Loved the Forge, super staff and great food. Highly recommend it. We were there when there was only outdoor dining available and the outside space was really lovely.

From the minute we walked in the door it was just fabulous. The decor is just out of this world, the attention to detail is outstanding and that was before we even got the menu. The food main course for 2 adults and 2 children...everyone had different options. The nicest meals we have eaten for a very long time. The pulled pork burger came in a black bun which was a bit fun to look at as I’d never seen this before but everything was perfect. The staff were brilliant, each one as nice as the next. The price of the food was such good value. I would definitely go out of my way to eat here again, the whole place was just fabulous. Get a lovely feeling the minute you walk through the door. The outside eating area was just as fabulous and funky as inside. Loved every minute here.More

The Forge is spacious, airy gastro pub with a nice atmosphere. We had a starter, main course and desert, none of these courses would be out of place in any Michelin restaurant. The starter of prawn tempura was exquisite, the monk fish dish was brilliantly...flavoursome and it was topped of with beautifully presented deserts and great coffee. We'll be back.More

We had a fantastic meal at The Forge after spending the afternoon at Wildlands. The lamb and fish were delicious. Clean, pleasant staff and not too busy.
