Food and ambience

Location and contact

Tucked away on Southport's Queen Anne Street, the Forge Brasserie has built a reputation as one of the best steak and seafood restaurants in the northwest. The stylish interior extends over two floors with an open-plan kitchen where you can watch the chefs in action. Smart, efficient service and some good-value special deals. Open for lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday with room for private parties of up to 16 people
