About The Forge Kitchen
A menu born from the heat, flames and stripped back elements found in the forge... We work day and night to shape our plates. Food cooked as nature intended. No fuss, no frills, over smoke and fire (with just a little Forge-made seasoning). We plate everything from our Smoker, Furnace & Hanger unaccompanied, so without the garnishes and extra ‘bits’. Simple stuff. Choose exactly what makes it to your plate - Forge it your way.
At the bar, a selection of seasonal and smoked cocktails, craft beers and hand-picked wines.
First time visitor - great venue. Food a d drinks spot on. Sunday roast was excellent but there was a charred flavour on every item, bar the roast beef. Beef was perfectly cooked, and tasty
Nice tapas for starters. Steak as main cooked perfectly and my friends fish platter looked very appetising. It was a Wednesday and the place quite empty, so can not say a lot about the atmosphere.
Regular visitors to The Forge - that speaks for itself. My husband and I love it and it’s our first choice for a Saturday night out. Thank you.
I haven't been to the forge in the past year, having previously been relatively regularly since you opened. I was dissapointed with the range of meats and sides you now offer now as this seems to have reduced substantially. I didn't fancy chips nor plain potatoes however that was the only carb on the sides menu as pearl barley was out. You used to have a lovely rice on the sides menu. Really dissapointed. I don't think I'll ever be back.
Fantastic evening with delicious food and great service. I recommend to friends and family all the time.
Love the Forge fab service, food was amazing as always. My only complaint is the chairs in the bar and resturant are so uncomfortable.
Great food, tasty drinks, and friendly staff with beautiful decor
The wait for drinks & food was ridiculous - waited 30 mins+ for our mains & second round of drinks. Starters were nice but still had a wait on them, considered leaving after starters as service was so slow. Waitress removed second lot of drinks as apology which was nice however as first visit wouldn’t return due to underwhelming experience. A busy Friday night but still wouldn’t expect to wait so long for food & especially drinks!
Amazing service and quality of food. Great menu as well as ambiance. Will definitely return
Best burger my fiancé has ever had. Great service, lovely smelling and clean toilets. Just a little chilly
Lovely food and great service!
We loved the food . And the staff were friendly and were so incredibly helpful if I am in Ipswich any time soon I will be back thanks again for a great food
Great service. Atmosphere was great. Food was exceptional. I lovelynplacebto ho for a celebration dinner. Thought the food was a tad more expensive than we would normally pay.. but worth every penny. We will be back.. highly recommend.
I came here for my graduation as a celebration. Our waiter was brilliant, friendly and efficient. The food was delicious and lovely as always. The cost of the food was pricey, although they do offer set menus at certain times of the week and on some days. Overall, it is a brilliant experience and we will be back for other occasions.
Great helpful friendly and fun staff, food was good the steaks could be better I had a rib eye and it was good but not excellent, the wine was very good.
excellent food and service. very friendly staff who couldn't be more helpful. great cocktails too!
Very nice restaurant. Convenient. Shame there is no parking at the restaurant. Food is great. Friendly atmosphere
We visited as a table of 7people. Despite being a larger table and the forge was quite busy, service was on point and food and drinks were served in good time. We all very much enjoyed the food and drinks and are sure to return.
Food absolutely spot on, service great, but very busy on a Saturday night, and having a vaulted ceiling the acoustics are fairly loud
The food was amazing, the cocktails were great and the staff were super attentive and helpful. I thoroughly recommend and will definitely come back.
Food was great, venue is great too and the staff were brilliant.
Lovely staff very friendly. I’ve been here twice now and my only feedback is that they’ve taken my plates away before I’ve decided I’ve finished
Sides smaller than anticipated (waiter told us beforehand that they would be big enough to share). Disappointed that gf peppercorn couldn’t be provided. Apart from this, very good - lovely steak and chips, excellent service. Would return.
We personally did not like the smokey burned taste that I guess is inherent of the smokehouse way if cooking meat. I had a flat iron steak. By the time I added two sides it cost the same as a fillet at miller & carter and there is absolutely no comparison. Miller & Carters steaks are 20 times nicer. That, said, the service was very good and we did enjoy the cocktails and starters. But a smokehouse taste is just not for me. Glad we tried it out though
