It was a pleasure to visit The Forge on our trip. A wide variety of talented craftspeople and artists are represented. The value for money is also very good and the staff very helpful. Thank you

Went to the cafe yesterday with my family. Lovely halloumi salad, soup and vanilla milkshake. We asked for more bread with the soup and they were happy to oblige. Nice craft shop to browse in while you wait.
