What a lovely stop off; resting our feet... enjoying a break. What a nice location, including a roof area; beautiful and airy, sitting in the shaded area at the bench tables. We so enjoyed the light lunch of flat-breads and a generous portion of french-fries. Good value for money and really tasty.

Have visited several times with visiting colleagues and always had pleasant food and service. Menu offers a good range of meat and vegetarian dishes that are reasonably priced - grilled chicken accompanying a mound of gnocchi was moist and especially tasty. Will be returning.

Decent food, strange beers, nice premises but one of many Jewellery Quarter locations. There are much better places although I understand Sunday lunch at this location is excellent.

The bar is a must visit place for 'non-locals'. It offers something a little different and is in a very unique setting. Prices for beverages are a tadd on the high side. This place is good for a quiet drink on 'date-night' or as part of a bar crawl with friends.

Well worth a visit, good value and friendly staff. The food was quick to arrive and was as good to taste as it looked. Prices were very reasonable

A transformed Victorian building with superb atmosphere, exceptionally great staff, hospitable and very friendly, would recommend a visit.

Popped in for some lunch and a pint , we had the flat breads which were nicely presented and very tasty . I have to say they were a little over priced . The place is decorated well and was quite busy . There was a garden terrace but we didn't go up to it .

We have just had an amazing evening at the Drop Forge celebrating our friends wedding. Perfect venue for this. The staff worked so hard, well done all. Drinks were flowing and the food was very nice, all cooked amazingly well. The decor and interior gave this a place a unique feel and perfect ambience. The tables and layout worked just... More

This was our third visit and was disappointing . Its a lovely venue but let down today by poor service and I didn't think the food was as good as normal. We opted for the Roasts. The beef one was nice, but my husband had the pork one and I had the Lamb and we both found the meat very... More
