Forest Lodge Hotel, Edwinstowe
Set in the heart of Sherwood Forest, Robin Hood Country, the Forest Lodge was formally a coaching inn from the early 18th century and has changed hands many times as a traditional English Inn. However, it was a tea shop for a brief period in the 1940's and is only a 15 minute walk from Robin Hood's hiding place, the Major Oak, which sits in what was formerly once one of the largest forests in England and popular for hunting. (An aside: the vast majority of Sherwood Forest was felled to make way for the increasing development of farming methods and ship building, and much of its land was sold off to wealthy individuals and hence why it has since become known as 'the Dukeries'). This is a warm, friendly and traditionally English country pub that has an open door approach to all of its local and visiting customers. Stroll in after a days walking around Sherwood Forest and park yourself in front of the cosy open log fire to enjoy some of the country's best real ales, along with a broad range of tasty home prepared snacks and bar meals. There is an eclectic range of guest beers - normally a selection of four on the pumps. Whatever your expectations you will be sure to enjoy the Forest Lodge, ideally situated in beautiful surroundings of Sherwood Forest and the Dukeries Estate, with fabulous guest beers, hearty food and a warm hospitality from such a historic venue.
