The Forge Restaurant and enjoy beautifully prepared food in a relaxing environment

Welcome to the Forge Restaurant set in the heart of the countryside just off the N3 on the Meath/Cavan border.

The Forge has proven to be a haven for those wishing to enjoy good food in a cosy atmosphere with excellent service.

The Forge Restaurant, owned by Raymond McArdle, is a haven in which to enjoy good food in a cosy and friendly atmosphere, with excellent service. The building retains the charm and character of its original 18th-century use as a blacksmith’s forge – which would itself have been a venue for local people to meet and chat.

Ray’s philosophy of ‘freshness and flexibility’ – using local produce and catering imaginatively to their customers’ tastes – has seen their business go from strength to strength since it opened in 2000. The restaurant and its outreach activities are an integral part of the community.
