Welcome to the

Forest Tavern

Forest Tavern intro image


Formerly the Railway Tavern, due to the proximity to Forest Gate station, the people of Forest Gate now know us as the Forest Tavern. 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!

Food is at the heart of the spacious dining room, from classic fish and chips to small plates with a twist. On Sundays, generations gather round the table for generous portions of roast dinners with lashings of proper gravy, whilst the main bar is filled with the crackle of the open fire (usually with a dog in front of it) Sunday papers, and the week’s gossip.

If inside is full or the weather is behaving, choose between two gardens to enjoy your favourite tipple, and relax, what more could you need?
