Located near the Ipswich waterfront, The Forge Kitchen smokehouse and bar serve coffee, craft cocktails, brunch, lunch, craft beers, Sunday roast, carefully selected wines, and more. The best flavour is achieved by cooking food the way nature intended, using smoke and fire.
Bertram Black and Eve Hegarty run are responsible for the unique creations you’ll find on the menu. Eve typically travels all over in search of the finest ingredients, while Bertram tends to the fire and the delicious flavours it cooks up.
