“We had Sunday lunch at The Old Forge at Bob’s Smithy’s Inn and would strongly recommend!
We told staff when we booked about my son’s nut and sesame allergy, and they were so well prepared for us. The waitresses checked and double checked everything on the menu (the flour used for the yorkshire puddings had a “may contain” warning so we had to avoid) and we really felt that care had been taken over his meal. The owner/manageress also came over at the end of the meal to check that everything had been ok, in particular regarding my son and his allergy. In addition, the food was lovely and freshly prepared, and we’ll certainly be going back with the boys.
(The manageress also told us that a lady had been in earlier who was a vegan, and she had asked if she could bring in her own food to eat. They had refused as you’d expect, but one of the reasons they gave for their refusal was that it was important that the chef knew what was in everything in his kitchen, and he couldn’t have food prepared by someone else in there in case it caused a problem/cross contamination – in particular as a little boy was coming in later with a nut allergy and they were not prepared to take any risks!).”
