A warm welcome & a cold pint.

Whether you've stumbled in the door looking for a cold pint after completing a munro, want to sip fizz on a celebration holiday, or are just over in between ferries looking to quench your thirst on a hot day, the Old Forge bar has something for everyone. 

Cask ales and draught beer & cider come as standard, along with a wide range of craft beers, spirits, malt whiskeys and soft drinks for the weans. We aim to showcase all that Scotland has to offer and support local. Our house ale is brewed just up the road at Knoydart Brewery.

So come away in and see what we've got on offer!


Upcoming Sunday Session dates:

Sun 14th & 28th August. 6-10pm

Sun 11th & 25th Sept. 6-10pm

When the community took ownership of the pub, one of things that a lot of folk wanted to see return was music sessions. In days gone by the Old Forge was renowned for almighty sessions - at times 10 or 20 musicians squeezed around a couple of tables, the music fierce, the craic on high form, and tunes and songs filling the air until the wee small hours. 

We now have a regular, fortnightly schedule of Sunday Sessions - check out the dates on our Facebook event page.  If you're coming to the pub at another time and play an instrument please feel free to get a spontaneous session going, or pop us a message and we'll put the word round the locals to see who else can join in.

The Restaurant


The kitchen is in a bad state and requires significant upgrading, therefore at present we will serving drinks-only while we complete refurb works in 2022.


Please note that we are operating on a drinks-only basis for the 2022 season - this will allow us to complete essential refurbishment works on the kitchen. If you have made a restaurant booking with the previous owner for 2022 we are unable to honour your request and will start a fresh booking system once we have the kitchen operational.

Forge Filled Rolls

In collaboration with Knoydart Pottery and Tearoom, we are offering a small selection of delicious filled rolls, available to pub customers over the weekends. Folk are also welcome to enjoy takeaways in the pub while you have a pint, for example from Knoydart Woodfired Pizza or The Lookout Restaurant



We recently had our moorings dived and surveyed, and currently have six available for use.

Please get in touch via enquiries@theoldforge.co.uk if you would like more info.


Please be aware that private helicopter/small aircraft landing is not permitted in Inverie Village. The grassy area at the front of the pub is not large enough for safe landing, and the beach is tidal. Those wishing to fly in to Knoydart are advised to contact other landowners on the peninsula to find a suitable and safe landing area out with the village. Thank you.
