Absolutely fabulous food at a great price. The waitresses were very professional, polite and efficient. Would not hesitate to recommend this venue. Brilliant evening.
Couldn’t recommend this place more, the service food and ambience are all just spot on!
Food was excellent as was service. Highly recommend
This was the best meal we have had in a long time. Delighted to have found this gem. Food surpassed many more expensive restaurants. Would thoroughly recommend.
Excellent food and service. Made to feel welcolm and not rushed.
Such a beautiful place. Ideal for small get togethers, dates and other occasions. Food was sublime. We had the chicken burger, crab linguine and GF carbonara. Each dish looked and tasted amazing.
This restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu is largely Mediterranean in style with lots of Italian dishes. You can have a light meal through to a three course lunch or dinner by just varying your choice. They have vegan and gluten free menus with better choices than you usually see. Seating is available inside and out (under the covered terrace area). It does get busy so I would advise booking to avoid disappointment.
The food was very well described by the staff we were all very satisfied with our choices. We can highly recommend this restaurant
Garlic bread burnt but that was taken off bill rissoto lovely
Food was good quality and tasty. Coffee less so. Service good.
Excellent food, great service and friendly staff. Would definitely recommend.
Six of us came here for dinner during a stay in the area. It was absolutely amazing, from the squid, to the pizzas to the dough balls (savoury & dessert ones) the food was excellent & we all really enjoyed our meals. Service was also great and lovely atmosphere. Would recommend and hope to come back!
Great food - GREAT good and excellent service - really enjoyed the entire experience
Excellent food and service !
We had lunch at the Forge which was delicious. I had a small portion, good presentation. Often small portions for children never look appetising
Authentic carbonara, probably the best we’ve had . Plus a tasty side salad.The men had a BLT and a steak and blue cheese ciabatta, again both absolutely delicious.
Cocktails just wonderful!
Carbonara with Cocktails, we could of been in Italy 🇮🇹
Excellent food in a small intimate restaurant. Would go again.
We had a brillIant evening. Food was excellent and a lovely atmosphere.
We had a lovely evening, the food was top notch and the staff were absolutely brilliant.
We had a fabulous time at the Old Forge. We were welcomed to our table, given enough time to relax and get our drinks.
Our server was lovely and took her time with us.
The food was so delicious, I highly recommend either the Crab Linguini or the Carbonara. Everything tasted incredibly fresh and we were surrounded by their lovely deli offering.
Thank you for looking after us guys!
Great food and attentive staff. Well done
Really enjoyed the food, good service and nice friendly staff
Staff are friendly and welcoming, food is delicious and the I love the feel of the outdoor covered area. Can't wait to visit again!
Lovely outside/inside area perfect for a slightly rainy evening.
Service was attentive and non intrusive, additional drinks were offered in a timely manner. We both had pizza and they were fantastic. Would highly recommend.
Another fabulous meal excellent service and can not fault!
Fantastic meal, ambience and service; nothing too much trouble. Definitely recommend
Amazing service and the food is so delicious, the cheesy doughballs are the best I've had 👌
This is just the nicest restaurant and the food is delicious. The service and the wait staff are just brilliant. Such a lovely friendly restaurant - wish we lived closer and could visit more often - but whenever we visit my mother we stop in for lunch - pre booked of course!
We particularly like the Crab Linguine and my husband loves the Steak Melt. The puddings are gorgeous!
The home made soup is also always excellent and lovely bread.
Also do not forget to look at the items for sale in their loovley Deli section!
Gorgeous food at reasonable prices! Lovely atmosphere and a good section of drinks would highly recommend!
Nothing wrong with the food, nice but a little pricey. I would go back but I would like to see more of a varied menu.
Fabulous food - a gem of a find - should not be missed of your in the area ! Something from everyone on the menu

Excellent Italian inspired restaurant well spaced tables and good Covid precautions
Great Italian dishes: bruschetta, arancini, crab linguine and pasta carbonara. Excellent service.
Consistently good, excellent food and service. The pizza is superb and so too is the crab linguine.
Great atmosphere and lovely staff - can’t recommend it highly enough.
We absolutely enjoyed a lovely lunch along with a delicious bottle of Portugese wine. Excellent happy service, we will return.
Well, where to begin….. I’m not one to normally leave a review because I’m not a Karen and have better things to do with my time than leave very wordy reviews that don’t actually really talk about the review review.
The parking was excellent. All four wheels were adequately placed in a safe area among other beautifully parked vehicles. I even think l one was a classic Morris reminding me of my days away with lovers.
If anything, the gravel area of parking is a little to jagerty. But that’s a review I will be leaving for the gravel company. Not that I leave many reviews review.
The ambience was exquisite. With rumblings of mellow pop culture coming from the Sonos sound system. Not to loud to blow my drums but loud enough to muffle the dulcet tones of my wife telling me about her day.
Food wise we were presented with what we ordered and my my my what a lovingly prepared breakfast meal one was about to have.
I think my wife also enjoyed it. It was hard to say from her ageing face. If anything it was nice to have some peace.
Anywhoo, coffee was exceptional, breakfast was exquisite and the service reminded me of my time as a submarine engineer aboard HMS721 in the 80’s. Solid and assertive but knowingly cared for through the motions of hospitality.
Above all, my review of this establishment is the best and as an influencer I am the best. I even paid as the crew pretended not to know who I am which was a nice touch.
Excellent excellent excellent!
Lovely setting, food was amazing and perfect for couples and families
The food I had was flavoursome and the ambiance was just right
