The Forge Restaurant & Bar

Brand-new and awarded a Michelin recommendation within just three weeks of opening - The Forge is definitely worth a visit!

The Forge is the latest in a group of extraordinary restaurant and dining experiences by restaurateur and chef Mike Robinson. Continuing Mike’s passion for wild, sustainable British ingredients, and his love of simple cooking over fire and charcoal, The Forge has its kitchen front and centre in the middle of the lovely, elegant space. Incredible dry-aged beef and wild venison will be found in the maturation cabinets, awaiting their turn on the amazing forge grill, there to be lovingly grilled and roasted over oak and beech logs.

Head chef Mike Peters, a Chester native and passionate chef heads up the young, vibrant team in the kitchen, combining amazing, wild, sustainable ingredients from land and sea into sumptuous creations that form really memorable eating experiences.

At the Forge they focus on British ingredients, from as close to Chester as possible. Their venison, always a hugely popular part of the menus, is actually harvested from herds on estates that Mike manages to improve biodiversity and deer health – a process they call Farming the Wild.

Seafood is all British, from hand-dived scallops to Menai oysters and line-caught Cornish brill. Mike and his team truly care about sustainability and care of the land and sea, and their menus reflect this. All farmed produce comes from producers with the highest welfare standards.

Their stunning Sunday Roasts are now accompanied by the super-talented Sarah J Music once a month (sometimes twice a month – please check dates). Book your table now for Sunday lunch and listen to her relaxing acoustic vocals while enjoying the most fabulous food and service. Roasts from 12.30pm, music from 1pm.

Old fashioned service is core to their offering, with Restaurant manager Mari Ford ensuring a fabulous experience – from knowledgeable staff to the cocktails served tableside from an amazing cocktail trolley.
