    My wife and I have visited Forest 3 or 4 times now and have always had excellent service there. We were quite shocked that they remembered our drink orders from a few months ago and pleasantly surprised. As always, Forest is in our top 3 (we can't decide placings on the top 3) places to go for Sunday lunch. As always, we will return. The decor, ambience and staff really make the place. The food is usually 100% perfect but the potatoes and meat were a bit dry this time like they'd been left under warming lights? but overall, a fantastic place to eat and we shall return. Again and again. Thank you to all the staff for a lovely Sunday afternoon.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Forest. The food was excellent and a good choice of wines. My husband is hard or hearing so the noise level was welcome - still loads of ambience though. Will be back!!

    Nice restaurant, great ambience, friendly service. Well prepared, fresh food. Could have done with a little more lamb than three little chops in the ‘rack’. Otherwise great!

    Lovely restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere. We liked the roast dinners and huge sticky toffee pudding. The cocktails were delicious too. We liked everything about it. Service was a little slow.

    We went to Forest as we had watched a review on YouTube, Gary Eats. He said how fantastic the Steak was so I was interested to try it. Unfortunately it fell short of my expectations. It was overcooked and tough, which spoiled my experience. The staff were on the ball however, and the ambience and decor was great. Would we go again? Probably not.
