Everything from the pasta to the chicken to the pizza was delicious and fresh.
Service was excellent.
Addicted to their crab linguine, amazing salads and exceptional wine list! We love sitting in the terrace area when the sun is shining it feels like you could be on holiday in any hot European country.
Fantastic experience at the Old Forge, lovely stuff who can’t do enough for you, stunning food and great atmosphere! Will definitely be back next time we’re in Cornwall!
Excellent experience, would highly recommend. Very relaxed evening with very efficient staff and very good food. Can't wait to go back.
Poor choice of drinks with distinctly average food & service. 'Salt' down the road is much better quality
I'm a regular at the Old Forge and it is always lovely.
From the moment we arrived we had a great feeling about the forge.. Very friendly helpful and COVID conscious staff ….plenty of room in a relaxing environment… The food was very tasty and good value for money … we would highly recommend it for anyone who wants a great night out Thank you.. we will be back and soon ❤️
Really great honest tasty food!! We couldn't fault what we ate delicious. Service was swift & they really helped us with our extra needs having a small child at the table. If you go anywhere when visiting the area be sure to reserve a seat here.
I have passed The Old Forge on many occasions over the last 20 years but this is the first time I have had a meal there and I found it was well above my expectations. Give it a go and be very pleasantly surprised.
Super breakfast before we headed off home
Staff were amazing and courtyard lovely
Couldn’t fault it although parking is a bit tricky
We were the only ones in the Old Forge but a little noisy due to climate protestors outside. It made for great entertainment though. Food as always was fantastic. Portions are great so don't over order. Cheesy dough balls were scrumptious. The Old Forge staff were great providing cold water and facilities to large amount of police overseeing the G7 protest. Lovely afternoon in outdoor courtyard with delicious food. They never fail to disappoint.
Staff we’re very friendly, efficient and informative. We knew there would be a wait, but in fact we’re served quicker than we anticipated.
The food was excellent and the service was impeccable and very reasonable price with a very good feeling when eating there.
Enjoyable, relaxed birthday lunch of pizza followed by an excellent sticky toffee pudding and tasty Black Forest cheesecake.
This restaurant is very local to us and we couldn't be happier. The
Old Forge is warm and cosy with a great covered outdoor area, which is lovely in summer and winter. The food is great, something for every taste and always the same great quality. Service is faultless, food comes in good time and the cocktails are very, very good. We are fans!
Great menu, excellent food and fantastic service. Thank you for a wonderful evening a real gem of a find!
Good range of dishes from starters to desserts.
Excellent, 2nd visit in a month - lovely vibe and great food!

Absolutely brilliant food, great gluten free options which I wasn’t expecting! The gluten free pizza base was so good.
Very good food, fresh, good quality and well presented.
Fantastic meal, great outdoor seating
Food and service excellent. Lovely outside area to relax over lunch. Really good wine as well.
Couldn’t fault! Amazing food, lovely service and nice ambience in outside area.
Fantastic food and service. Will definitely return.
Perfect, authentic food, amazing personable service. couldn't recommend enough!
Well it was all excellent from the arrival to paying the bill. Great food from the Italian choices on the menu i.e. bruschetta & calamari to start and crab linguine & vegetable risotto for mains. The tiramisu for dessert was top notch. A great early evening diner.
Fabulous food in a great setting. Can't wait to go back.
Lovely atmosphere on the outside dining area.
Great service from the ladies.
Very tasty vegan breakfast options, cake & delicious coffee
Wonderful end to our holiday , food and wine superb, ambience of restaurant excellent. Our 6 or 7 visit , never disappoints .

We had such a lovely meal for our wedding anniversary. The food was amazing! Gorgeous setting too.
Excellent - very friendly and good food and service
First times the old Forge and not disappointed. Service was good and the food was delicious . I had scotch egg for starters and crab linguine for my main. The portion size was generous and unfortunately I could not fit in a desert. Would definitely return next time we holiday in the best part of England!
Sat in the courtyard
Nice feeling and ambiance
Waiting staff were friendly and very helpful
Food was delicious and really good value
Would definitely return if we are in the area on holiday again
Great vegan food on offer. Wonderful setting and all round good vibe about the place.
Service wasn’t outstanding, but it’s a cute place and prices are reasonable. They have decent beers there, but nothing on tap. We both got pizza. My girlfriend enjoyed hers, as did most people there from what I could tell, but mine was a disgusting soggy greaseball mess that completely fell apart as soon as I tried to eat a bite. The cheesy dough ball starter was outstanding.
Lovely food, helpful staff, nice atmosphere, definitely recommend.
