The Forest Inn is part of The Seafood Pub Company and is in the village of Fence, not far from Burnley.
Inside it is very modern and contemporary, with a large garden to the rear, with plenty of outdoor seating, for sunny warmer days.
I contacted The Forest Inn to ask if a dish on the menu, Imam Biyaldi could be veganised and I received a very positive reply from Ryan, to say no problem, so I booked to meet up for lunch with a friend, who lives nearby.
When I arrived and explained to the waitress my correspondence with Ryan, she had a word with chef, who said he could also make me a vegan paella, which is very accommodating.
The dish was a good hearty portion, served with plain rice, was tasty and delicious and I easily polished it off. We had great service off the waitress looking after us, who was very friendly and helpful too.
I will return to The Forest Inn, as it is a nice lunch spot and although manic at night, during the day, it is a lovely dining venue and of course I need to try that vegan paella.
