CAFÉ • LOUNGE • BAKERY

Forks café is a superb venue set in the heart of Bradford’s Indie Quarter. First and foremost, we provide gorgeous food and superb service, offering a fabulous menu of freshly prepared hot meals, sandwiches and snacks as well as a stunning deli with an exceptional range of fresh, locally sourced produce.

We are also a social enterprise, providing aspirational work experience and training through our Academy. Our goal is to offer a future to people who want a hand up, not a hand out, by ensuring that we give them the best quality skills and experience to find sustainable employment in the future.

 

At Forks, we believe in offering more than just outstanding food and service. We want to create an inspirational space where people meet, socialise and experience the satisfaction of giving hope and opportunity to trainees working to achieve self sufficiency.

 

Forks is owned by the Bridge Project, Bradford’s leading charity providing support to individuals, families and children suffering from the consequences of drug or alcohol dependence. And what’s more... all our profits go directly back into the community to fund this ongoing support and to help many more people make a positive choice when they reach a difficult fork in the road.

Forks proudly stocks Suki Tea, a Belfast-based Boutique Loose Leaf Tea Blender. The Suki Team ethically sources and blends their big, fat, juicy loose leaf teas, herbal infusions and fruit blends from all over the world. Winners of over 27 Great Taste Awards and multiple industry awards, Suki Tea truly is ‘Tea as it should be’.

Forks is a purveyor of Dark Woods Coffee, a small speciality roaster born on the weather beaten moors on the outskirts of Huddersfield. They roast and experiment with the finest beans in a beautifully renovated mill (rather idyllically nestled on the edge of the moors) in a vintage 1950’s gas-fired German Probat UG22 roaster, which has been painstakingly refurbished. The team have judged international Barista competitions, trained and consulted for some of the worlds largest coffee brands and worked with charities and ethical companies.
