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

From 1st June 2017
Wye Valley Brewery – The Hopfather Red Ale – 17 (3.9%)

Brewed using Herefordshire Jester, Centennial and Goldings hops, The Hopfather is not to be underestimated. Smooth malty undertones belie the burst of tropical citrus and grapefruit flavours that tempt you with every sip, making this a red ale that is simply to die for.

Wimbledon Brewery – Tower SPA – – Code C127 – Pale Ale (4.5%)

As a nod to the original Wimbledon tower brewery, this SPA is golden amber in colour. Fruit, floral spice and orange on the aroma lead on to a full, rounded middle palate. It is completed with a satisfying bittersweet finish.

Lytham Brewery – Lytham Gold – (4.2%)

A locally brewed chestnut coloured ale, warm and well balanced with a hint of chocolate.
