The Old Forge

If you haven’t dined at The Old Forge in Darling yet, you are missing out on an experience that will leave each of your senses properly romanced. Owners Nina and Michelle created something stellar when they moved into this space built in 1910. Smooth, deep south blues floats on the breeze that flows through the large barn doors as the sun washes in from the West. A cozy bar is tucked away behind the beautifully detailed, wooden stair case which rises next to the fireplace with its two wing back chairs. The chandelier from a bygone era suspended in the center of this magnificent roof captivates my imagination and I feel like I could be in a 1920’s Opera house, on the Titanic or drinking English tea in India. Speaking of bygone days; The wooden bar top comes from none other than the legendary Rafiki’s in Kloof Street! Man, if that counter could speak…

I’m leaving it here. I’ll say nothing more about the food, because it’s simply something you’ll have to experience first hand. Phone. Book a table. Just go!
