Great British steak off This place is absolutely brilliant. We didn't have a booking as we aren't local but we chanced it. (Do book to ensure) The atmosphere is nice and chilled, table was immaculate. Reasonably priced too . My steak was presented really well and the ability to slice and finish off your self is great. My partner is vegetarian and the options did look limited, she had the pie which was very enjoyable and filling too. Well worth booking and eating here.

Delicious food...great environment Whilst visiting Derby, we wanted to grab some lunch but didn't want the normal boil in the bag put food. We walked into an old style courtyard and found The Forge. Unsure of what it was and what was on the menu, we went to the door to see if one was in the window. We were greeted by a friendly young man who invited us in and gave us a menu to look at without obligation (a welcoming change).....We decided that the menu looked good and were shown to a booth for two people. We were given menus and our drinks order taken (again the young man was extremly polite and well informed on what ales were available). We decided to order the chicken, ham and leek pie and the cajun chicken. Our food was delivered to our table and the waitress informed us how to use the hot rock. We were also given another plate so that we could remove the meat before it became overcooked (great idea!!). The food was delicious - we couldn't fault anything. We will definitely return with our family.
