Rustic Pizza's slice of the action


The Rustic Pizza Co. visited Forge Island this week to see how the build is progressing and to see the windows going in on their new restaurant. It's looking great so far!

Click here to see the video of the recent Topping Out ceremony, celebrating the completion of the cinema and hotel structures.

Building work is on track at Forge Island in Rotherham as the flagship development enters the final months of construction ahead of opening to the public towards the end of summer 2024.
