    The Forest now has an updated menu and food presentation was excellent. Staff are very well mannered and very hard working. All in all we had a very good evening.

    We went there for a team lunch and the food was very good. We were a table of 9. 7 meals came out at once and then the last 2 arrived some 25 minutes later. Not ideal as we are on our work lunch break and everyone else at the table who had been served felt bad to start eating their meals without the 2 that were waiting. Other than that, great venue. Super clean and hygienic and helpful staff.

    Thank you for the review Samantha. We apologise that your experience was not at the standard we set, we will make sure this does not occur again!

    The lamb shanks were not falling off the bone and my husband thought they might have been frozen before cooking - had to cut the meat off the bone. All the other meals we have had in the past have been fine tho.

    Forest Hotel (Owner)

    Thank you Sandy for your feedback! We apologise that your food was not up to our standard and i have passed your feedback onto our Head Chef so this does not occur again.

    Unfortunately, I called to ascertain I wanted to see if a booth was to be reserved in the bistro area (with decorative plants) and was told it was all booked in. We showed up for our booking to our disappointment, were allocated a table in the noisy sports bar. We were then given a table on the outside area in the cold. Not long after we noticed a booth was clear but no follow up from service if we wanted to move inside. For a Father’s Day weekend we wanted a warm meal in a quiet booth as requested and received a cold reception and disorganised booking. As locals to Forest hotel (beacon hill) we were dissatisfied with the way our booking was handled.

    Forest Hotel (Owner)

    Thank you for the feedback Myriam, we apologise that you did not receive your wanted seating. I can conform that this will be avoided as much as possible with future bookings and i have looked into the reasoning for this mistake to make sure this does not happen again. We hope to see you again soon!

    All in all it was nice. Friends I brought were happy. Food quality declined a bit when it’s busy . I just hope they read notes to the booking coz I felt like they didn’t read my note when I requested for specific table. It’s still good so yeah smile (:

    Forest Hotel (Owner)

    Thank you for the feedback. We apologies that we were not able to meet your booking requirements. Hope to see you again soon!

    It seems to be hit and miss at the Forest Hotel. Unfortunately last night was a miss. My Barramundi Schnitzel was deep fried and oily. Not worth $28. When we arrived someone had taken our booked table and we were forced to sit next to a loud family table. They allowed their children to run around all the tables playing chasings. I have 3 boys. There's a time and a place for running games. Not a pleasant evening. Got out as quickly as possible!

    Forest Hotel (Owner)

    Hi Deborah, Thank you for your feedback. We deeply apologise about your experience you had with the food not being up to standard. I have passed your feedback along to our head chef so it can be looked over, as giving our guests the best experience is always our aim and priority. We hope to see you again!

    Usually love eating here but last night the pizzas were terrible. Bases were soggy and undercooked. One pizza was served a lot later than the rest of our meals even though it was in the same order of 5 meals which seemed odd. Staff were friendly.

    Forest Hotel (Owner)

    Thank you the feedback Samantha, we apologise that your experience was not up to our standard. We have passed your feedback on to our head Chef to make sure this issue doesn't happen again. We hope to see you again soon!!

    A really nice steak with plenty of veggies. It's good that you can pick your sides - chips, slaw, mash or veggies and choice of sauce. Our meals came out really quickly.

    Thank you for the review Deborah. Glad to hear that you enjoyed the food. Can not wait to see you again soon!!

    The venue is comfortable and a great place for a long lunch. I will happily return. Today I ordered the Seafood Risotto special which unfortunately was a somewhat bland. A little salmon would have made all the difference.

    Thank you for your feedback Jo. Glad to hear that you enjoyed the venue. Can not wait to see you again!!

    Unfortunately we arrived at the same time as a huge birthday group so our meals were slow to come out. I don't mind this if the quality is good but not this time. My Teriyaki Salmon wasn't anywhere near as good as last time. Came with cold noodles and big chunks of raw cabbage. Not very interesting.

    Forest Hotel (Owner)

    Thank you for your feedback Deborah. We apologise that the food wasn't up to our standard. We'll pass on our feedback to our chefs to ensure it won't happen again. We hope to see you again!
