Situated across the road for the Forest Gate railway station, The Forest Tavern is and always has been a community pub for the area..
Formerly the Railway Tavern, the Forest Tavern has six real ale pumps and 2 t-bars; our ales rotate monthly and our 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 beer garden, while always offering a traditional Sunday roast throughout the year.
Forest Tavern offers a wide selection of events running most weeks: a monthly Vinyl Fair called ‘Dig A Little’ and the Funk Soul Disco Revolutions. If you fancy 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.
