Wednesday 6th March. First Wednesday lunch, 12 for 1230 hours. The Old Forge Inn, A38, Whitminster, GL2 7NY. Click here for Menu.
On the A38 at Whitminster, pass the entrance to the Chinese and Whitminster Inn. Joined on is the Fish & ChipThe publicas shop and a grocers store in the same complex. Turn immediately left. The Old Forge Inn is on the corner of the A38 and the lane you turned onto.
Note: The publican, George Rose is ex Navy. He took it over in April 2023 and it looks like he has a lot of work to do as the pub is a bit run down inside, though the dining tables look new. Anyway, he is delighted to welcome us and its good that we support an ex Forces chap by giving his pub a try. All the menu prices have been discounted by £2 per item which gives us a very good deal.
