This is our favourite Indian in Abbots. We always receive a personal and warm welcome. The food is excellent and banquet nights particularly good value. If you like wine there is a good range on offer to suit most tastes. Looking forward to returning soon.

This is one of our regular haunts. We try the other Indian restaurants in the village and always find them lacking compared to the Forest. The food is good, the welcome is warm and the price is right.

Always great here, they are always friendly, and the food is great. Other restaurants in Abbots are also good (not all!!) but the Forest never fails. Banquet nights, and Cobra on draught. what more could anyone want.
