About Forge Brasserie
Southport’s town centre has a number of fine eateries to choose from, but if you’re looking for a catch-all restaurant look no further than Forge Brasserie, tucked down Queen Anne Street, just off Eastbank and not far from the central station. Special lunch, early evening, and Monday surf and turf menus bracket a comprehensive a la carte menu and wine list of a highly international character. Forge Brasserie is perhaps best known for its fresh seafood, with mussels, scallops, breaded whitebait, and oak smoked salmon cornets filled with Norwegian prawns being highlights – and that’s just for starters. Choose cod, haddock, sea bass or lemon sole and your choice of sauces – white wine, Mornay, bonne femme, San Remo or Provencal. If you’re looking for luxury the lobster at market price comes highly recommended.

Forge Brasserie is a hidden gem, off the beaten track. Succulent steaks, fabulous "specials" and delicious desserts. Meat Night on a Tuesday offers 20% off the prices of the steaks. There is a similar "Fish Night" on Thursdays. Knowledgeable, attentive staff and attractive surroundings make the Forge a pleasant venue for a quiet meal for two or a larger party.
The forge is excellent every time I have been the food and service are spot on. Definitely one of my favourite restaurants Always an enjoyable experience
Lucky to get a table for two, had a welcoming greeting. Good menu and nice table with a great atmosphere. Excellant food with very good, attentive service. Can't wait to go again.
Flawless service; treated like royalty, wide vegetarian menu as well as great selection of meat and fish, delicious food, lovely nautical feel. Will definitely return.
The food was lovely could not fault it whatsoever, also the waiting staff could not have been more helpful. However I think it was the owner we spoke to one arrival and he had no idea what I was talking about when I said I had a reservation that I had booked on line, so they did not have a record of it. Luckily there was not a problem getting a table as it was an early booking. The person we spoke to on arrival at the Forge needs some training on customer service as his attitude was condescending to say the least.
Quaint little restaurant also tables upstairs, staff are lovely, nice easy going atmosphere. I ordered chicken skewers for starters they was very tasty but hardly anything there , husband got the fish cakes they was a substantial portion. Mains was lamb shank and chicken supreme both were OK next time I would try the steak , also I thought the sides was a little over priced £2.50 each for tiny portion so the bill quickly adds up. I finished with a brandy Alexandra cocktail but was disappointed not really a cocktail no nice glass ect . Having said all that I would recommend ,nice restaurant, nice staff tasty food .
My wife and I still enjoy visiting the Forge Brasserie when we are staying in Southport, which we have for a number of years now. Although the fish choices have been reduced quite a lot from what used to be on the menu.
La Forge Brasserie is a cozy restaurant in Southport . Plough man's proportion, fish and beef variety with many choices on the menu. Service could have been better and more attentive . Food is good . Moderately priced. Innovative Special Events Charlotte , North Carolina USA
Delicious food, welcoming and attentive staff and a sensibly priced comprehensive wine list. Excellent menu catering for all tastes, and no pressure to choose anything you don't want or need. If you like a pudding wine I can recommend the red one - with the Brioche Bread and Butter Pudding.
Didn't know what to expect but on arrival was pleasantly surprised.There was plenty of choice on the menu I had the t-bone steak which was great and my wife had the lamb shank which she thoroughly enjoyed.Good service from friendly staff I would not hesitate in recommending the forge!!
Very little to say. The food and service was excellent. The Evening went as planed right from the first mouthful. My only criticism was it can get a little crowded and there's not much room between tables, but overall a thoroughly enjoyable evening, one that we will be repeating.
This restaurant is always good. We've been going there for over 6 years now and have never had a bad time. The food is amazing and the service is excellent. It has a great atmosphere and is a lovely place to go for a meal for any occasion.
The best hidden gem in Southport. The food is prepared fresh by the wonderful chefs and served by attentive, smiling staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. Good wine, good food all at a reasonable price and great atmosphere what more could anyone ask for
lovely atmosphere. had the tdh menu 13.95 for 2 courses which was excellent. recommend the tri colour of fish which consisted of 3 small fillets of hake, salmon and monkfish. also my partners chicken chausser was tasty. not been for ages forgot how nice it was . have 2 make it a weekly thing
Very nice evening Ambience, menu, service, & the meal itself all first class. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Forge Brasserie & will go again Dr Russ Green
Our first visit to the Forge Brasserie. Friendly and attentive service, pleasant ambience, and very nice food and drink. Early Valentine's Day meal for two.
Fantastic seafood and fish at a reasonable price for the quality. Only problem was that two out of four main courses came with the wrong sauce. However, the restaurant gave us a free liqueur at the end of the meal to make up for their error.
Absolute, top class, from entering, to the table service the meal was an absolute delight as always. I had mussels, co pot pie, followed by cheesecake and all were adorable. So here's to many more visits
Great food. Great hosts. Would definitely return and recommend. Stayed in Southport for seven nights and went to a different restaurant every night. Shame we went on our last night because we would have re-visited.
We were first time visitors, having only read about the venue on Trip Advisor. However we were certainly not disappointed. Excellent food and great service and we would highly recommend. We look forward to returning
Lovely place, very relaxed rustic interior. Staff very welcoming and helpful. Good choice on the menu, everything we had was delicious. Clam chowder highly recommended for starter. Good selection of alcohol-free beer and cider.
Best restaurant in Southport 10 out of 10 for presentation quality and quantity of food staff very attentive nothing too much trouble will be back next time we visit Southport and would highly recommend.
As usual we had an excellent meal. The food is of a very high standard and the staff are very professional. We had the lunchtime meal and it is very good value for money.
Really enjoyed our meal, very helpful waiter, lovely food, lots of choice, really nice decor inside restaurant, was empty when we got there at 5.30pm but got busy really fast! Thank goodness for Quandoo!
A very pleasant meal in very ambient surroundings. We both had a lovely steak meal. We would both highly recommend this establishment. But if you don't know the area well use a walking sat nav, but well worth the search.
Food was great , 4 different menu choices all very good, staff were really friendly and we felt it was good value . Would definitely go back and in fact have rebooked already
My friend and I had gammon from the lunchtime menu, it was delicious! I have never had a bad meal here, the staff are excellent too, very professional. i will be returning soon!
Good steak just cooked to perfection medium rare could not fault it at all. Venue is very clean nice layout and the staff very helpful. Service with a smile whole deal spot on.
Super food and good service. My lamb shank was the best I have had for a long time. Large menu with ample choices and the ambiance helped to make the evening special.
I don't want any recognition or points for acknowledging what was a wonderful dining experience and pleasurable experience, thank you, you made us feel welcome and unhurried for a special dining experience.
Great food and service and the staff are always very nice and nothing's to much trouble Plenty of choice and you won't be disappointed always have a good offer on at lunchtimes

Enjoyable evening with excellent food and pleasant staff . Would highly recommend the Forge as one of Southports best restaurants with a good choice of seafood and steaks on the menu.
The seafood platter for 2 was amazing, really friendly staff and great service.. one of the best seafood restaurants we have been to for a long time, looking forward to returning.
Best value and quality in Southport, service and hospitality second to none. Been dining here regularly for ten years, consistently excellent. Best in town in my and my family's opinion.
A good restaurant with a varied menu and a great atmosphere. Would thoroughly recommend trying this restaurant if you are in Southport. Will certainly use it on our next trip.
Good atmosphere, great food well served. Well worth a visit! We took advantage of the 'early doors' menu which was exceptional value for money. Try it, you won't be disappointed.
Foods is good at the values, nice and friendly staffs, service good. I have good time there. I agree booking a table advise. Location not far away from railway station.
Excellent food and very good service. We had the seafood daily special which was outstanding (IoM scallops and Hake) - would recommend this restaurant to anyone staying in Southport
Absolutely brilliant. Great service, great food. We have been going here for over 20 years and never had a bad experience. The best and most consistent restaurant in southport.
Food was fabulous as was the service, unfortunately I had to miss my Mum's birthday party last night because of the dreaded lurgie, so I must book again soon.
food and service exellent nice ambience La Forge was well situated and reminded me of a lovely continental hotel that I stayed in near Granada southern Spain.Pleasant experience.
Lovely food came really fast and big portions considering it was a la carte. I had mussels as a main and partner had a steak. Will be returning
Has long been a favourite restaurant in Soithport and over the past 20+ years has never failed to impress - even sourcing snails for my younger son. Excellent.
Super food, service, and surroundings. Very impressed. We had Whitebait and Scallops to start, with Fillet Steak and Monk fish for main courses. All perfectly cooked and served.
As usual, the food was excellent as was the service, always a pleasure to eat at The Forge in Southport, the best in town by a mile!
Lovely lunch and great service,as usual the forge delivered a great meal well cooked and presented and all three of us were very happy with our choices.
