“7/10”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Stayed for one night while visiting the area after checking out their website, I would have to say on first sight I was a little disappointed as the whole look of the exterior was a bit '70s and the location wasn't the best being close to a main road but there was only minimal noise in the lodges which were very well appointed, the bathroom looked recently refurbished with an excellent shower.
Breakfast was OK, nothing more nothing less.
Overall 7/10 is about right in my opinion.

What a little gem this is. Booked to stay overnight with my 8 year old in order to be fully rested before going to Oaklands Theme Park the next day. It was delightful, excellent value for money. The rooms aren't within the main building, little lodges set back from the restaurant. Ours was spotlessly clean, with a contemporary, modern bathroom and a large bedroom/lounge. Wifi was excellent, flat screen TV, comfy beds and pillows and our own front door.

The welcome was warm and friendly and the food was good too. The evening meal was huge and they have a kids menu. Breakfast reminded me of my nan! It was served in the old fashioned way, and tasted as good food should.

You can tell this is a family run establishment, the welcome is warm, the staff are friendly and efficient and genuinely take an interest. We will definately be going back next year when we visit Tenby.

Went for evening meal while on holiday in St Clears, one of the local place to eat. The location isn't brilliant on motorway. The food was excellent, great value and the waitresses that served us were really friendly and helpful.

I have eaten here twice now in the last month and thought I'd share my experience with Trip advisor.

I ordered the mixed grill and the wife had fish and chips
The food I must say was excellent the mixed grill was one of the best I've ever had..
The service was also top notch I would definitely eat here again would recommend. It is on the expensive side but I don't mind paying if the food quality is right.
Well done to the Forge.

We booked this last minute, and planned to stay for a couple of days. On arrival our 'lodge' accommodation was spacious, clean and really quiet and peaceful. Free use of the pool, gym and sauna at any time was great after a hot day. The breakfasts are amazing with the best bacon we have ever tasted. Meals served are very generous portions of basic good, homecooked food. The staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble, even putting themselves out to come in early to cook breakfast when we wanted to leave early one morning. Ended up staying for 6 nights. We will definitely come back again.
