The large restaurant area is popular with families, groups and couples seven days a week and the feature bar, stocked with real ales, beers, wines and spirits is a great place to meet with friends. The covered outdoor area and expansive garden offers plenty of space for kids and the grown-ups to enjoy the summer months. The Forge offers a large and airy function room for parties, conferences and music performances. Call or visit us to discuss your event and catering requirements. Open 7 days a week - 12:00 - 23:00 Food served: Mon - Thur: 12:00 - 14:30 / 17:00 - 20:30 Fri - Sat: 12:00 - 21:00 Sun: 12:00 - 20:30
