Allendale Forge Studios is a unique attraction where visitors can meet local artists, shop, enjoy delicious home-cooked food and explore the surrounding area.  The gallery hosts monthly exhibitions, the shop is full of high quality handmade gifts from northern makers, and artists' work is displayed throughout the building. 


Due to unforeseen staffing issues, the Forge Cafe will close at 3pm every Tuesday and Thursday until further notice.    The Forge Shop and Gallery will remain open until 5pm as normal.
