The Forge

The Forge Restaurant in Chester

Situated in the heart of the historic Roman town of Chester is the Forge.

The Forge is a the latest in a group of extraordinary restaurant and dining experiences by restaurateur and chef Mike Robinson.

Continuing Mike’s passion for wild, sustainable British ingredients, and his love of simple cooking over fire and charcoal, The Forge has its kitchen front and centre in the middle of the lovely, elegant space. Incredible dry aged beef and wild venison will be found in the maturation cabinets, awaiting their turn on the amazing forge grill, there to be lovingly grilled and roasted over oak and beech logs.

Head chef Curtis Tonge, a Chester native and passionate chef, heads up the young, vibrant team in the kitchen, combining amazing, wild, sustainable ingredients from land and sea into sumptuous creations that form really memorable eating experiences.


We understand how important breakfast is for a great start to any day. That is why we offer a variety of locally sourced fresh produce and a buffet with the complete Continental experience and all classic a-la-carte options cooked freshly by our skilled breakfast chefs to order.

We will also offer a selection of room service breakfast options to allow you to indulge in the ultimate breakfast in bed.
