About the Pub

Classic Truman's pub, still with original outside decoration and detail, was the Forest Hill Tavern, hence why the buses that terminate outside still have that destination! Inside is open plan with a large bar at one side and a mixture of tables & chairs and sofas. There are open fires and some of the wood panelling survives. Outside the large garden is now mainly covered thanks to a large canopy providing protection from the elements. There are 6 handpumps with one given over to cider. Under Laine management and refurbished in January 2016.
