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

On our holiday to Tenby with our grandson we decided to stop off at The Forge Resturant for a light bite, as due to bank holiday traffic our usual trip of two hours took longer than expected. We often visit this Inn for food but the previous time we weren't too happy with the food or price, but decided to... More

Comfortable stay although only one night. Massive room, plenty of parking and very good breakfast. Lovely view across the fields. Only drawback really was the fact that it is a little way out of St. Clears but not a big problem. Other than that, no complaints.

We pulled in to this place to stay without a booking & were pleased to find they had a lodge room available. The room was enormous, away from the restaurant & really comfortable. Plus any time that WiFi is included is a good time! We loved the meals (get the garlic potatoes!!!) and breakfast was great too. it was an... More

I did not find my room to be spacious or particularly modern, especially the bathroom. Whilst there was an excellent power shower, it was let down by the rest of the bathroom which was a dated cream suite with tiles and towels that had seen better days - nothing like the bathroom seen in the pictures on the website ....
