We had been previously to the sister restaurant to this in findon.. But decided not to go back due to poor service. The concept, with hot rocks etc, is appealing so thought we would try forest row as we live smack bang in the middle of the two.
The restaurant was busy as we went on Saturday but we had booked . We were largely ignored after our drink order had been taken. I ordered a coke and got barely flavoured fizzy water, so complained, prompting a replacement. When we eventually ordered food it took ages to arrive, although was decent quality. Hot rocks took an hour or so after starters were finished, which when you factor in the prep required isn't really acceptable. You're cooking your own food after all! Various details were wrong too, like the rubs and sauces etc. being incorrect. The the bill came and was wrong... So I complained again.
In hindsight, if you were paying little money, it is fun, shambolic service aside... But it is blinking expensive really. £30 per head for starter and main, no alcohol. Not worth it, won't be back...
