Sorry do not know why it has taken me so long to review. We have been visiting this restaurant regularly as a treat, for birthdays, anniversaries, taken friends, and well, just a happy shopping trip to Southport. One of the best menus I have seen in many a year, with a vast choice of seafood, fresh, visible in the chiller of the open kitchen. Very generous portion sizes, I usually ask for a "small." The salmon, cod and prawn en croute is delicious, fish and chips, enormous. My personal favourite is the beef (or chicken, or mushroom and cashew nut) Stroganoff, with a full bodied sauce rather than the anaemic ones in other restaurants. Served with rice or chips, and always the best of fresh veg. Rarely have room for desserts, might try a starter and dessert next time. Just look at the menu: http://www.forgebrasserie.co.uk/index.html
It is out of the way, and down a side street, so no brilliant view of the sea, but the quality of the food, friendliness of the staff, and really nice clientelle more than make up for it. My husband particularly recommends the house red wine.
Thank you again for a great lunch. Wish we lived closer, then we could have dinner with you. Perhaps I will book an hotel next time.
