“Delightful cafe - the best place by far for lunch in Tarporley.”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

I have visited this cafe regularly for a light Sunday lunch with an elderly relative for a number of years now. We have tried other cafes in the area, but always return to the Old Fire Station as there is simply no competition. The quality of hot food is consistently good, well presented, good value and well sized. There is a great range of food on offer, from hot meals to sandwiches - there is bound to be something to tempt you here. Staff are pleasant and always accommodating. There is a delightfully peaceful outdoor seating area in Summer. Tea is served by the pot, so you get several cups per person, plus a little chocolate and caramelised biscuit treats as well - quite superb. One suggestion to the owners for addition to the menu - some warm desserts would be a great addition to the (albeit extensive) cake selection.

“Loved it!”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Having heard nothing but good things about The Old Fire Station , my partner and I decided to drive out there for coffee and cake. We were not disappointed! The smell of freshly brewed coffee was wonderful and cake tasted lovely and fresh. We found the staff very friendly and attentive . We had 2 cups and then went into the adjoining chocolate shop and bought a selection of their hand-made treats, a coaster featuring a dog in a car hoping he/she was going to the park and NOT the vets (!!) and some birthday cards.
We will be back!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

Visit here on regular occasions, normally 2 or 3 times a week! Amazing food, and don't even get me started on the ice creams and desserts! My family love it here, and its a regular child friendly spot, with amazing atmosphere and service! Highly recommend it!
