I had a party for friends and family here on a Sunday afternoon. We had the upstairs space for a few hours with pizza and large tapas dishes served. The food was fantastic and commented on by everyone. It was no trouble for the kitchen to look after a friend who is vegan too. The staff were great in helping... More

We're regular visitors to The Firehouse and we love it! Normally 5* reviews, but on this occasion we felt that the desserts let it down slightly. All except one of the desserts was ginger... a bit more variation would have been nice! The ginger panna cotta was tasty, but not quite a panna cotta. The baileys creme brûlée was tasty,... More

Hi guys, Thanks for the review. Glad all the main menu was perfect for you. Apologies that the desserts wern't quite up to usual standards. As you probably noticed we have launched a new menu & the desserts are currently on a rotation system to try out various options. We must have unluckily ended up wth most of them containing... More

The tapas is excellent, I'd recommend the shared menu. Brilliant. They also have a wide range of local beers and the staff are exceptional.

After a couple of lovely meals at the Firehouse i thought it was about time i left an appropriate review. The staff are great and always make us feel welcome and fuss over the kids but the real reason we return is the outstanding food. The tapas is tremendous and the pizzas delicious...

Spent a lovely afternoon here with family and friends - we were looked after so well by the staff and wanted for nothing. The last time we came here I "discovered" tapas (excellent by the way) but this time we ate pizzas. Great choices, superbly done, all in all an excellent time was had by all.

Went once with my partner and the food was good and service was nice. Came here a second time with my in-laws and received terrible service and mediocre food. We were told the pizzas would take longer than usual, about 20-25 minutes, because a large order of pizzas had gone in before ours. No problem. 40 minutes later they offered... More
