    Our first visit to the black forge and it definitely won’t be our last! My boyfriend is still talking about how good the fillet steak on the stone was! Will definitely be back, delicious food and super friendly staff! Also.. the forged stout was so good!

    Food was lovely ,and good value for money. High tables where too small to eat off especially if you were getting steak on the stone. Table at door entry not ideal or comfortable to eat at .Doorway very busy ,with too much traffic to be eating your meal comfortably. High table rocking had to be fixed with a beer mat . Ordered Irish coffee , coffee was freezing and drinks where too long in ariving to the table after been ordered.
