Called in on the Off chance for food and stayed over three hours. Bar staff very friendly especially beth, we had a Cajun chicken burger each with fries and drinks of choice for ten pounds from their daily specials board. Going again tomorrow for steak with pepper corn sauce home cut chips and vine tomatoes all for a tenner. Try it for yourselves.

Hello,
the food is nothing special just average, the portions are not large and the chips come in a tiny little bucket,. ( you get about 8 chips the size of your thumb) i'm not sure if it has changed hands? as i've eaten there before. service was ok. the girls who worked the floor were very busy. the air con was very cold so be carefull where you sit, some tables are in directly in front of Air con unit ( avoid). Its also a long way to the toilets you must down 2 flights of stairs and push through a crowded bar to get to them. Also the Accessible toilet ( Disabled) was out of order.

Four of us arrived at 8.15pm as pre booked. After 10 mins got menus and ordered food. 45 mins later starters arrived and weren't too bad but no apologies for how long they took to arrive. I jokingly said let's hope the mains don't take as long but oh yes they did. Mine and my friends tuna steaks were like cardboard, we could not eat them and said we weren't prepared to pay for such bad food. My other friends pizza was also shocking and she managed to eat one piece. My other friends Cajun chicken was reasonable and she managed to eat hers. They did not charge us for the tuna steaks and we finally left at 10.50pm still hungry due to the poor food and the length of time we had to wait was totally ridiculous. Apparently they had two large groups in who arrived after us but because they had pre ordered got priority over us! It would have been nice to have been informed of this and given the option to either wait or go elsewhere. Will not be returning. Other small tables around us had complaints too of bad food and length of time they had to wait too.

Drove through Sowerby Bridge looking for somewhere to eat on Bank Holiday Monday, having found all places we thought of initially were closed ! So to find the Firehouse open at 2.30pm was great. Having previously visited when it first opened and really enjoyed it, we were keen to return to see if it was as good as we remembered. We ordered 2 pizzas and a drink each as part of the special deal available and very nice they were too. The staff and service was very good, no complaints but saying that there were only 2 other couples in at the same time, if that would be the same on a busy Friday evening I can't say but we really enjoyed the pizzas and would visit again.

We visited the firehouse on Sunday, although i have had previous bad experiences, i thought i would give it the benefit of the doubt one last time. We arrived and got some drinks and made our way upstairs, we were shown to our table. We sat for around 10 minutes before the waitress gave us menus as she said she had been forgetting to give people menu's all day... Great start. We ordered our food, the starters were nice couldn't fault them. We all ordered the steak specials. The steak arrived, they looked alright so we began eating.. 3 out of the 5 steaks were terrible! They had clearly gone off, they smelt so bad, and tasted even worse. I think its disgusting that these 3 steaks had made their way to the table and the chef hadn't realised before. I would be embarrassed if i had sent them out. Totally unacceptable. To be fair the waitress handled the situation well and took them off our bill.
Unfortunately i have had too many bad experiences here and will not be visiting again! And to top it off i am now spending the day after feeling so sick and unwell.
