BROMSGROVE'S The Forest on Birmingham Road will be closing as a Harvester restaurant.

The pub will close on July 7 and aims to re-open as an Ego, best known for its Mediterranean food in August, but says it will continue to do Sunday roasts.

The new 'Mediterranean inspired' pub and restaurant is promising a mixture of the best cuisine from across the Mediterranean including French, Spanish, Italian, Greek and Moroccan classics.

A spokesman said: "Our a la carte menu offers plenty of fish and seafood options, delicious steaks, pizza, pasta and paella as well as a large choice of vegetarian dishes to choose from.

"We also have dedicated vegan and gluten free menus, a Sunday roast menu and two kids’ menus for the children to choose from, so we’re confident they’ll be something for everyone to enjoy."

The newly revamped pub will also serve wine, cocktails and cask ales.
