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.

Excellent. Food and service were first class. All four of us enjoyed starters, main dishes and coffee. We will return for more of the same.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

It was just as good as on previous visits made all the better value for money with their 30% off selected fish main courses on Thursday nights.
