Bobs Smithy Inn & Old Forge is a rural country Pub and Restaurant located in Bolton. The owners, Lorraine and Stewart Brookes along with their son Jordan have ran this successful business for the past 25 years.
Situated close to Rivington and the surrounding area, the views of Greater Manchester from the Pub are exceptional and is ideal for walkers and sightseeing. Only 2 miles from the Macron Stadium (home of Bolton Wanderers) its an ideal location for travelling fans.
We stopped for lunch and what a joy. Proper pie and chips, proper beer and good Bolton hospitality. Thanks
Another great meal at Bobs Smithy. We all had the homemade pies and Jam Roly Poly for dessert. The food was amazing and staff were attentive as always.
Thank you to Lorraine, Stewart and staff for your wonderful welcome, food and banter, we have become regulars over the last 3 years and we cannot recall a bad meal or drink, highly recommended, thanks, David and Clare D
Great surroundings with a nice inviting restaurant. Very nice hosts & staff. The meal was fabulous from excellent chefs. Recommending to our friends & family.
