The Forge

Visited The Forge for the first time since its rebranding from L'Estaminet a few weeks ago. Three of us called in on spec at Saturday lunch time and found an oasis of calm from the hurly burly of the area. A warm welcome from staff added to the initial well being. We all made different choices from the keenly priced set menus. Not sure if these are lunch time only? Two of us had Thai green curry which was perhaps a surprising offering for a modern European restaurant, but the flavouring and ingredients were top notch. The wine waiter was slightly stumped when asked for a wine recommendation to accompany Thai green curry, as well he might be, as it was a birthday we settled on champagne which cheered him considerably. We shall be going again.
