Set at the heart of the delightful downland village of Slindon, The Forge is a community run shop and café (with a visitor information point as well).
The building itself it worth a look – many of the original features of the old village Forge have been retained, including the old blacksmiths hearth and a collection of old photos.
The shop is a cross between a convenience store, deli and farm shop. We offer a wide range of goods including everyday essentials with an emphasis on local goods. We also have a number of unique-to-us items, plus maps and local guide books.
The cafe serves our own blend of coffee, fab cakes, light lunches and a selection of savouries, including our own legendary sausage rolls. The current menu is on our website and also note we are fully licensed and have free & fast wifi too. You can sit inside, or out in the garden when the weather is good. Take-away available.
We are dog-, walker- and cyclist-friendly and there are fabulous walks through National Trust woodland and onto The South Downs from our front door (we have 4 circular walks downloadable from our website or in the shop).
