Real Ale Club

We launched of our Real Ale Club in 2011 and welcome new members, you can join any time at the main bar.Members are supplied with a loyalty card which offers them a free pint of real ale after collecting 20 stamps, one stamp per pint of real ale.
We serve 3 real ales in the bar and are rolling two pumps on a barrel basis, to serve alongside Wye Valley HPA.

We have a good reputation for serving a well conditioned pint and have been included in The Good Beer Guide in 2014 , 2015 and 2017. Additionally we can keep you in touch via e mail of our rolling guest ales list. So if you are a real ale fan you can get involved at The Forest and join our real ale club. These are the real ales which we are looking to serve during May which will sit alongside our ever present Wye Valley HPA
