Fantastic last minute response to a horde of hungry cyclists rejected by the Lion pub despite having agreed 1hr before arrival to serve food - some sort of internal conflict! Service and general hospitality at the Forge first class

Fed 23 hungry cyclists unannounced, cheerful, polite and great food, after The Lion over the road found it too difficult despite being given an hour’s notice. Thank you 👍

When the Golden Lion on Allendale couldn’t serve 23 cyclists with coke and food - after agreeing to - the Forge stepped in and up! Allendale and the cyclists salute you. Simple, straightforward, courteous, friendly. Brilliant. Suggest the Forge take over the Golden Lion. 👍

As I was traveling through Allendale to see family, the beautiful coffee I had on my last visit drew me in. I was not disappointed. I was told by a staff member it was a local brand, pumphreys. I decided this time I'd sample there...More

The Forge itself is a great place for arty stuff, it's just the Cafe which lets everybody else down there. We hadn't eaten here for a while but found on that visit the food was even worse than before. The Bacon in the Rolls were...More
