I came here to catch up with some friends and was immediately impressed by the beautiful building and atmosphere. This was only further topped off by outstanding service and delicious food. I would highly recommend a visit here.

My business partner and I went here for a business lunch and were very impressed by the generous meals, the polite and unobtrusive staff and the relaxed environment. We will definitely return!

My all time favorite place to visit in Ringwood for breakfast lunch or dinner. The venue is beautifully restored, in keeping with the heritage of the building. The service is always exceptional and the food is divine. I always love coming back here to the Firehouse!

I must say was very impressed when entering the venue, beautifully presented without going over the top. My partner and I found our way to the bar (very cosy) for light snacks and drinks.

For such a great venue, the menu is fairly uninspired....... Standard breakfasts, standard lunch, standard desserts, standard dinners and a missed opportunity to stand out from every other restaurant in the area. As always, as a vegan, there is nothing to chose from and I have to try to put together a few side dishes to make up something I... More

The setting of the firehouse is lovely and we received wonderful service from the staff. It was the food itself that let it down. I had gnocchi which was floury and tasteless, the sauce had no flavour and it was meant to be Gorgonzola! I had to drown it in salt and pepper to get any kind of flavour into... More

This old fire station still holds the remnants of its history within. Inside you'll find the wide garage opening is now a light filled window and there are photos of firemen from yesteryear tastefully decorating the walls. The food is divine albeit a little pricey but if you are looking for ambience then this is the place. Suitable for couples... More
