About The Forge

The ‘Old Smithy’ in Washington Village, is a 400 year old grade II listed building. The building has had a colourful past, formerly; a blacksmith’s forge, stables and even a pottery, it is famed locally for its connection to the capture of the highwayman Robert Hazlit who was arrested and subsequently hanged after being spotted having his horse shod here by the local blacksmith. Things are slightly different these days…

Now ‘the Forge’, the building has undergone a full restoration and has been transformed into an eclectic, vibrant eatery, serving the highest quality wholesome fresh food this side of the river. Accompanied by an extensive wine selection, locally distilled gins, real ales and great cocktails, the Forge is an excellent destination for those seeking fantastic quality food and drink, prepared by experienced talented chefs in an historic yet cosy setting.
