We went for our annual get together to this venue for food and drinks. The cocktails up until 8pm were 2-4-1 which was good, the porn star martini wasn't that good, but the pina colada was lovely. At about 8:15pm we got taken to our table upstairs and there wasn't anyone else in the seating area. There was a few... More

We visited the Old Fire Station for the first time recently having lived in Brentford for three years. The restaurant always looked pretty quiet from the outside which I think put us off but we were pleasantly surprised! The building is interesting and unique. Downstairs, there is a bar and we were directed upstairs to the restaurant soon after we... More

We hadn't had Persian cuisine before and were not disappointed. The upstairs restaurant is well presented in this old firestation building. The staff were very helpful and the food arrived promptly. There was a goods selection of starters and I had a few of these veggie options instead of a main. Most of the main dishes are based around lamb... More

Great food, first rate personal service. We had a wonderful wedding anniversary party here. The venue has everything for young and old. Places for kids to explore safely, quiet spots for those looking for time out and lots of space for everyone to gather about. The staff made everyone feel at home and friends and family spoke as warmly about... More

We went to the old fire station for the first time this week. It won't be the last. The food was delicious. The service very friendly if a little slow but it was worth the wait. The food turned up beautifully seasoned & tasted very fresh. Looking forward to returning.
