Included this pub in our pub crawl of Billericay. Top staff behind the bar great vibe and tasty food. We all had burgers and chicken strips and all good. They do a Sunday roast and will be trying that out soon.

Enjoyed the meal, although I didn't get the dessert because I couldn't wait any longer. Really good value, but don't be in a hurry.

Firstly, I'd like to compliment the Forge by saying how great and friendly they're towards their customers. I've often popped into the Forge for some grub and I have to say that the food has always been fantastic, along with it services.

Five of us (all guys) fancied a few beers and some munch for lunch and the chosen venue was the Forge. Nice vibe in the pub with friendly staff. We all had steak baguettes and was no prob for chef to add cheese or onions whatever we wanted really. Reccomended thanks to all.
