We are currently still carrying out building work upstairs at Forte Kitchen, the lockdown unfortunately meant a couple of delays. We are also still waiting on some specialist materials. Therefore, Forte Kitchen will not be able to open until the New Year. The good news is that we really think it’ll be worth the wait! We are incredibly excited about the plans and while you wait, why not follow our journey on instagram, facebook or twitter as we update you on our exciting new offerings… you don’t want to miss this!

Cooking up rustic British food, our kitchen is at the heart of everything we do. Simple food is prepared and cooked with love and passion, creating exciting, flavoursome food without any fuss or frills. We want people to enjoy our food as much as we enjoy cooking it.

Below are some sample dishes and prices. Please note to keep things fresh and interesting these are liable to change.
