As you come in baked goods and fresh seafood being prepared two story lots of tables and space. Lots of appetizers fresh vegetables and vegetarian dishes we shared roasted nut. Whoa so good. Also had Great Sea bass, Monk fish, Brim with wonderful savory preparations. Great service as well. We tipped really big was so lovely.

While the location isn't so handy for those staying near the sea front it is well worth searching out if you are fond of fish or steaks. There is a wide range of fish dishes including daily specials depending on the catch of the day. On Tuesdays (steak) and Thursdays (fish) there is 30% off selected main course dishes -... More

So disappointed in this place as I used to cook here when I started out 20 years ago. It used to be a busy well worked kitchen with no microwaves in site. Our food was poor! Over cooked and bland mussels to start. An undercooked mixed grill with a bleeding lamb chop! The wife had cold soup and a hot... More

After working away pretty solidly for several years I recently acquired some time off. Returning to the Forge having not been for about four years wasn't on my list of things to do but it was my partner who suggested we go to Southport to avoid the Grand National crowds in Liverpool and the traffic. It made sense and we... More

Visited Saturday, very little choice on menu, settled for fish and chips at £13.95, fish was tasteless, probable straight out of freezer, cheapest wine was £15. Some people are easily pleased, will not be eating there again .

Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your visit, the price for the fish and chips reflects that we only use fresh locally sourced haddock, we hand peel and chip all our potatoes, with homemade mushy peas. Nothing out of the freezer. Our Ala Carte menu consists of 20 main courses, plus at least 6 on our specials, so I'm confused... More

Large group of us attended as a pre wedding meet up. We were accommodated upstairs and served promptly and efficiently. The food was very good and the staff very helpful. Food quality was excellent and this is an efficient and very pleasant place.
