Friendly staff and good quality grub. The chips are pretty chunky and the batter is very nice. I tried their fish cakes which were a lot nicer than the standard ones you normally get.

Took my lady to 'The Forge' for a birthday pre theatre treat. I went on the back of the 3 courses for £25 offer. The menu didn't disappoint! A wide selection of yummy treats.....and some free drinks too, which always goes down well.
The food was excellent, We had the pumpkin and the tempura for starters....the tempura was very light and crispy and the fish inside tasted fresh, the pumpkin dish was a little heavy but also delightful. For the mains we went for the duck and tuna. The duck as literally half a duck on a slab of mash...which the lady was never going to finish but had a good stab at it. It tasted like Christmas on a plate, rich with depth and lovely fragrance of oranges. The tuna was a little bland in comparison, but a descent chunk of fish cooked to perfection. Its probably a better summer dish have a autumn one. Desserts we had cheesecake and crème caramel. The cheesecake took the edge in this round as it was light and was supported by a delicate scoop of fruity sorbet, which tingled in the mouth.
the bill came to around £70in service after we a couple of glass of roses. The service was always to attention and we were out after 1hr 15min to stroll down the road to the Royal opera house. The only downside of our evening was the location of our table...a bit to close to another table.....apart from that the atmosphere was nice, I felt quite grown up in such surrounding's.
