Forge Cafe


The British Ironwork Centre Cafe


Welcome to the Forge Café! Whether you choose to sit underneath our spectacular maple tree or next to one of our huge sculptures, you’ll be given the opportunity to relax and recuperate whilst surrounded by an eclectic mix of art and sculpture work. Filled with fascinating and quirky furniture crafted from a variety of metals and recycled materials, our seating area allows you to sink into comfy leather sofas, vintage effect chairs and even upcycled car seating! If you’ve brought your four-legged friends along or just love to be in the great outdoors, we also have a dedicated outdoor seating area complete with sofas, outdoor heaters and a full view of our vast sculpture park.   

We serve a wide range of artisan coffees and hot chocolates, as well as loose-leaf teas. For those out there with a massive sweet tooth, we feature a large variety of delicious homemade cakes, treats and bakes within our cake cabinet for you to treat yourself to throughout the day. We also have a full ice-cream parlour out on our veranda.

We aim to ethically source all of ingredients from local and regional companies, including our coffee beans and teas. If you have any dietary requirements, please let us know – we will always aim to cater for you wherever possible! 

Four-Legged Friends

Can’t leave your house without your four-legged friends in tow? We don’t blame you! Here at the Ironworks, pets are completely welcome within our outdoor veranda area and are encouraged to explore the entirety of our exterior grounds. For all the very good dogs out there, we even offer a dog trail map and free doggie treats in our reception area!
