Very surprised to find such a lovely old building with great atmosphere in Ringwood on the main highway. It is a converted fire station & they have done it well with lots of nooks & crannies. Lovely food some of it unusual but very nice. Only a small menu & no specials on the night we went but we all... More

Went for breakfast and although it was nice I wouldn't say it was value for money. Small portion size and no freshly squeezed juice was a bit of a disappointment. Overall the food was ok but in my opinion it could have been a little better

Have been here before in 2016. Food rocked (had the beef tartar and slow cooked lamb for two). 5 star for everything! Returned here in April 2017. Ambiance: Very Nice. Good feeling, enough privacy, good layout. Service: Very professional, table waiting perfect. When paying we were asked if we wish to leave a tip. Don't think this is OK (we... More

I had the fish and it was the best food I have ever eaten! I hope to have a birthday dinner with family here in one of the side rooms they have for special occasions, very nice and intimate but fun!

If you are new to the Ringwood area and are used to great dining places closer to the city, you will enjoy visiting this restaurant. Lots of different dining areas for example, if you go with a few friends, you can dine in a private room. There is a newish bar and outdoor decking area which looks fantastic. On the... More

6 of us spent an enjoyable saturday night at The Firehouse. The Eggplant lasagnette was a hit, as was the pasta ragu & the pork belly....however both diners were disappointed with their rather average risotto. We loved the location in the repurposed firestation. Friendly staff.

We visited for a luncheon as a large group. The atmosphere in here is friendly and warm and the staff are absolutely brilliant. They're very attentive and friendly. The menu is quite limiting for those who have food intolerances and not many vegetarian options which for a place of this "calibre" I would have thought would have been much more... More

We came here with our kids for an early dinner based on the rating in Trip Advisor. Service was good as we were the only patrons in the main room. We ordered the octopus starter and the firestarter. Both were tasty. We followed this with the burgers, pumpkin gnocchi and maple cured roast pork. It was okay except for the... More
