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.

Couldn’t have asked for a better last brunch. Waiting staff were absolutely wonderful and so accommodating (we had a 6month old with us)

Service was excellent, many health and safety precautions were taken and the food (a Sunday roast) was one of the best roasts I have ever had - absolutely delicious!

Since reopening after lockdown we have visited regularly and have to say that the measures to keep customers safe are the best we have come across. We love the food, atmosphere and service and look forward to returning after the second lockdown.

Really enjoyed the food was very good. Drinks were very nice too. Only thing i didn't like was the fact we only had an hour and a half to make a decision order and eat and we were constantly pressured by staff. I understand very well we are in a pandemic but I felt this took away from the enjoyment of it all a bit. Its very off putting knowing you only have a small window to sit down and enjoy yourself. When I visited the week prior me and my friends only had drinks and we were not pressured. I think in future I'll be visiting only for drinks and not food. Just my thoughts but overall very happy thank you

This was an exceptional place to have breakfast. Great location, interior, helpful staff, fantastic food at great value. The only disappointment was I specifically went to get the green smoothie, but wasn't available, but everything else easily made up for the loss. I would highly recommend to anyone that would like a substantial breakfast to 'set them up for the day'.

Have eaten here several times and the food and service has always been great. You don’t feel like the staff are hovering over you but they are always available to get you something if required. One of the best places to have a meal out in Ipswich.
