Newest Review: ... out with large oak tables and lots of tiling, it looks fine in a gastropub kind of way, but it is cold and the atmosphere is matched by the service (See later!). Menu: I found the place interesting in the fact it wants to show it has locally sourced products and a real flair for food combinations. For starters there were things such as Duck and Beetroot Pate with marmalade and a ... more

As you might well have guessed this restaurant/pub is based in an old fire station in waterloo, my experience is from over four months ago so things may well have changed for the better, but overall I didn't find this was one of my better London Culinary experiences. Location: Located on Waterloo Road, this place is in a perfect location for anyone working near or travelling through Waterloo. It is within 50 metres of the rail and tube stations and is easy to find. Property Decoration: Obviously being an old Fire Station this venue can feel cold as it has huge high ceilings being an Edwardian Fire Station. The place is decked ... Read the complete review

If you like a noisy, crowded bar where it takes ages to get served, then a visit to the Fire Station is a must for you. Personally I prefer a pub that looks like a pub, rather than an old fire station. I find the decor cold and unappealing, and the beer expensive. Having visited the place twice (the first time I was not impressed, but decided to give it another chance) I will not be bothering again. I think the place is a gimmick, and the prices reflect this. ... Read the complete review

The Fire Station was one of the pioneers of the gastro-pub boom in London and really took off under the leadership of Dan Evans, who's now cooking at the fabulous Angelsea Arms in Wingate Road, W6. Sadly now the quality of the food has gone downhill while the prices seem to have gone up. The bar itself is high-ceilinged which helps keep it airy on hot nights, but makes for deafening conversation - don't bother trying to hold a conversation in the restaurant unless you're intimate enough with the other person to talk directly into their ear. (actually, this may not be as bad a first date place as i first thought...). Beer is good and reasonable ... Read the complete review

This place is located on Waterloo Road, next to Waterloo Station and is named after the fact that it used to be a fire station! On entering the place, this comes as no surprise, the high ceilings and open plan nature gives the place quite a cold feeling. It is often very busy, especially on friday evening, mainly with local business people. A good selection of beers, all pricey, are available. However, the Fire Station's saving grace is its restaurant, which is very good. Be sure to book in advance as it is very popular. Again, the food is not cheap (mains average about £10), but it is a good place to go if there is a large group of you. ... Read the complete review
