The story so far…

FORGED WITH PASSION

The Forge Kitchen is a local, independent bar, smokehouse and restaurant just a mere meander away from Ipswich’s vibrant waterfront area and stunning marina. A former electricity sub-station, The Forge still houses many of its original industrial features, making it the perfect setting for our enchanting Steampunk-inspired surroundings. Just be careful which door you peek behind – where there’s smoke, fire and steam, there’s likely to be something unexpected afoot…

A most hospitable environment

ALWAYS A WARM WELCOME

If it’s a relaxed, informal, unfussy, and dare we say, unique dining experience you’re looking for, step right this way, friend! Our forging home, simply bursting with character, is yours too the moment you step through the door, and we’ll always relish the opportunity to serve you up a stellar spread, with a smile.

Feel free to don your finest if it’s a special occasion, or if casual attire is more your fit, do go right ahead, we won’t judge.

What's cookin'

SIMPLY GREAT TASTE

We love the idea of plates kept simple. Food cooked as nature intended. No fuss, no frills – over smoke and fire with a little Forge-made seasoning to bring things to life. Our charcoal Kopa-smoked meat, fish and veg, tapas-style small bites, 28-day dry-aged steaks and sharing cuts, home-forged pizzas and burgers and our weird and wonderful home-infused spirits and smokin’ craft cocktails await.

A truly unique experience

WHAT TO EXPECT

After a pretty dismal couple of years for all of us, we’ve made it our mission to bring a little delight into the lives of our guests. When you step foot inside The Forge, allow yourself to experience a sense of wonder, mystery, theatre and endless possibilities – one might even say, magic. Our cocktails certainly won’t be found anywhere else. Perhaps one of our seasonal events could be your first dive into our world…
