Our menus are born from the heat, flames and stripped back elements found at the forge. Whether you stumble upon us for brunch, lunch, dinner, a proper Sunday roast or a cheeky tipple or two, we’re almost certain we’ll have something to offer your fine taste.
Did you know, as well as savouring our latest concoctions at The Forge, you can also buy our meticulously crafted, bottled cocktails to enjoy at home? You can order them from the Smith’s website for free delivery, add them to your delivery or collection food order via our app, or take some home with you after your next visit to The Forge. We’ve created 4 luscious libations for the initial batch – simply chill, shake, pour and enjoy!Learn More
While Bertram Black Esq. and Prof. Eve Hegarty lurk in the shadows (if you have your wits about you, you may glimpse them), painstakingly exploring, tinkering and finessing to handcraft our tastes and tipples, the day-to-day running of this most intriguing independent dining discovery falls to husband and wife team, Grant and Robyn. Their Forging vision is just a 30-second walk from the historic waterfront and marina in Ipswich, home to a spacious bar area, a 2-storey restaurant and an outdoor roof terrace – all marvellous locations for sampling some exceptionally tasty bites and wondrously peculiar potations.Learn More
