Service was very gòod, no atmosphere, the food was average with not much flavour, slightly over priced regarding the whole experience.

There were only two tables occupied when we were there at 3pm. We were expected and greeted by the waiter. I found the service was poor and the waiter was not attentive. We were not offered a choice of teas and the cake and sandwiches were uninspiring.

A lovely restaurant and good food with one exception - the pigs trotter was awful. Luckily they kindly replaced it for another meal free of charge but it really should be taken off the menu in the opinion of our table of 6.

Superb service, excellent food and a decent wine list.... what more could one want! We met at Forbury's for lunch as it was a half-way point. We enjoyed our experience so much that we have decided to meet at Forbury's again next time.

Brilliant lunch with family. Serve, food and drinks where fantastic. Atmosphere only rated 3 as we were there for lunch and it was rather quite. Value is only rated at 4 as there was no side dish provided with the mullet, the other dishes came with mashed potato, chips and a vegetable side. No complaints though just an observation!

We visited the restaurant on Saturday 19th and we had a really lovely time. My daughter Emmy has additional needs and she is deaf, she doesn’t usually eat much but really enjoyed her food that the chef made especially for her. Thank you for having us, we will come again!
