This restaurant is very local to us and we couldn't be happier. The
Old Forge is warm and cosy with a great covered outdoor area, which is lovely in summer and winter. The food is great, something for every taste and always the same great quality. Service is faultless, food comes in good time and the cocktails are very, very good. We are fans!

Well it was all excellent from the arrival to paying the bill. Great food from the Italian choices on the menu i.e. bruschetta & calamari to start and crab linguine & vegetable risotto for mains. The tiramisu for dessert was top notch. A great early evening diner.

First times the old Forge and not disappointed. Service was good and the food was delicious . I had scotch egg for starters and crab linguine for my main. The portion size was generous and unfortunately I could not fit in a desert. Would definitely return next time we holiday in the best part of England!

Service wasn’t outstanding, but it’s a cute place and prices are reasonable. They have decent beers there, but nothing on tap. We both got pizza. My girlfriend enjoyed hers, as did most people there from what I could tell, but mine was a disgusting soggy greaseball mess that completely fell apart as soon as I tried to eat a bite. The cheesy dough ball starter was outstanding.

Bank holiday Monday.

App worked really well and was easy to use for reservation.

Good food. We chose a couple of items from the starter menu.

Service was excellent

Slightly high on the price point.

Overall a very pleasant experience and will come again - as we are locals. :)
