The waitress was excellent and very accommodating. I got the wrong booking time, but they did their best to accommodate us even though they were busy. The food was excellent: arancini and crab linguini. I’m Sicilian and, even though the arancini were a variation of our original recipe, they were delicious! Well done!
What a find. Staff were lovely and there was a good choice of food -especially teenager friendly in respect of delicious pizzas and fantastic crab linguini for the adults. Great puds, sticky toffee pudding and a vegan cheesecake which was amazing.
Highly recommended this restaurant. The food is absolutely amazing and a lovely atmosphere.
Lovely atmosphere never disappoints . Thank you A+++++
Great place to eat, good food service started well but as so often tailed off. Lovely location eat outdoors but under cover, parking in front
Good selection on the menu, staff were friendly, Food was amazing
The Forge was an amazing place to be in aesthetically , friendly staff and attentive and the food was incredible! We thoroughly enjoyed our visit! Highly recommended!
Once again excellent service and good value for money food
I Food is always great here, unfortunately my risotto has a detergent taste to it and we did say when we finished - my friend’s tasted it and said exactly the same( my husband said he was glad he hadn’t ordered it) Just quietly told the waitress, a little disappointed that there wasn’t anything done about it, other than sorry about that. We will go again as it’s the only time I haven’t had a good meal
Called in to start our Cornish holiday. What a lovely way to start!
Always excellent food here, good quality and quantity. Staff always warm and friendly. Love the ambience in this place, feel relaxed and not rushed.
Amazing breakfast, good quality food and v tasty....and a breakfast cocktail lush@
We had a lovely meal and experience at The Old Forge - great ambience, friendly and relaxed; simple but delicious food, expertly cooked.
We had a lovely meal abs the service was fantastic. Food was really fresh and delicious.
Lovely food, we chose crab linguine and it was amazing! Great friendly service, I would definitely recommend!
Small menu but the food was delicious. Restaurant is lovely inside, parking is limited. Service was great. An all round excellent meal out
Beautiful venue, lovely staff and amazing food - what more could you want!
Lovely food. Only down side was lack of on-site parking and it was raining heavily.
Great food, atmosphere and service as always. Unfortunately, we saw first hand the obnoxious behaviour the hardworking staff have to put with up from some customers! This was dealt with efficiently and professionally- well done to the whole team!
Really nice. Good ambience, nice music! Great food. Good children’s menu as well.
The only negative was the witch that greeted us, who was upset because we had a two year old with us that she hadn't been informed about, stating that she only had the one high chair. Once we got past her everything was brilliant. The food was great and our waitress was lovely.
We were given a nice table in the covered courtyard, just next to four other high chairs.
Amazing food as always and well looked after by the lovely staff! Super clean and well organised with a lovely atmosphere. We will definitely be back 😍
Good and service was excellent as always, will be coming again
Great food, great staff, what more can you ask for
It’s such a lovely restaurant
Brilliant food such an excellent chef have eaten there this week 3 times for breakfast and once for evening meal and cannot praise it enough
Lovely restaurant a cut above the average bistro. Fresh food, good service and a nice ambiance on the terrace. Highly recommended
Lovely meal, arrived with a young family and nothing was too much trouble. Loved the exposed stone restaurant, staff were great and the food excellent. Hard to fault really!!
Enjoyable experience, highly recommend. Lovely place.
Great food and equally great service. We were spoilt for choice with the menu - so many lovely things to choose from (including a wide variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks). A lot of thought has also gone into creating an all-weather covid safe outdoor area. We couldn’t fault anything.
Best crab linguini I have had! The children all loved their pizzas too!
Amazing food & service. It’s my number one go to for dinner. It’s always such an amazing experience, good & service
When I booked, I asked for table 11 and this is what I had. This does not always happen with bookings restaurants. Creates a good impression and will return.
Very pleased with friendly helpful service. Lovely choice on the menu.
Everything about our dining experience was top rate. The food was delicious and we were made to feel really welcome.
The only down side was the lack of parking so we had to park off site and walk to the restaurant.
Would definitely recommend.
A fabulous evening in a beautiful location. What a great job you are doing - well done and see you again! Thank you!
Great food in a lovely setting. Pudding was beautiful.
Delicious food served by delightful, helpful staff. Thank you
I went here last week with my daughter for lunch,It was so nice I took my friend on Friday. The staff are very friendly, the food was delicious & the place is spotless. I will be returning again very soon.
So grateful to have this as our "local". Had a fantastic breakfast. Try the granola served with coconut yoghurt, strawberries and micro herbs and flowers. Wonderful!
