Had some beers and a coffee, nice place with atmosphere. Expensive beer, but that's what you get in Oslo.

People (me included) tend to underestimate the food served at pubs, as it is in most cases it is just some sloppy grub that patrons wash down with beer in a hope to avoid a hangover the next day. That is why I go surprised when I found Forest & Brown, a pub that serves good food! Whatever I have... More

This has been our favorite neighborhood pub for years. However after a visit this evening we are never going back. The bartender was rude and unfriendly, and way out of line.

This use to be one of the nice pubs on a fancier block. But uanfortonally this has became one of so many places in Oslo with inexperienced staff and the lack of knowledge. The service is arrogant and goes by "they know it all" but really don`t have a clue whats up. Food is overpriced with no fantasy. To have... More

I went with work colleagues, total of 5, and each had either a burger or a pizza. I ordered a Pizza Entrecote and a few pints of ale. They were ready in about 15min. The staff was professional even though the pub was packed. They even moved is to a larger table after noticing that we were struggling to fit... More

Came into the bar for a beer with business contacts on a quiet Monday evening. We received incredibly arrogant service and attitude from the bartender. I have never experienced anything so rude and unprofessional before, so ended up taking our business somewhere else. Extremely disappointing, would not recommend this place.

Forest and Brown is a bar with atmosphere and personality. The have a light brown and classy interior with a warm feeling. They offer a wide range of beer and drinks. The food is amazing to be on a pub. This is the bar we meet friends after work for some beers and food. A place for "young" and local... More
