Forest Lodge Hotel
Time Out says
A uni haunt that’s all about the craft fun
The Forest Lodge is a diamond in the rough. From the outside this brown brick local doesn’t look like much, but inside there’s a decent feed, plenty of space, a warm welcome and a surprisingly excellent craft beer collection.
They focus on local brews like Modus Operandi, Wayward, Gang of Four, Murray’s and Badlands, while Coopers, New and Reschs keep the lager dream alive. The Sydney Uni crew and Inner West locals love the Flodge equally, and it’s a family-friendly joint if you have little ones in tow.
The menu is massive - it starts at wings, fried and squid, moves through pizzas to burgers/hot sambos, steaks, pasta and salads, and on a Wednesday you can feed yourself for a fiver with a meatball roll.
Keep restless hands busy with Street Fighter, pinball and pool, or just pull up a stool for some craft beer capers is comfy surrounds. Anything goes here.
