the menu we decided to make up our own minds. I have to say how surprised we were at the good food especially their home cooked pork scratchings and the varied main curses on offer.... More
