We found the restaurant on trip advisor and were not disappointed. We went for my birthday meal and all enjoyed. They have an excellent choice of drinks especially as a cider drinker and the bar downstairs was lovely. We are in the restaurant my parents had the tapas and loved it and my partner and I had the Cajun chicken... More

Food was lovely but was let down by poor service. We had 6 tapas dishes which came one at a time every 15 min. Spoiled our evening as we planned to go to the cinema. Staff did apologise and offer free drinks however i wouldn't recomend tapas from here!

Love it here! Friendly staff, great food, lovely atmosphere. We had the burger deal this time and the burgers were HUGE!! And very tasty!! Loved the drinks - not tried mango or elderflower cider before so it was good to try something different. Both members of staff who were on were fab, especially the lady, who made a special effort...

I've visited a couple of times in the last few weeks and enjoyed both visits. The pizzas are large and crispy and really very good. The beer is tasty too. I've sensed some mild panic when it comes to setting up tables/getting orders out at the same time, due to short staff, but otherwise the food has been fantastic and... More

Food was cold and came at very different times and service was average. Need to focus more on the preparation of the food and less on just walking around

Great place come, great deal which is 2 for £10 on pizzas before 6.30 every evening. The pizzas are really great, thin and crispy, and tasty - and are a generous size I could not finish mine. Also great selection of cocktails

It's been a while since we visited the Firehouse, and we were a little initially disappointed to see that the menu had a complete revamp....not that we dislike change or anything, but they had some great things they took off menu! Having said that, there were still plenty of choices, but they had no specials - unlike the old days.... More
