I hate to write this negative review because I like the look of this place and my first visit here during the Birmingham Jazz Week was quite pleasant. However, my visit on 22nd December was not at all pleasant. On entering the pub at 22:20 with my wife and son (we had taken him there specifically to show him what... More

This restaurant looks very nice and elegant, but we were served the wrong food (after a 25 minute wait for what turned out to be 3 sandwiches and 1 burger) and the manager (or owner?) just delivered a very weak apology saying that "obviously" the waitress had got it wrong and he would change our food to give us what...

We turned up for lunch with no previous booking. There are lots of different eating areas, and the food was very good. Service was not particularly quick at first but got better.

I really like The Drop Forge and this review is not about the venue or the floor staff because they're great. This is about the food the chef sent down yesterday. We both had Roast beef at lunch and it arrived soon after. The beef was OK but the mash was really lumpy and I didn't bother eating mine. My... More

This was our second family celebration at The Drop Forge and I can heartily recommend it. The restaurant has a good atmosphere and is lively but not too loud. The service was excellent from the moment we first arrived and as we were a large party we were given a separate area. The food was first class and my steak... More

The above dish, served with Kale and followed by white chocolate cheesecake was perfect. There - I've said it now! Great food, service and relaxed atmosphere. I'll be going to The Marwood in Worcester, which is their sister site and hope it's as good. Cheers!
