Local favourite The Old Fire Station hides three floors of relaxed modern dining and drinking behind its imposing red-brick Victorian exterior in central Brentford. Serving the best fresh, and home-made Persian cuisine, the restaurant has a convivial buzz, with brown leather sofas, a fish tank and a mixology cocktail bar. We cater to vegetarians also.

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.

My husband and I recently held a joint 40th birthday party at the Old Fire Station bar - it was amazing!!! Lots of of thanks to Faro and his team for making the evening flow so smoothly. Nothing was too much effort, they even accommodated our 1970's themed music for the evening!!! I would highly recommend the Old Fire Station... More

Nice restaurant with very good starters. We found the main dishes a bit dry as we prefer gravy based dishes rather than just marinaded. Very helpful staff with our children. We were the only diners in on Friday early evening but was quite nice.

Dear neelypeely, Thank you very much for your feedback. Persian mains come in 2 main forms: grilled (marinated) & stews (lots of sauce). The grilled dishes may be accompanied by a side of yoghurt & a dash of lemon, but traditionally they're served without any form of gravy. Our stews, on the other hand, have lots of sauce and pack...

The downside with this restaurant is that you have to go through a very noisy bar to access it. We walked around the building looking for the entrance but discovered you have to go into a crowded bar and up a spiral staircase strung with fairy lights! The night we went there was also a very loud party in the... More

Lovely food, reasonably priced and great service. We were in the area to watch the six Nations rugby, just stumbled across the restaurant and we're freaky glad we did. Recommended!
