We had a great evening in this quaint and quirky old forge, the lovely owners were friendly and attentive. The starter options are limited if you don't like or can't eat prawns, however the duck I had for my main was probably the best cooked breast I have ever had. Overall, very good traditionally cooked food in a welcoming atmosphere.

We made the 20 mile trip here on a wet, miserable night and were greeted by the proprietor holding the door open for us so we could get out of the rain. Once seated in the cosy restaurant, we chose our starters from the menu (apparently unchanging looking at other reviews) - my wife struggled a bit as she doesn't... More

After some years we returned to this restaurant with friends and enjoyed a very pleasant and enjoyable dining experience in that the food was excellent and the service welcoming and friendly. The dining area is still attractive but the lounge bar area could do with a little update. That does not detract from this being excellent 'value for money'. We... More

We have been coming to the Forge for about three years now, and it never disappoints. It has a unique and cosy interior; not, in my opinion, 'dated' as some reviews suggest, but simply an old building, sympathetically decorated and furnished. The service is attentive and friendly; you can take your time choosing from the menu over a drink in... More

I've been to Inglesham Forge many times with my husband and with friends and family and the food is never less than perfect. Jacquie is always friendly and welcoming, Manuel's food is always delicious - can't fault it! As previous reviewers have mentioned, the steak is probably the best you'll find locally and the rack of lamb just melts in... More

We went here for the first time on a Friday evening at 6:30pm, we had pre-booked and got a large table near the door for two. As the previous reviews have said it is a bit dated and full of old pictures and knick knacks but it was clean and suited us just fine. Just for clarification the picture above... More

We have used this restaurant for many years!! It's so special, from the friendly greeting on arrival, to the exquisite food, and chef personally making sure all is alright. We love the traditional setting and traditional food, that's why we always return. We also went on the 20th January 2013, we originally booked for 7:30, but due to our future... More

First of all I would like to point out the reviews with 2 stars seem to have the same complaint of "stuck in the 70's". This is purely personal opinion and if you don't like it, go elsewhere. It's that simple. Now for my review! I found the place online after searching "best steak in Swindon" so me and the... More
