Forge & Co is a kind of cafe-come-bar-come-workspace-come-coffee shop, yet it somehows makes itself work as all of those, on the far side we could see a row of people working away at their MacBooks, it was quite early evening but there were a few people beginning to eat in between and then over where we were was lots of comfy (very designer looking) sofas where we received waiter-service drinks. They had a selection of loose leaf teas, 'proper' coffees, superfood smoothies and various other soft drinks alongside free cucumber water! My smoothie was incredible and full of goodness, the price was good considering the type of place, the waiter service and its fancy ingredients! I also need to give the sinks in the ladies toilets a special mention!

Cool Shoreditch place with plenty of space for a relaxed brunch with friends. We were lucky enough to get a spot on the couches by the window on a lovely sunny day and it was truly perfect. Nice bloody mary, great ox tail burger. Our waitress was a bit abrupt and even though I had a confirmation e-mail they said they didn't have my reservation, but overall it was a lovely experience. Music was great and the atmosphere is fantastic!

Came in for a great meal. Loved the ox heart burger and my friend had a perfectly cooked rib eye. Chocolate fondant was perfect. Fantastic atmosphere. Very light and a terrific place to catch up with friends,

Came for an exhibition in the gallery at midday and then went upstairs to the Restaurant and had one of the specials for lunch. Poached salmon salad with walnuts. A real summer treat. Cocktails looked tempting too, but it was too early in the day. Definitely will be back.

Went for a coffee, but stayed working with my laptop all day having smoothies and food. In the evening I indulged into a great burger and wicked chips. Service was great and enjoyed the musical vibes.
