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
Nicely cooked food. Pizza delicious they have their own pizza oven apparently.
Fairly prices and good service.
Lovely Italian restaurant with great pizza and friendly, attentive staff. We had a really enjoyable dinner here and I would really recommend it!
Our food was excellent, especially the crab linguine and scotch egg starter. The antipasti starter which my husband had was substantial and very tasty. Staff very friendly and helpful especially with gluten free alternatives. It's our 2nd visit and equally as good as the first. Highly recommended.
I love The Old Forge - I've eaten there many times (for breakfast) and it's one of the best breakfasts around. The quality of the food is top class, and there is plenty of it (in fact, today, the breakfast beat me and I had to leave some). The staff are happy to stop and chat if they have time - and I did not feel under any pressure to leave.
Food is made to a very high standard, everything is homemade and all elements of the meal were well balanced. Would definitely recommend
As always lunch didn't disappoint. I have a food intolerance which was catered for without any fuss. Meal arrived very promptly and was delicious.
The food and atmosphere was lovely. Parking wasn’t ideal but we found a space round the corner and the food was worth it! Staff are lovely also, really recommend here (especially the carbonara).
We had the small cooked breakfast which was very good. The atmosphere is always good and tables organised very well taking into account the present restrictions.
The service is good and staff very helpful.
A very substantial breakfast in a lovely setting - attentive staff and overall a great meal - would thoroughly recommend!
Good setting, good service and excellent food and drink
Great pizza and risotto. Lovely staff. Been several times, never disappointed.
Had a lovely evening meal, would recommend a visit
Good food , great service a lovely evening . Will be going back with other family members and friends.
Food and service excellent
Everything fabulous as always . Definitely recommended.
Amazing food and friendly staff. Would definitely come here again.
Lovely bistro; was expecting a pub “Old Forge” with Ales and pub fair so was intrigued with the style. The steak meal was truly outstanding and the pizza very good. Overall the atmosphere was efficient rather than warmly inviting.
Food was exceptional and service was great.
Gorgeous little place, food was fab!
Great as always
Absolutely delicious food and a really warm and welcoming atmosphere. The heated outdoor patio is under cover and really comfortable seating, didn’t even feel like we were sat outside. The staff were lovely. I would highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to coming back again really soon.
Absolutely delicious food and lovely friendly service. Best Fiorentina pizza ever. Crab Linguini to die for. Heavenly panna cotta. I could go on! We will definitely visit again.
We had chicken burger which was excellent with a delicious tomato sauce on brioch bun. The bun was scorched perfectly and brie melted deliciously into very good bacon. Excellent pickled cucumber too.
Outstanding food, staff were wonderful! Great vibe, music and feel
Will be back !
Always good food and service with lovely friendly staff
Brilliant as usual ☺️
Just lovely 🥰
Food was delicious. Couldn’t fault it. Service was great.
We booked in for breakfast before the journey home at the end of our holiday. What great find! We had the full English breakfast and would safely say it is the best one we have had, very tasty and plentiful! All hot and delicious. The place and atmosphere is great, staff very friendly and attentive. Would not hesitate in recommending here and will definitely book next time we holiday in the area.
Lovely meal as always and a great night was had by all.
A lot bigger than it looks, we sat inside and the tables were distanced nicely and it felt covid safe. I had an antipasti board which was amazing! All the food looked good to be honest. Would definitely go back.
The food is lovely, the service friendly and helpful.
Lovely food we ate there for dinner and breakfast, great atmosphere and great friendly staff ☺️Will definitely be returning
Food, service, staff all excellent, that’s why we keep returning
Went to the Old Forge whilst on holiday with family. The food menu although easy and simple is cooked perfectly and we really enjoyed the meal. Service was excellent and the overall atmosphere of the restaurant was very relaxing
