Sep 28, 2023 | Latest News

The Forge Restaurant has earned a Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Award for 2023.

Located at Hotel Indigo Chester, The Forge has quickly built a successful repudiation as one of Chester’s best restaurants thanks mainly to its delicious food and unrivalled service.

Tripadvisor, the world’s leading travel review site, have been running their Travelers’ Choice Awards since 2002. They showcase the best restaurants in multiple categories and regions, based on the reviews and opinions of millions of diners from around the world. The awards are decided from the views of real-life diners’ insights collected over a 12-month period on the Tripadvisor platform.

By earning Travellers’ Choice Award, The Forge has shown itself as a restaurant among the top 10% of all listings on Tripadvisor, with consistently strong reviews and demonstrating a commitment to hospitality excellence.

This recognition follows Hotel Indigo Chester recently winning the Gold Accommodation Award in the 2023 Taste Chester Awards.

Scott Rankin, General Manager at Hotel Indigo Chester and The Forge, was naturally delighted to be double award winners. He said: “After winning the at the Taste Chester Awards, this further proves what we are doing here at Hotel Indigo Chester and The Forge.

“There’s been an awful lot of hard work gone in over the last 12 months or so – in a very changing world of hospitality. Receiving recognition for that, directly from our guests and visitors is a very rewarding achievement for all the teams’ efforts.”

John Boris, Chief Growth Officer at Tripadvisor, praised all of this year’s winners. He said: “Congratulations to the 2023 Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice winners.

“The travel resurgence we’ve seen throughout the past year has even further heightened the competition. Earning a Travellers’ Choice Award demonstrates that you have provided great experiences to those who matter most: your guests.

“With changing expectations, continued labour shortages, and rising costs, this is no easy feat, and I am continually impressed with the hospitality industry’s resilience and ability to adapt. Cheers to another successful year.”
