Welcome to Forge

Since November 2012, we’ve been baking for the people of Sheffield and beyond.


COVID-19 UPDATE

Our cafe remains closed for now, but we are serving drinks, sandwiches and other savouries, bread and pastry for takeout, you can even order a ‘finish at home’ brunch to enjoy a little piece of our cafe at home. We are open 10am and 3pm, Tuesday to Saturday, but please order online if you would like something specific.

GROUP DELIVERY

Group deliveries are mutiple orders delivered to a single address – it’s neighbourhoods working together! Each household places and pays for their order separately, and each order is packed into a separate, labelled bag. In the basket view below, each household inputs a ‘coupon’ which allows free delivery to a single address on a specific day of the week. There is no minimum value for single orders, but the total of all orders delivered to the single address must be £30 or more. You can download a handy information sheet to distribute to anyone you think may be interested in this scheme.

Your Group will need to be registered before individuals can place an order, so you will need to identify a Group Coordinator. If you already have a Group registered with us, you will receive an email with instructions for our new system.

It is essential that every household not only input the correct coupon, but select the correct date on the calendar. Orders placed on the incorrect date or without the coupon will not be delivered, they must instead be collected from the bakery.


Our bakers, chefs and baristas make everything from scratch – meaning we know exactly what’s in it. No improvers, no additives.

From small bakery, to bigger premises, to opening a cafe – our story has been one of growth. As demand has risen, so have we, filling our shelves everyday with exceptional bread and pastry, all made in house.

We like to make things slowly, for flavours and textures to develop in our bread that only time allows.

Our café serves a breakfast and lunch menu inspired by the seasons. Our coffee is roasted by pioneering northern roasters North Star Coffee and served with the utmost attention to quality.

Freshly baked bread is a universal pleasure that we love to share. Our bread classes will teach you how to bring the bakery into your kitchen, learning to bake different breads and pasteries with our founder Martha.

We take our time, working with good ingredients. This is local, made for you, by us.

Keep an eye out for our Pizza nights, Seasonal Supper clubs, and more!

We do our best to minimise waste. Yesterday’s bread is perfect for toasting and is half-price, anything we can’t sell goes to pigs across the city, including at both Heeley City Farm and Whirlowhall – we never throw any of it away.
