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.

Further Information

Brimming with the freshest seafood delicacies in the Southport area, Forge Brasserie in the town centre serves up some pretty decadent fish, 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, for the main event and if you’re looking for luxury, the lobster at market price comes highly recommended, especially when paired with a crisp white wine from their carefully curated wine list.

This Southport space is certainly known in the area for being fish specialists, but they also serve up succulent steaks, a duo of lamb with all the trimmings and chicken saltimbocca stuffed with mozzarella and sage, if seafood isn’t quite your thing. Forge Brasserie is cosy and rustic, complementing their extensive menu perfectly, and is open six days per week for lunch and dinner, giving you plenty of opportunities to satisfy your seafood cravings. You’ll find Forge Brasserie along Queen Anne Street right in the centre of town, be sure to book though, as this catch does tend to fill up quickly.

Warm and professional greeting. Extensive menu including many interesting fish dishes. All the dishes we had were excellently cooked and well presented. Decent wine list and the Sancerre was particularly good. A very enjoyable evening.

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.

We visited Forge Brasserie on thursday evening and I had a wonderful monk fish with Parma ham while my wife had a trio of fish and a very nice Chardonnay with the meal . The surprise was that we got 30% off all fish meals as Thursday nights offer.

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.
