Enjoy one of our local ales in our homely bar.
As essential parts of the hotel, the Forest Lodge boasts two intimate, beamed public bar areas with open fires. At any one time we have a selection of four different cask ales on offer in addition to Charles Wells’ ‘Bombardier Bitter’ which is permanently available.
We have been independently accredited by ‘Cask Marque’ and appear in The Good Beer Guide. We are regularly in touch with traditional breweries, both local and national, and are constantly striving to introduce new beers for our customers to try.
The Thompson Family and all the staff are very proud of their achievements. Indeed the Forest Lodge has been voted “Nottinghamshire pub of the year” 2011, as well as “Pub of the season summer 2011, winter 2012 and spring 2015. We also have been recently awarded ” North Nottinghamshire Pub of the year 2013 “.
Please note that we also are collaborating with Welbeck Abbey Brewery who brew on our behalf The Forest Lodge English pale ale – 3.6%, a light golden hoppy session ale.
We’re just 5 minutes walk from the forest, so why not come and enjoy a refreshing local ale in our welcoming pub?
As well as reasonable prices, you can expect a hearty welcome and a vibrant pub atmosphere.
