COVID-19 UPDATE

Our cafe is closed until further notice as per government guidance. We are now serving drinks to take out, so you can get your caffeine fix again! A small quantity of bread and pastry is available for passing customers between 11am and 3pm, Tuesday to Saturday, but please order online if you would like something specific. 

WEBSHOP

We sell bread, pastry, jams and chutneys, cookies, granola, ingredients and other pantry staples through our webshop here.

You are welcome to place an order of any size for collection between 11am-3pm, Tuesday to Saturday. Please select a collection date from our calendar on the billing page. We require a minimum of 3 days notice for all orders.

Our deliveries are contactless. We will call you before delivery, knock and leave your order on your doorstep. If no-one comes to the door we will call again, but must leave the order. We are unable to re-deliver.

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.

Take me to Group Registration!

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.


Serving up all day breakfast and brunch, monthly late nights and supper clubs. Fully licensed with a wine, beer and cocktail menu, we are psyched to finally have a larger cafe space in which to kick back, flex our creative muscles and entertain.

Our ethos is one with the bakery. Food made slowly and from scratch, from the ketchup and mayo on your plate, to the jam and bread for your toast. We’ve expanded the menu that folks came to love in our original little bakery cafe and switch it up with the seasons. We’ve got egg brunches as far as the eye can see, and lots of vegan options too.

Upcoming events can be found here.

Our 32 seat space is available for table bookings and walk ins 7 days a week, and as a hire space for corporate or private events in the evenings.

For large bookings and private hire, get in touch at bookings@forgebakehouse.co.uk

If you would like to book a table on the same day as your planned visit, please call us on 0114 250 7881, we aren’t able to take same day bookings online.
