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.
Friendly helpful waitress
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
Very enjoyable meal, good menu.
Lamb rump outstanding....I'm already planning on coming back just for that. See you soon.
Went for birthday meal, absolutely lovely. The bar had a great atmosphere and service while waiting for our table and the meal was great! Would highly recommend for special evening out.
Lovey place loved it
Love The Forge Never disappoints See you all soon 😚😚😊
Good food, nice atmosphere and friendly staff
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.
Good food, beautiful setting! We had a lovely time and will definitely be coming back
Excellent service, would definitely go again.
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!
Been several times All ways great
Very busy Saturday evening, food excellent and service was as good as always
Really tasty food, efficient and polite service and the cocktails are great!!!
Love what they have done with the place, real laid back London feel... Everything was great and will definitely return soon as weather I’m being good or bad the menu suits!!
Very well looked after during a birthday lunch with family. Fab cocktails, delicious food and great, friendly, efficient service. Can’t wait to come back.
We loved the food and setting it took us ages to leave... Will definitely be returning x
Fantastic food and great cocktails. Excellent service and cheeky staff all made for a great evening. Thank you
Great food, friendly staff. Thanks for the birthday drink!
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.
Great comedy evening, perfect burger and great comedy. Will definitively come again
