Situated across the road from 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: we have swing dancing on Mondays, our quiz is on Tuesdays as well as weekend DJs and a Vinyl Fair called ‘Dig A Little’ and open mic nights.
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.
