The Forge Restaurant in Chester

Situated in the heart of this historic Roman town, The Forge Restaurant in Chester is one of Chester’s best restaurants with delicious food and unrivalled service.

With a passion for wild, sustainable British ingredients, and a love of simple cooking over fire and charcoal. The Forge has its kitchen front and centre in the middle of this lovely, and elegant space. Incredible dry aged beef and wild venison will be found in the maturation cabinets, awaiting their turn on the amazing forge grill, to be lovingly grilled and roasted over oak and beech logs.

At the Forge, we focus on British ingredients, as local  to Chester as possible. Our venison, always a hugely popular part of our menus, is harvested from herds on estates where that focus on improving biodiversity and deer health – a process we call Farming the Wild.

Seafood is all British, from hand dived scallops to Menai oysters and line caught Cornish brill. In our restaurants, we truly care about sustainability and care of our land and sea, and our menus reflect this. All farmed produce comes from producers with the highest welfare standards.

Old fashioned service is core to our offering, ensuring a fabulous experience – from knowledgeable staff to the cocktails served table-side from our amazing cocktail trolley.

Hearty, delicious, great value, amazing service, and really memorable, are some of the goals we look for and we hope you share those feelings when you visit this very different restaurant.
