1st Feb 2011 - Outside the Flowers of the Forest you are greeted with just that - lovely hanging baskets of flowers adoring the front of the pub. The pub is situated on the corner of two roads and the approach to the pub is certainly pleasant, the only hint that the flowered theme may not continue is the feeling that the pub could be sponsored by Sky Sports. Huge banners advertising televised sport fill the gaps between the hanging baskets.
The warm welcome to the pub falters as you enter. The decor is curious - two old style electric fires sit on the walls and what can only be described as an external roof comes down over the top of the bar. Whilst the pub looks old from the outside it has the feel of a pub built in the 80s. The layout is very open and centered around the bar that sits against the back wall.
The woman working behind the bar was friendly. There was a distinct lack of real ale so you were stuck with lager whilst watching one of the many flat screen TVs. To keep you entertained there was a pool table and jukebox.
The locals were welcoming, if in a somewhat unnerving way. Once you realised that they were perfectly harmless the evening was relatively calm, with the interjection from time to time of a bit of banter.
I would describe the pub as nothing more than OK. I am sure that it serves the locals well, and if I was thirsty and passing I would call in, but it isn’t a pub that I would seek out again on purpose.
