Southport’s town centre has a number of fine eateries to choose from, but if you’re looking for a catch-all restaurant look no further than Forge Brasserie, tucked down Queen Anne Street, just off Eastbank and not far from the central station. Special lunch, early evening, and Monday surf and turf menus bracket a comprehensive a la carte menu and wine list of a highly international character. Forge Brasserie is perhaps best known for its fresh seafood, with mussels, scallops, breaded whitebait, and oak smoked salmon cornets filled with Norwegian prawns being highlights – and that’s just for starters. Choose cod, haddock, sea bass or lemon sole and your choice of sauces – white wine, Mornay, bonne femme, San Remo or Provencal. If you’re looking for luxury the lobster at market price comes highly recommended.

This Southport space is certainly known in the area for being fish specialists, but they also serve up succulent steaks, a duo of lamb with all the trimmings and chicken saltimbocca stuffed with mozzarella and sage, if seafood isn’t quite your thing. Forge Brasserie is cosy and rustic, complementing their extensive menu perfectly, and is open six days per week for lunch and dinner, giving you plenty of opportunities to satisfy your seafood cravings. You’ll find Forge Brasserie along Queen Anne Street right in the centre of town, be sure to book though, as this catch does tend to fill up quickly.
I haven't been to the Forge for an awful long time,not deliberately,I hasten to add.We were thinking of somewhere different to go for my daughters 16th birthday.!So I booked a table for Saturday evening,it was brilliant !The menu was extensive,and we could have eaten every dish!My husband opted for the Lambs liver dish which he thoroughly enjoyed,my Mother-in-law&I both went for fish dishes,lemon sole&sea bass respectively,delicious.My daughter plumped for the gammon steak,it was fit for a King! The staff were really friendly&pleasant,we are definitely going back before Christmas! Hats off to all those who work at The Forge.
A great night where the food,drink,service and atmosphere were superb not rushed but the stall were very attentive to ensure if you needed anything it was sorted. A very professional operation made to feel very welcome and a fair price for what was some very tasty food .
Party of 6 and all our meals were just perfect. An Extensive menu choice including very reasonably priced 2 or 3 course specials of the day. The service was good as always.
