A lovely friendly welcome, nothing fancy inside but, the food was very good! Good to actually be able to see the chief cook it in front of you! Reasonable in price lacking in vegetarian options a little. There is also a children's menu which was good and varied.

The accomodation was good. The bed was comfy. Usual room faciities all good but the breakfast was poor. The bacon was very salty the single sausage was bland.No beans! For £59.50 I expect a lot better

Accommodation is in good size lodges that are clean. Decor is very dated and quite dark and initially I found it a little off putting but it grew on me and became part of the charm. Lovely shower. There were bats outside our lodge, fascinating to watch at dusk. There is a small pool on site which we had completely... More

More of a café than a restaurant. Didn't have any veg, except peas! Steaks were overcooked too, we ordered 2 medium rare and they came well done. OK for café experience The best dish seemed to be the lamb chops

Located next to a service station, the staff were very friendly and helpful. Seemed like a family run business, check in was quaint with a book instead of the computer screen check in... Room was in a block across the car park from the main reception, bar and restaurant, it was peaceful and quiet, well furnished and ideal for our... More

Excellent cod - cooked to perfection, juicy and flaking as it should be. Have recently tried different side dishes - like the grilled tomatoes which are very nice. Lovely staff - Wendy, Sylvia, Barbara, Christine and Sam, who are sincere and attentive at all times, even when the restaurant is very busy. Reading some of the reviews, I notice people... More

After not being able to get a meal somewhere else, The Forge was recommended to us. When we arrived, it was very busy with others waiting for a table. The waitresses were extremely busy which I guess was a good sign, but we got overlooked. Another couple walked out because of waiting too long. We finally managed to get a... More

Stayed here last weekend whilst visiting The Laugharne festival . The room no 9 was large but smelled a little bit musty . We opened the windows to let some fresh air in and that seemed to help . When we returned that evening the room was lovely and warm. The bed was very comfortable and we had a good... More

Always used to stop at this restaurant on the way to Milford Haven. So disappointed, it looks tired and not very clean. I wanted new potatoes with my meal but they were unavailable. Expensive for the whole experience and unfortunately will not be revisiting. Such a shame.
