My favourite guy had just arrived back from Dublin and we decided to have dinner at The Forge ... How can we not have heard of this fab restaurant we asked each other ... But now that we have, just try and keep us away. From the moment we entered the bar area where a young but extremely personable young... More

Was just passing and decided to try our luck to see if there were any available tables. Luckily there was, and we even were offered a large table in a quiet corner of the bar area, which allowed us to relax with our infant knowing we weren't disturbing diners in the restaurant area. Staff were friendly and accommodating, and the... More

Went here for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Food was good I had the roast of the day. Desert was delicious. Reasonably priced. Maybe it was just this particular day but seemed lacking in atmosphere and the decor is a little shabby. Nice patio area outside. Nice helpful staff, good service. Would try again

The food was excellent ! Presentation was wonderful. All of my family had a variety of cuisine and we were very pleased with each of our choices. Excellent service also. Best restaurant we have eaten in Ireland so far!

Passing through Fermoy we decided to have lunch. After consulting TripAdvisor we found our way to The Forge. It was just what the doctor ordered. Welcoming staff, good array of dishes deliciously prepared, all at a reasonable price. What more could a traveller want ? Without informed advice it would be too easy to make a bad choice.

We went to the Forge last night for dinner and it was one of the best meals I have ever had. To start I had Guinness sausages which were beautifully presented with Apple sauce and salad. It was gorgous. John had the warm chicken salad which was also lovely. For a main course I had the most fantastic pasta with... More

Nice service, great food. A little slow, but worth waiting for. Would definitely recommend it. Nice outside setting area also. Worth visiting.

Went there based on other reviews, and wasn't disappointed. Started off in the main bar and had a couple with the locals. Both they and the guy behind the bar were exceptionally friendly and welcoming. I'd suggest there is a great place to start. From there I moved to the restaurant where I had the duck and pork belly. Very... More

Great restaurant in a town that doesn't have many decent places to eat! Not on the main street so it would be great to let tourists know that it is there.
