Last Sunday of 2012, we came early and were by new younger staff.We had to ask for the usually delicious bread and had along wait for our starters. Duck pate was meagre, but soup was delicious. Main meals were excellent and variety of vegetables was very good and tasty. Irene herself made sure we were happy and we lingered over coffee as the restaurant filled up. We had brought an overseas relative for his first visit there and he enjoyed the food and banter. Thanj you Irene and girls.

We have been to the Forge on a few occasions, with family, friends or just the two of us. Every visit has been memorable and it seems to get better and better each time.
It has a lovely welcoming atmosphere both internally and externally.
Everything about the Forge is treated with care and an eye to detail, as well as the building, furniture and fittings this also applies to the food.

My current favourite starter is the potato skins filled with smoked cheese and smoked bacon, it is just mouth watering. The aroma of it on the neighbouring table as you wait to be served is just divine. There is always a wide variety for the main course; the only problem does be trying to select which one to go for, personally I love the steaks, perfectly cooked, with rich sauces and fabulous sides. When it arrives it is always beautifully presented.

Now the deserts here are a real treat, it would be impossible to try and describe them and do them justice. A good tip is to ask Irene what her current favourite is and go with that you wouldn’t be disappointed.

Pauric and Irene have built up a very good business here over the last number of years and I think the fact that you nearly always have to book well in advance speaks volumes for the high esteem that this restaurant is held in with many many people.

Located just 5 minutes from the last round about on M3 / N3 it is very easy to get to and an experience everyone should try.

Where to start, the Forge is a lovely restaurant and from your first visit you will fall in love, the welcome is warm and inviting, the food is devine. You will feel cared for but not fussed over, your needs will be anticipated and you will feel special.

The date below is not when I attended this restaurant. I have been a number of times. Between 2002 & 2009.

Eventually we made it to The Forge and as the slogan goes it was well"worth waiting for". It was simply outstanding on all fronts. The warmth, ambience, hospitality, service and especially the food were wonderful. If we were judges aka Strictly Come Dancing it would have been four 10's all round. Paraic, Irene and crew you have something really special. GK
