Forest Lodge

4 Church Street, EDWINSTOWE, NG21 9QA

This 18th-century coaching inn stands on the edge of Sherwood Forest opposite the church where Robin Hood is supposed to have married Maid Marian. Sympathetically restored by the Thompson family over the past decade or so, it includes stylish accommodation and a comfortable restaurant and bar. Award-winning cask ales are always on tap in two beamed bars warmed by open fires. An impressive baronial-style dining hall is an ideal setting for wholesome fare that changes to reflect the seasons; be sure to consider the venison pavé, leek textures, black pudding, fondant potatoes and stout reduction on a winter menu. All-time favourites are on offer too of course, and include beef and ale pie; home-made beef chilli; and battered fish fillet and hand-cut chips.
