I have eaten several times at the Forest. It clearly has aspirations to serve decent food although I would not call it value for money. That said, the quality of food is quite reliable. There is a mismatch between the food and the service. Staff are often not clued up about the menu and have difficulty explaining how the food is prepared. In that way the restaurant feels quite provincial and this is what prevents it from being a really good place to eat at. The crowd it attracts don't mind paying the prices, but it is light years from being a real player in the food stakes and is not really for anyone with high expectations.
