No issues at all, apart from the barman’s extremely grumpy, verging I’m aggressive tone about face coverings-I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt and say it may have been the 50th time he’d said it, but really-no need

I have visited the Fort Restaurant several times since Covid-19 restrictions were eased. The staff and the service they provide is excellent as is the food. While the screens and other safety measures do impact slightly on the atmosphere, they provide a safe environment to relax and enjoy the food. However, I so look forward to the eventual reopening of the outstanding Borgatora Restaurant, temporarily closed to accommodate the distancing measures in the Fort.

Booked at table in the beer garden and were not disappointed, really great effort in creating a nice atmosphere. Excellent service, extremely friendly but professional, didn't get his name but a real gentleman, couldn't do enough for us.

Service and atmosphere in particular are difficult to assess given the government's policies covering hospitality sector but fort did very well in sticking to the legislation while providing a good atmosphere in difficult circumstances.

We were in the beer garden but unfortunately not at a table with a heater. We would have stayed longer if there had been one.

We were finally using a voucher that we got as a Christmas present from our sons. Since restaurant’s have reopened my wife has been reluctant to eat out anywhere. I am so glad we decided to make The Forte our first eating out experience. It was so organised and we felt very comfortable and safe. We will definitely be back very soon!

Very friendly staff, always up for a laugh and joke. Food was delicious with very generous portions, my only regret was not getting the full-sized battered fish - best I’ve ever had! Furniture was socially distanced, yet it still felt like old times to me. Will definitely be coming back!
