A warm and friendly gastropub in the heart of Forest Gate.

Formerly the Railway Tavern, but our fellow locals called us the Forest Tavern, so we changed our name to just that. On tap you will see cask ales alongside some great locally brewed craft beer, and when we say local, the barrels are literally rolled down the street!

Check out what's on our menu

Food is at the heart of our spacious dining room, from classic fish and chips to small plates with a twist. On Saturday's we have a brilliant brunch menu and on Sundays, generations gather round the table for generous portions of roast dinners with lashings of proper gravy.

The best Supper Club in all of Forest Gate!

Our monthly Supper Club is a night where we truly showcase the talents of Forest Tavern.
A menu and dining experience that speaks to all your senses, lovingly curated by our head chef and the kitchen team. With an exquisite wine list matched to perfection, our supper club is one not to be missed.

Check out when our next Supper Club is on this month below, and get ready to be wined and dined, whilst making some new friends along the way, here at the Forest Tavern.

The local area

Pop down to the market in the clock tower at the weekend, a must for a great selection of local food and crafts. Every year Forest Gate holds a brilliant festival with music, street performers and activities for families and kids to enjoy!
