Only a stone’s throw from Wansted Flats in North East London, The Forest Tavern is a community pub much like its residents.

Formerly the Railway Tavern, the Forest Tavern boasts six real ale pumps and 2 t-bars; our fine selection of ales rotates monthly and our extensive wine list has something to match every meal or occasion. We have a small British seasonal menu and list of Specials to tickle the taste buds, or if you just want a nibble, we offer a range of bar snacks. In summer months we have a barbecue in our new beer garden, while also offering a delicious traditional Sunday roast through the year.

Forest Tavern offers a wide selection of events running most weeks: a monthly Vinyl Fair, Dig A Little and the Funk Soul Disco Revolutions. If you want a late night boogie, we have DJs spinning records every second Friday, or you can have a shake to some Brazilian Beats at Vinyl Junkie party every last Friday of the month.

As well as DJs, we have a range of bands for your musical pleasure. Come and have a listen or ask our friendly bar staff to find out what’s happening on any given day.​
