Stumbling upon this restaurant, myself and the rest of my party were pleasantly surprised at the atmosphere inside The Drop Forge. It's a really classy little place, well lit in the main restaurant with some cosy cubby holes round the back. However, other than the decor, the experience here was terrible. We tried to order our food and were simply... More

What a fab find, we happened across this restaurant while wandering around the jewellery quarter in Birmingham and we were well impressed to say the least. It was mother's day so we didn't expect to get anywhere to eat without booking but the welcome was warm and the service excellent. Built in an old forge, the building had been tastefully... More

It was a very quiet lunchtime. The food was very enjoyable. The waitress wasn't very attentive. With so few patrons she could have looked after us a lot better. Overall though a nice lunch in pleasant surroundings.

We booked a steak dinner for a party of 25ish people on a friday night, we booked in advanced and had to submit our meals in advance BUT All the meals came out within 5mins of each other AND they used our names to correspond to meals so people weren't going 'Oh what did I order again' ALSO, the 25...

This was our third visit to this delightful restaurant. The staff are always welcoming, the menu for lunch (we haven't yet been for dinner) is varied and the food is served promptly and well presented. They sometimes have guest beers on and today is was Saddleback by Purity - my husband raved over this drink! We were the second table... More

I like the inside decor and general ambience, lots of light and and old industrial feel given a modern twist. The waitress service was good but the food slow to arrive even with the restaurant only being half full. The meal was good but not excellent, with small issues, lack of seasoning in all the meals, some elements of the... More

We dropped in this place for a spot of lunch while shopping for an engagement ring and was really surprised at what a great find it was. Not busy but was very modern with very friendly staff and the food was just fab!

Went for lunch here while shopping for wedding rings in the Jewellery Quarter. Loved the rustic/wooden feel to it and the service was excellent. Had a chicken burger which was delicious. Really really nice. Just misses out on 5 stars for me as slightly too pricey for what essentially is pub food. Certainly choose here over other pubs in the... More

We booked this table for both my dad and sisters birthday. I'd heard good reviews and thought we'd try it. I'm so very glad we did too. The staff were extremely accommodating and friendly. The food was cooked to perfection but maybe lacked a little taste. I had the seafood special of which was wonderfully cooked. The selection of tapas... More

I went last night for a family birthday meal. There was a good customer service from start to finish, everyone was very friendly. The food was superb, except I think the tapas needed more flavour as I thought some were a little plain. Except for this the food and service was great. I would definitely visit again in the future.
