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.
Couldn't of asked for better. The food was delicious, the service was top notch, our party of 10 was very well looked after, everything was well organised. I will definitely be returning again soon!
Dirty glasses. Waiter went to get new ones after noticing (we didn't point it out) but never returned so we drank from the glasses anyway. Our normal waitress was very nice and friendly. Food was amazing. Note that to make a fuller meal you will need a couple of side dishes which can all add up at the end!
The best smokehouse restaurant in Ipswich !!!We went here last Saturday evening ,the food itself was just amazing ,the staff were friendly , specially the Spanish girl from Barcelona and the decor is really fantastic .Really enjoyed our first visit to the Forge restaurant .Highly recommend , will be returning for sure.
Lovely food and really good service. We’ll definitely be back!
Had amazing time for friends birthday everything was great.
Lovely place, staff excellent but meals very salty and expensive when you add sides.... BBQ beans were canned (was anticipating home made at that price) Enjoyed but won't return unless on a special event offer perhaps... please reduced the salt - tasty but over powering!
Always a warm welcome when we drink or dine at The Forge. Love the gluten free options. Atmosphere, whilst casual, remains special. Love the cocktail selection and the food is always top notch. Our favourite place to dine.
We loved the decor and vibe of The Forge Kitchen, though unfortunately the food was not to a similar standard. Despite warnings from a friend regarding the quality of food, we decided we wanted to give it a fair chance. We ordered 6 small plates & 3 sides (a nice amount of food for 2). The Halloumi and Ham Hock bites were very dry / hard to swallow, and the BBQ beans turned out to be standard baked beans (no bbq whatsoever)?! My partner and I did both agreed though, that the steak and ribs were delicious and cooked nicely. Based on value for money, I don’t think we will be returning to The Forge Kitchen.
Over hour wait on food, sat at the end so staff werent even walking past to check if we needed anything. A bit more of a description on how the food comes out would be better too. But food is cooked perfectly.
We believe that the music could be a bit more varied.
Great food and service. Highly recommended and in my view the best restaurant in Ipswich.
I had rib eye when it arrived it looked like it had been ripped off the sole of a shoe and cold. Taste was good and my partners meal was top notch the service was excellent and not in your face obtrucive the puddings were fantastic over all the night was good maybe try something different next time.
Good service and friendly team
Everything was perfect and our waiter was extremely patient, helpful and polite, despite some unnecessary challenges from some people in our party!! Thank you.
Food was average and didn't even get to sit at a table!! Had to sit up stairs on a ledge over looking the down stairs
Good value good food
This was my first time at the restaurant and the experience as a whole was brilliant from the waiter we had providing excellent service to the food which was cooked to perfection. Was very happy with everything and will be coming back again.
Lovely food. Great friendly attentive service
We attended the Comedy Evening, food was delicious and the service was extremely good. Thank You, we will be return.
The Forge Kitchen is an awesome venue! The staff are fantastic! The food is awesome and it has the best atmosphere!!
Great food & service, lovely ambiance but priced at the higher end of the scale for this area.
