This is what milady and I call a pub-shaped pub. It's what you think a good pub should be. It's pleasant, welcoming (when we walked in, milady's specs misted up and the barmaid instantly produced some tissues) and sells good beer. (Nethergate IPA and Adnams Southwold, which were both fine) what more could you want?
Well, decent sausage sarnies would be nice, and amazingly, you can get those too. We liked it

Great pub with good beer, (though the beer can be a bit warm in the summer months) No game machines and best of all no mobile phones in bar!

Have to say Gasperoos experience is the opposite to mine also.
Was back in the area at lunchtime and took the opportunity to drop in for a pint and a sarnie.
As I remember it being, well worth a visit on a sunny day with the bench seating outside the two entrances and then a sizeable green garden space further out to the front of the pub. And my pint of Nethergate IPA was spot on.
So in conclusion the Forest Gate Inn is a traditional old style country pub with a bit of character and if you’re in the Epping Forest area and after a stop for a relaxing decent pint of Ale, then this place would tick all the boxes in my experience.

Without doubt the best pub in and around Epping Forest - ignore review from gasperoo 28/12/08- the beer is always in good condition especially Adnams Broadside and the staff are invariably helpful and friendly - unlike the Mole Trap.

Mmmm - Nethergate was very tasty as was the Aspalls Dry, easily one of the best ciders on tap. The dog who was hiding under the table was also very accomodating and moved to another hiding place. Quiet (no teens) and jovial (few older locals) in equal measure plus a nice toasty fire to warm our cold legs after a 17 mile hike from Hoddesdon. It's always good to reach your destination but even better when that destination serves up decent beer with a smile.
