Met a colleague for an impromptu business meeting and having not been here for years decided to give it a go. Really pleased that we did as the food was good, service good and the choice of beer excellent. Only gripe is that after 5pm it got far too noisy to talk. Will be back and won't leave it so... More

This funky place is just a stone's throw from Waterloo station and features a hip vibe as well as great food and drinks. We had a fabulous meal for four here after a long day of sightseeing in London. Our waiter was fabulous, and the food hit the spot - from hearty burgers to unusual pizzas and an amazing salad...

Came here with a few work colleagues for lunch, the meal was good but a few of the dishes were misleading, a salad was meant to have smoked mozzarella but it wasn't even mozzarella let alone smoked, the maple bacon was just normal streaky bacon. Everyone did enjoy their meals though, so I would consider coming back again.

Grace the waitress was really friendly & nothing was too much trouble. My Mum & I had the chicken wings, they were the best I have ever eaten. I also had sweet potato fries which were nice too.

Stopped here near Waterloo on walk to IWM, staff were friendly and layout was lovely, nice to see they have kept some character from the fire house itself. Cocktail I had was yummy and good choice of burgers. NIce food and nice surroundings would visit again if in area.

Great food, loved the deep fried pickles. The pizzas are great. A lot of the original features are still intact so makes it an interesting place to eat. The children's menu is good value too.

I met with a group of friends here before seeing a show at The Vaults. The front part, which is the pub, is incredibly crowded, not surprising for such a prime location. They still had a few tables in the restaurant in the back though. So, this place used to be a fire station, as the name suggests, and it's... More

What a great breakfast! Sourdough bread, 2 fried eggs, crisp bacon and half an avocado. Tremendous. Served with a hot cup of tea. All for £19 for the 2 of us. Plus pleasant and efficient service. Highly recommended.
