Went for Sunday lunch, food was good. A nice roast and a good choice of other meals. However, the service was not great, generally not very attentive. We were told there was not a drinks menu when we sat down, only to find a drinks menu on the bar when we went to see what they had. Also had gravy... More

Hello viewers , popped in for lunch as first timers after spending a few hours jewellery shopping . We actually walked past it twice as from the outside looking in through the windows it looked a bit "pubby" . Took a chance and went in , pleasantly surprised at the lovely interior and a lovely welcome from a member of... More

The Drop Forge is in a great area of Birmingham with a thriving bar scene, so all it needs to do is serve good/simple food in trendy surroundings, but the food just doesn't quite cut it. The decor is modern with nice brickwork and good solid wood furnishings, there is also a lot of light from the glass roof which... More

My fiancé and I travelled to the jewellery quarter in the hunt for wedding rings, but first we needed food and a drink and as we don't know the area we just went to the first place that 'looked nice'. We weren't disappointed, we were greeted by a very friendly & helpful man at the bar, who let my fiancé... More

Came here with trepidation after reading some the reviews. Generally quite pleased, attentive service and decent food. Has potential to be a nice restaurant but needs a spruce up - cushions look old which takes away some of the appeal. Also a touch on the pricey side - the whole place needs a bit of work before they can charge... More

The location is good, the interior styling is good and the menu looks great - but that is all that's good about this place. And it's a shame because the only thing that let's it down is a lack of effort. We had to move tables because the 1st place we sat smelt. The second place we sat at had... More

Discovered The Drop Forge while looking for a potential wedding reception venue. Visited and was meet by a friendly young bar man. He gave us some info and allowed us to look around. Really liked the tapas food and decor (apart from the worn out cushion covers but as I work in Interior design, figured I could easily change these... More

Ate here on a Friday evening and was one of only a few tables. Walked in and had to get the attention of the staff who were in a huddle behind the bar. We were seated and given menus, and then the waitress walked away. When we finally ordered food and drinks, it was almost like we were being hurried... More

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
