Pulled in on a crazy busy Easter Monday lunchtime without a reservation- front of house was super pleasant and quickly sorted out a table for us - food was awesome for all four of us - the untamed turkey was a great beer

Stopped in for some lunch after walking. Quite busy but got a table. Friendly staff, really yum food, great selection for Veg hubby. Lots of great flavours. Will definitely come back when next in Forest.

A perfect place for great local beers and excellent food. Service was speedy and friendly even though it was busy. The Boa Buns with pork belly were sensational; as was the generous serving of a salmon based pasta from the specials menu. I'd certainly be...classified a 'foodie' by friends and don't give undeserved praise. A strong recommend from me!More

Excellent spot for family meal. We had a group of 16 for lunch and the outdoor tables where perfect on a nice summers deal. The staff are friendly & efficient and the meals big, hearty and very tasty. We mainly had the burgers & fish...and chips. The beer selection is interesting with a taste for everyone.More

Came to the Forrest Brewing Company by chance after seeing the redwoods in the Ottawa’s. This is a little gem that serves good coffee, great beer (the stout was amazing) and surprisingly has a great offering of vegan foods alongside a great regular menu. We...shared the shiitake bao as a snack- lovely. Cute outside eating area and nice staff.More

The Forrest brewery is a well established set up offering great food, local wines and really good beers. The beers are all brewed on site, you can see the brew room through the window at the rear of the restaurant. There's ample seating inside and...out. The facilities are clean. There's plenty of mountain bike trails in the area and the brewery makes for a great place to finish a ride at.More

Went to Forrest Brewery during a weekend in the Otways (staying at Apollo Bay) and would highly recommend it. Service was super friendly, the beers were delicious and the food was awesome. If you’re in the region then definitely worth paying them a visit.

Great spot to have a brew and bite to eat on a road trip. Terrific range of beers and good food. Happy diners like us enjoying the fresh air and sunshine. Friendly service. Be sure to book on weekends.

Great quality food, friendly staff, gorgeous popular, quirky little pub. Lamb souvlaki and felafel with beetroot were yum!

Fab food and doing their best to get people in and out. My one complaint was the server wore her mask under her nose the entire time and fiddled with it a lot then put her fingers in the glasses to move them and leaned...in close to talk. Seemed really inappropriate. We didnt say anything but felt uncomfortable. A bit of covid training would be good considering people were packed in.More
