    Dover Forge has been exceptional from the start!

    We were invited to Dover Forge for a tasting when we inquired about using them for our wedding. They went above and beyond to accommodate us and we were treated like royalty. So much to taste - the chef came out and went through everything with us - we left knowing that Alan and his team would be the caterers to help make our day perfect! Definitely a great find for us!

    The crew from the Dover Forge is nothing short of exceptional. The food that Chef Adam prepared and catered during our wedding was truly outstanding. From the first day we reached out to the Dover Forge, all the way up to our wedding day, Alan (general manager) gave us confidence as he thought of every detail, and had a solution that fit our needs and vision. We were invited for a food tasting several months before our wedding to make sure the food was to our liking (and it was superb!) Every small detail was planned and executed professionally. We cannot thank Alan and his staff enough for their fun, friendly, and charismatic attitude during our wedding. Alan and the Dover Forge crew truly helped to make the wedding of our dreams come true. We highly recommend! Thank you!

    I don’t think we could say enough about our experience at the Dover Forge. Alan was amazing—he helped us to create a perfect wedding party. We were arranging from across the country so we really needed a location that could handle things without a lot of oversite, and the did! So many of our guests went out of their way to say how much they enjoyed the food (the ribs!!!) and location. The Forge is a beautiful place for an event—between the tent, outdoor area and indoor space, our guests could spread out and enjoy. The fire pit and outdoor games were enjoyed by kids and adults alike. It’s location can’t be beat as there are plenty of nice, reasonable places close by for people to stay. We would highly recommend the Dover Forge for a wedding event and are so glad we chose it.
