“great boozer.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Great choice of beers and a brilliant atmosphere. This is on a back lane near to the Central Train station. good place to hold up before walking around the corner for the acadeamy or to spend the whole night there.

“Proper pub, great grub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

I work near this place but had never been in. What a fool I now feel.

Only a brief stay as we had a train to catch (it is very near the station), but the beer and food were absolutely spot-on.

I had a mozzarrella, sun-dried tomato and pesto focaccia, which came with French fries. Lovely meal, and reasonably priced.

Lots of ales and beers to chose from, and a really good atmosphere. Very laid back, not full of the usual rowdy stag parties or Geordie Shore wannabees. I'll definitely be back for more.

“Tasty food during the day and great atmosphere in the evening.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

The Forth is one of those rare bars that has a real split personality. Food is served from midday and the small but select menu includes some great finds such as the lovely Aberdeen Angus burger. We last visited on a weekday afternoon and enjoyed a meal on the roof terrace.

On a night, things are very different! Food is still served into the evening however I feel that when the sun goes down, The Forth is best enjoyed as a venue for drinks and socialising. It is usually heaving on a weekend and the atmosphere is great. There are a number of premium spirits and wines available and draught Peroni which is my preferred choice.

Pink Lane is a great area of town just minutes away from Central Station and The Forth is one of the best bars there.
