Went once with my partner and the food was good and service was nice. Came here a second time with my in-laws and received terrible service and mediocre food. We were told the pizzas would take longer than usual, about 20-25 minutes, because a large order of pizzas had gone in before ours. No problem. 40 minutes later they offered... More

A brilliant night out. Great atmosphere, super service and great tapas as usual - so many nice things, but the belly pork is to die for. Lots of cask ales to keep me happy and plenty cocktails to keep er indoors happy. You just need to come back time and time again.

Popped in for a bite to eat after reading some good feed back on Tripadvisor. We're not always keen on places that do multi cuisine, but as we couldn't make up our minds as to what we wanted we decided on firehouse. We weren't disappointed, it was very quite generally as it was the first weekend after new year. That... More

Stopped in for a drink on our NYD walk and ended up staying for food after looking through the menu. There is a good selection of things, something for everyone. We had a pizza, fries and some salt and pepper squid. There were all delicious and the perfect amount for us to share. The vegetable pizza we had was different... More

Had a great evening at The Firehouse when we visited for a meal and drinks. We were greeted with a cheerful smile from the barman and good choice of real ale, drinks and cocktails. The bar was busy with a lovely atmosphere. We went upstairs to eat where our pre-ordered wine in a cooler had been placed on the table... More

There's a great selection of drinks from cocktails to real ales, all of which were delicious ( we sampled many!) 6 of us went for a meal up stairs in the restaurant. It did not disappoint we had a selection... More

Visited as part of our annual Real Ale crawl. We were in Sowerby Bridge on a Thursday and this didn't open until 4.00 p.m. There was a decent selection of cask ale on and service as good. It has a wine bar feel, rather than a pub, but was still pretty good. Worth a visit.

Been here on numerous occasions, never disappointed. We must have got them on a bad day today. No hearing so the restaurant was very cold, food ok. Boar burger was very nice. Tapas just ok. Lemon cheesecake not good, it had a topping that resembled a melted haribo. Will give them the benefit of having an off day so I... More
