The Forge Inn gave me exactly what I have been looking for, but have so far failed to find, in a vegetarian Sunday lunch. I opted for the chestnut mushroom pie which was served with buttery mash, green beans and veggie gravy. I ordered roasted new potatoes and cauliflower cheese sides to share with the others in our party. The... More

Came in for lunch on Sunday over the Bank Holiday weekend. Plenty of room in the car park, not too busy inside either. We booked our table online the night before and there were no problems seating us when we got there. Staff were really friendly and attentive, we weren't forgotten even though we were sitting in a quiet corner... More

Two friends and I, met at the forge for a midweek treat. We had pre booked our table but were early but the table was ready anyway and we were shown to our seats. It's not an extensive menu however the food does not disappoint. I had the pesto chicken pasta which was simple, but very tasty. My friends had... More

As always, Sam, Kirsty and the team looked after us brilliantly. I love the private dining room at the Forge - makes for a private affair, yet you still feel part of the pub. Can't fault the place

Had an appointment at Glenfield hospital and came out just on lunchtime so had a look on iPhone for a nearby recommendation and the Forge Inn came up only 7 minutes away, so off we set. The Inn sits on the roadside with large car park to the side and rear, on entering the large bar is right in front... More

Please bring back the chicken pudding on your menu! Or at least have the option available as a special every weekend... It will make your menu more than perfect!! 5* plus!
