Just had quizzer which includes a pizza a pint and a quiz.
Just such a fab evening. Quiz was really well run as usual. Service was excellent with very polite staff all round and delicious pizzas ,very quick, hot and tasty . I had the calzone which was so tasty and the base was fantastically crispy and thin.
The quiz master Ed as always delivered the quiz with wit and aplomb.
Well done Firehouse as usual you deliver a fun evening. Even better because it is Easter Sunday and you’ve made the big effort to open .

I had dinner here with my husband several times and we love the place. Nice and cosy atmosphere, welcoming and helpful staff and the food is always delicious. Pizza is my favourite in the area by far. Good choice of wine and gin. Very busy during the weekend. Highly recommended!

Just popped in on my way through to a business meeting in Cornwall. I had been here once or twice before over the last 2 years but not been in a while. I was fascinated to know how the place was doing....is it a one hit wonder?

The place is clearly popular as it was busy as anything. I thought pub and restaurants are quiet at the beginning of the year.

I had the Curry Rivel Calzone. Meaty and full of goodness. Beautifully cooked.

I had a quick pint of the seasonal Ale which I think was called Small World solid golden ale from Butcombe brewery.

Calzone was so large I had no room for pudding so cant comment on it! But will have to revisit and go for a smaller main next time to ensure there is room for a pud!

The staff were really friendly and I must give 2 thumbs up to my waitress Katie. Who was super attentive.

Keep up the good work Firehouse!

Been here a few times since my last review and again yesterday for dinner. Great atmosphere and really good food - we shared two meals - the burger was epic and the pizza was delicious. Highly recommend for drinks, food and a really nice place to spend a day.

We have just been to the Firehouse Restaurant for our third and final time.

An attractive venue but each time we have been, our impression of the food has been that it was mediocre and overpriced.

On our latest visit we waited 50 minutes before our food was served. It would have been nice if someone said sorry for the delay, but no one did..

Once again the food was very disappointing. My pizza base was so hard that my husband had to cut it for me.

We tried the Firehouse for the 3rd time in the hope that things would have improved but have now decided not to visit again.
