“Best local pub west of the river”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

Forest & Brown is that very good mix of a local waterhole catering to the people nearby and a place to eat some simple but good food at either lunch or an early dinner. The interior is cosy in that british pub kind of way, whereas the outside seats are more reminiscent of a Parisian sidewalk cafe. Either way you will enjoy your stay, the food (their salads are both excellent taste and quite large) and the drink (they do both beer, wine and mixed drinks), and most of all that the size of the bill is manageable to be in the west end of Oslo. Travel those extra meters to pay it a visit!

“Perfect for a beer and a snack”
Reviewed March 30, 2012 via mobile

More a pub with food than a proper restaurant.
But a perfect place for a beer and a quick meal.
I watched a football game with friends while eating.
The Pizza with choirzo and blue cheese is recommended

“My local”
Reviewed December 23, 2011

Love F&B. 'Hyggelig' atmosphere, good pizzas. sometimes the wine pours can be kind of skimpy, but as the evening wears on the glasses get filled up more generously. Great outside seating and friendly bartenders.

Reviewed August 3, 2010

Excellent place on Oslo’s ”west side” in pleasant neighbourhood. Food is not bad at all, and client is mostly local neighbours.
English styled bar/pub showing football on big TV.
