This bar/pub has a fire department theme, complete with a real fire engine inside that's kitted out as a bar, and you can climb a flight of steps and sit at a few tables that are actually placed in the hose bed of the engine. Staff have cute tee shirts that say, "Pump Operator" for the barman, "Dispatcher" and "Rookie" for the servers, who wear short shorts with red suspenders. That's the end of the highlights. Unfortunately, the food was the lowlight. We tried fish & chips (oil wasn't hot enough, fish was gummy, fries were over seasoned) and brisket (uninteresting). The NY Cheesecake was pretty good and the coffee was good. But we won't return for the food, that's for sure.

Excellent service and excellent food. You can't go wrong with the smoked wings! It is very family friendly and the atmosphere is nice.

Visited with a large group of 22. The staff was very friendly and handled our group very well. The food was tasty and came out in a timely manner.

Would return

Food was ok. Atmosphere is your typical bar but the design is different in that it is a fireman theme. Ok for a once in a while visit.
