So, if you’re looking for breakfast, lunch or just a coffee and a place to work, Butler’s offers a fresh menu throughout the day.

Butler’s has been named in homage to the Butler family who were involved with the management of the Forge for over six generations from 1779 when they first agreed a lease with the Cardigan Estate, they then went on to purchase the Forge in 1893 and it remained in the Butler family until 1974 when the last member of the Butler family left the board and GKN acquired the Forge.
