About The Forge Kitchen

Born from the heat, flames and stripped back elements found in the Blacksmith’s forge, our concept is simple - Food cooked as nature intended, no fuss, over smoke and fire with just a pinch of salt and pepper, or go full Forge with something a whole lot more indulgent...
It’s your choice - Forge it your way.
At the bar, a selection of seasonal and smoked cocktails, craft beers and hand-picked wines.

It's time to re-think the steakhouse.

Literally in love with The Forge. Service is always good and we are remembered, always a nice touch. Food is fabulous and you’re gluten free selection is fantastic... could do with a bit more dessert option. Best Pink Pornstar Martinis ever.

Fab venue! Little bit loud and our table was on a main walk way by the waiters till area which was a bit of a pain but the food is brilliant - a little pricy but worth it! Every mouthful of food was delicious! Service is about the best you can get - the staffs passion (especially the manager ) for their menu and dishes etc is wonderful and they have it down to a tea to when checking you are happy but without bothering u! Brilliant night - will come back

Food was good, if maybe a tad overpriced by the time you've added a side of fries or chips. Atmosphere was ok but rather noisy, but nothing you can do about that when it's busy. Service was excellent, so all in all very good.

Booked at late notice as we were let down by another reservation. Really great food and despite being a very busy Saturday night they gave a personable, attentive service. Just the kind of place Ipswich needs. We will be back!

This was my second visit. First visit I was very impressed- this time I bought my sister for her birthday treat. I have to say I was a little disappointed with the meet and greet. When we arrived we stood at the bar/restaurant entrance for over 5 minutes before anyone acknowledged us, even then they didn’t come over. Considering there were no other customers it was surprising and made us feel unwelcome. Our waitress on the other hand was lovely and the food was delicious. Overall we had a nice time.
