Our organisation, the North Warwickshire Circle of The Catenian Association, have used the Forest Hotel without any problems for our monthly meetings and dinners for at least the last five years, and I can unreservedly recommend their event management, catering and service. We usually have between 35 and 110 people attending and dining, depending on the event.

On the very rare occasions when we experienced any (very minor) problems, the Forest's Event Managers always listened and quickly fixed them. We have tried other venues in the Solihull area in the past, but we haven't found anywhere to match the Forest in terms of cuisine and service.

The Forrest is our preferred hotel when staff stay over. The team are friendly and really helpful with my requests, they know what we like and know which rooms we like to stay in, nothing is too much trouble for them. We hold events with them quite regularly and it's so easy dealing with them. Many of the larger hotels in Solihull can't hold a candle to them for customer service and friendliness. The food is the bar is tasty and really well priced, fish cakes are a favourite of ours. Whether is for an overnight or just a drink and food after work you'll always find us in The Forest.

Whilst the dining area is somewhat dated and in real need of decoative attention in places (scratches on walls, chipped tables, tatty rug, curtains off rails etc), the fixed price lunch represents excellent value for money. The dishes skimped on nothing, showed real flair and the ingredients were first class.
Service was friendly from an amiable Aussie young lady. The car park was clogged with conference attendees but if your visit is less than two hours, use the short stay one next door. Will visit again when next in the area, and will try the interesting a la carte menu. So-lee-hull prices (residents think sex is what coal is delivered in) but should be good if the prix fixe lunch is anything to go by!

Came here for a lovely dinner with my friend to catch up, the food was absolutely delicious, especially the steak and kidney pudding. The white chocolate fondant was to die for, had to fight my friend for just a mouthful! The staff were very attentive, friendly and efficient throughout our dinner and the food was served quickly. Overall I would recommend The Forest to anyone in the Solihull area who loves great food and atmosphere.

This is local to us and we visit regularly. Friendly staff, good service. We tend to just come here for drinks. Lovely establishment. Only one negative, Cashew nuts are extortionate!!! Other prices are reasonable for this class place.
