We wanted an outdoor kitchen that was beautiful.
We wanted an outdoor kitchen that brought people together around food and flames.
We wanted a kitchen that could be cleaned with a hose, and didn’t worry about the weather.
And we wanted a kitchen that could fit into any space, whether it was a small roof terrace in London, or a large country estate.
We made the Grillo Forge.
It's hose down
Simple design makes for low maintenance.
Durable materials and heavy, sturdy construction make the Grillo Forge completely weatherproof.
Iroko is a very durable hardwood with similar properties to teak, and is often used in outdoor applications for its longevity and attractive silvering with age. Porcelain is a exceptionally strong stain, heat and fade-resistant stone tile. Cleanup after a party is as simple as hosing down your Grillo area and worksurfaces, and putting the supplied covers on any barbecues.
Example layouts & pricing
The Forge is configurable, and can be adapted to fit, or fill, almost any space.
Beauty through simplicity
Simple by design
We wanted to create an outdoor kitchen that was beautiful enough to grace an English country garden, yet simple enough not to require a custom furniture maker to create it. We came up with the Forge.
Its clean, natural lines complement any property, from a central London roof terrace to a rural Grade II-listed barn conversion.
We're based just south of Cambridge. Our components are manufacuted in the UK. Assembly is done on location.
There is, of course, a long tradition of fire cooking in London. In this cosmopolitan city, cooks have certainly slaved over mangals, tandoors and ocakbasi grills for hundreds of years. Recently, however, cooking on real fire seems to have gone screamingly upmarket.

Details & install
We install the Grillo Forge, assembling the components on site.
The Grillo Forge is freestanding - its considerable weight ensures it is secure. A flat surface is required for install. Some rougher surfaces, such as York stone, may not be appropriate. Contact us for further details.
The Grillo Forge is configurable to a wide range of layouts. Some suggested layouts can be seen on the in the layouts section above. As a guide, the shortest layout (a section of worktop either side of a gas grill, no planters) is approximately 2.8m long. Contact us with your requirements and we’d be happy to advise.
The design's done. Let us configure it to your space.
