Squaremeal Review of Forge ?

Lively, informal and loud, this new venture from the Late Night London Group is a busy magpie mix of decorative inspirations – a sophisticated and ‘now’ offer aimed at young suits rather than the boss. Here’s to dining, dancing and drinking, with 20 house cocktails regularly selected from master list of 200 – perhaps a Glenfiddich and Poire William Old Fashioned or a Tanqueray 10 and absinthe sour (over-lemony and insipid to our taste). We also found the OTT portions of imaginatively presented food rather patchy: BBQ pulled pork was average street food, although honey- and soy-marinated salmon with a zingy, crunchy wholefood salad had a certain appeal. In the high-spec basement club/bar, you can order reasonably priced wines and world beers such as Einstök and Goose Island; otherwise splash out on vintage fizz at the VIP table (minimum spend £500).

Forge Ahead

I do like Forge - very welcoming staff, not a huge menu but tasty dishes, decent wine list and good service. You can have a lot or a little and generally there's always somewhere they can cram you in even if busy. Unlike some places, the loos aren't a bus ride away and are clean. Buzzy when busy, chat from the serving staff when less so.What more can you want or expect in the City?

Forge - a new beginning!

by   bronze reviewer (13)

Jan 2015

We settled in with cocktails, talked through the list by Giles (Restaurant Manager), who also gave us a historical background on the creation of the negroni. Clearly lots of thought has gone into the list which focuses on classics with a twist. In the bar and nightclub area in the basement, they had got a local artist to create the art in the VIP area wall backdrop as well as the textured wall in the private hire lounge. I enjoy my favourite drink - a negroni - whilst I made my menu selection....
