“Good Sunday Lunch”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Not been here before for food, but pleasantly surprised. Great roast beef with the usual trimmings. Definitely on the radar for the Office Christmas Lunch.

“10/10 for effort!”
Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

Recently visited The fairly recent new look Bob Smithy's 'The Old Forge' eatery, and I have to say it was really good. The food was tasteful, well prepared and served. Staff where extremely helpful, friendly and efficient.
My only slight critique would be the decor - not entirely sure what kind of custom they are trying to attract with all the old fashioned Limey furnishings. It would benefit a great deal with a few pictures of the area - give it a proper 'pub' feel.

“Great Sunday Roast.”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

Fantastic roast on Sunday at the Old Forge. I always choose fish when eating out but the Old Forge has converted me to roast beef which is out of this world. The atmosphere is always warm and welcoming. Jordan and his waitresses look after all their customers 100% nothing is to much for them. I can't wait to go back and I would highly recommend a visit to anyone who hasn't visited the Old Forge yet. Well Done Jordan.
