Great coffee — quick lunch

Forde’s is your local, independent coffee and Sandwich Bar in West Bridgford. Join us for a delicious coffee or a quick tasty lunch!


Whether you enjoy a flat white or a herbal tea we have something for you. We serve 200 Degrees coffee, freshly roasted locally and our herbal teas are from a range by Birchall Tea. As well as enjoying a cup with us, you can buy bags of coffee beans, ground coffee and tea bags to take home with you.


If you fancy a quick lunch, treat yourself to our range of hand filled panini, baguettes, salads, jacket potatoes and filled croissants. Our range of delicious cakes are locally made and always include vegan and gluten free options. Lunch is available as eat in or take-away; ask about our take away lunch meal deals.

Special diets

If you are vegan, veggie or gluten free we have options for you. Choose from our range of dairy free milks and vegan cakes, or try one of our sandwich fillings on gluten free bread.

About us

We like to keep it local! Forde’s is locally owned and fully independent. We love our local community - in fact our name comes from the old name for West Bridgford and the logo is inspired by Trent Bridge.

We serve locally roasted coffee by 200Degrees, Beeston Brownie Company brownies, and Clemie’s Vegan Cakes. We use local suppliers and buy local produce as much as possible. The environment is important to us, and we use recyclable take-out coffee cups, sandwich bags and salad boxes. Our entire soft drinks range is plastic free!

Pop in and say hello to Sarah, Ashleigh and the team. You will be sure of a warm welcome and before long we’ll know your name and your order :-)
