We have previously eaten in the pub and always enjoyed it, but the food in the restaurant is really top class, freshly cooked with quality ingredients and good service. When you consider what you can pay for 'specials' at some of the other pubs in the vicinity, and then you eat at the Old Forge restaurant, there is no comparison, which makes it excellent value. Will definitely eat here more often.

ANOTHER fabulous meal at the Old Forge! I had bruschetta which was very, very tasty, followed by penne pasta and smoked salmon with lots of cream - absolutely delicious. John had mushrooms with a sweet chilli dip which he thoroughly enjoyed (I had a taste too and it was yummy), then he had pasta with meatballs which he loved. The service, as always was spot on, and the waitress was polite and helpful. All in all another smashing evening at the Bob's Smithy! Roll on the next one!!

Good menu, plus 'specials'. Excellent food, attractively arranged. Very good service. Would certainly go again and would recommend to friends. 2 people, 3 courses plus wine: £72

Visited 15/06/13 with some friends. Had been to the pub in the past but this was our first visit to the restaurant. The fantastic food was freshly prepared and well worth the slight wait. The staff were friendly and helpful. We were the last to leave and did not feel at all rushed. We will be going back!
