beer in jugs 

Several years ago we launched a campaign to ‘Bring Back Jugs’ by offering people a taste of good time yesteryear by serving our locally produced cask ales in traditional dimpled glassware, this campaign saw us rise to fame on BBC1's 'Midlands Today' evening news & lead to The Forge's first ever inclusion in the ‘Good Beer Guide’.  


We have two fantastic outside spaces here at The Forge both of which are perfect for enjoying the beautiful British summertime, one of which has been designed especially for alfresco dining, with its own non smoking area.

Coffee & Cake

Our beautiful Cafe Cereza coffee is sourced from Rainforest Alliance certified producers in Latin America before being carefully roasted by our expert partners back here in the UK. We are proud to have several trained baristas on within The Forge team. We also offer a daily selection of beautiful homemade sweet muffins straight from the bar.
