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

We (my husband and I and small dog) have just spent 5 nights staying here to visit friends and family.. We stayed at No 1 which was an excellent large room with a little hallway and large shower room ..everything was clean and bright with a lovely view over very large lawn which made it very private.. The owners and... 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.

Midweek and three friends turn up unexpectedly as they were visiting West Wales. I was caught on the hop with an empty larder and thought that I would try The Forge as an early evening solution. Having passed by this place hundreds of times and usually seeing it busy at peak times I thought it must be worth a punt.... More

The accommodation is situated away from the restaurant and main road, in single storey terraced chalets. The decor is clean but uncoordinated, and the bedding has seen better days, very washed out! It did offer peace and quiet, with easy, ample parking. Breakfast was delicious and cooked fresh to order in the restaurant, but again, a makeover would not go... More

I'm a regular visitor to the restaurant which has good food at a reasonable price. The staff are friendly and flexible, even when groups arrive without notice. The location is easy to find being on the A40 near St Clears and next to a petrol station. Very central for tourists with easy access to the coast or hills. We regularly... More

Just had a3 night stay at the lodge. After travelling for hours on our motor bikes (we were at a show down at the show ground)we were made very welcome there was a mix up on one of our rooms but it was soon fixed. Breakfast and evening meals we're freshly cooked and enjoyable. Would definitely stay here again. All... More
