    The Fire Station: Gastro Pub near Waterloo

    by sue_stone Written Jun 26, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Fire Station is located right next to Waterloo Station, and is one of the original Gastro pubs in London.

    There is a large bar area at the front of this converted fire station, which has a really high beamed ceiling and memorabilia from the old fire station days on the wall.

    You can order bar snack and eat them in the main bar, or move to the rear to the restaurant area, where you can sit and relax over a tasty meal.

    I will say that I wasn't taken with the look of the bar area, but we walked straight through to the restaurant section for a late dinner. Again, it wasn't decorated to me taste, so I held hope for the food.

    Favorite Dish: The Fire Station specialises in modern British cuisine. We ate the most delicious duck breast with roast sweet potato and bok choy - it was very yum. Our friends ate the spinach canneloni and a type of vegetable pie. The servings were very generous.

    There was a large number of wines available by the glass, and service was friendly, though a little vague.

    Next to Waterloo Station, this place does excellent food of many types. Set in the glorious surroundings of an old fire station. Not cheap generally but you can get a two-course set meal for less than £20

    Favorite Dish: All
