Situated across the road for the Forest Gate railway station, The Forest Tavern is and always has been a community pub for the area..
Formerly the Railway Tavern, the Forest Tavern has six real ale pumps and 2 t-bars; our ales rotate monthly and our wine list has something to match every meal or occasion. We have an ever changing seasonal menu and list of Specials to tickle the taste buds, or if you just want a nibble, we offer a range of bar snacks. In summer months we have a barbecue in our beer garden, while always offering a traditional Sunday roast throughout the year. As well as this we are also holding food tasting nights and are happy to cater for private functions if our back room is to be hired out for parties or get togethers.
Forest Tavern offers a wide selection of events running most weeks: a monthly Vinyl Fair called ‘Dig A Little’ and the Funk Soul Disco Revolutions. If you fancy a late night boogie, we have DJs spinning records every second Friday, or you can have a shake to some Brazilian Beats at Vinyl Junkie party every last Friday of the month.
As well as DJs, we have a range of bands for your musical pleasure. Come and have a listen or ask our friendly bar staff to find out what’s happening on any given day.
