Events

Pizza, Pies, & Pints. Can you think of anything better? We’re colluding with our neighbours, Turners Bottle Shop, to bring you craft beer and hand crafted food.

Come and join us after hours. Turners will the be running the bar from their shop, with seating inside and out for you to enjoy your food, beer, or both. Order your food with us and we’ll bring it over. Fancy eh?

How It All Works

Whether it’s pizza or pie night, we’ll be serving everything boxed up and ready to take away. However, don’t let this stop you pulling up a chair in our café or a bench over in Turners.

We run a pre-order system for the first hour of our pizza nights, so from 17:00-18:00 it’s pre-order collection time. Once we have released the menu (usually a week before the night) you can stop by the bakery or call to pre-order. Please note payment is required in full at the time you order. We’ll have your order ready for collection during a specific time slot, which we’ll give to you when you order. Then the only decision you’ll need to make on the night is what to have for pudding! We will only be able to take walk in order during this time if the pre-order slots haven’t sold out.

If you’d prefer to walk in and order, it’s best to come after 18:00. Waiting times are around 15-20 minutes, just enough time to grab yourself a beer!

Upcoming Events at theForge Bakehouse

Maybe you’re a complete novice or perhaps you’ve tried your hand at a bit of bread making with erm….mixed results?

This course will take you through the baking process, exploring the importance of each ingredient and your baking environment and how they affect your dough.

Firstly – ignore the dates on this course. This giftcard can be used at any time, any year!

Maybe you’d like to treat someone to bread class but aren’t sure which course they’d like to do?

Buy an open giftcard, then the lucky someone can get in touch with us directly and choose a course. There is no expiry date on these giftcards, they can be posted to any address, or emailed if you’d prefer.

Sourdough is what we do best. Using wild yeasts and bacteria, we’ll spend the day leavening our bread the old fashioned way. People have been baking this way for thousands of years. You don’t need to have any previous baking knowledge to delve into the wonderful world of sourdough.

Learn how to create your own starter and keep it alive at home. We’ll explore how different flours affect the flavour of your starter and in turn the final loaf.

This course covers a real variety of dough, from super enriched to traditional country bread. We’ll explore how these different breads develop their unique flavours and textures and the part each ingredient plays.

How to choose which French breads to make? We want them all. For this 7 hour course we’ve narrowed it down to baguettes, brioche and pain de campagne. Tres bon!
