We have been lucky to visit the Forge on a number of occasions, the staff and owners always make you feel welcome and at home. Sitting on the lovely rustic patio, enjoying the lush scenery is always a pleasure. The food is excellent, this one is not to be missed if you are in the area. Always check opening times... More

Certainly the best the area has to offer. We have been twice this week already and we can't wait to return on Sunday. Just open at lunchtimes at the moment but they serve until 3pm. The owners are terrific and the server is delightful. The restaurant is very pretty with a jazz theme and laid back music playing. Then there... More

My wife and I arrived a couple of minutes early, were warmly met by the proprietor and his team, settled into the bar with an appero and the menus. We choose with the help... More

The atmosphere, with Jazz as a theme is cosy, the view is beatiful and the food is excellent. One is greeted as a friend when you arrive.
