We went as a 2 couple party. On arrival we were shown to our table which was a tight squeeze. The menu looked interesting and we couldn't wait to try the food. We ordered starters and mains. 3 starters came out ok, but the 4th was completely wrong (mushrooms were ordered but wings came out!). We were offered the wings... More

My Mum in Law lives within a mile or so of The Forge. She is 92 and really enjoys eating there. The pub is extremely well run and serves good pub grub. The last time we ate there I booked the last slot for lunch which was 4.30. When asked if there were any special requests I just put that... More

Booked a table a week ago because last minute tables are always hard to find on Sunday. Decided not to go with their Traditional Sunday lunch which never disappoints and had mixed grill instead. Cooked and presented perfectly. All the staff are kept busy but always make the customers feel important to the business. Well done. No complaints.

Went for Dinner with family and friends, have not eaten here before. Menu had a great choice, but not too much, which I think is always a great sign. Fish and Chips, Steaks, mixed grill, burgers starting at just over £11 ish. Pub is lovely inside and out. Also - there is a private dining room which looked great (was... More

Reading the other reviews (especially the one about the customers prompted to leave on dressing code grounds) I feel a bit puzzled and disappointed because we what have experienced was nothing but negative. I,three friends and kid arrived there after desperately seeking for a pub with empty spots on Saturday night without prior booking (and absolutely casual dressing). They have... More

My friends and I are working on a project at the nearby Glenfield hospital and given the time of year, are in search of a suitable establishment to host an evening of food & drinks for 20+ people to celebrate a successful year as a local business within the village of Glenfield. Upon arrival (in which there was no available... More
