Chiswick Fire Station Catastrophe

Hey, do you want to come down the fire station with me?
Cosmo Kramer (Seinfeld episode “The Secret Code”)

The other day we were wandering around Chiswick looking for a place to have lunch. We noticed the recently opened No. 197 Fire Station, and just the look of the place was attractive enough to take or full attention.

Loved the décor of the place, really inviting, nicely play with whites giving a clean look with contrasting black chairs and stools, garden/terrace to al fresco option.

Service quite slow, our waiter was missing in action on a place at only half capacity. Things started to get worst as we ordered a rotisserie chicken and Mussels Mariniere. Well about 30min later of ordering the manager came to let us know that they make a mistake in the kitchen on oversold mussels, so we had to quickly ordered something else.

We ended with a decent chicken but you can have a similar one in Nando’s and an overcooked and quite average burger, probably quite close to one of the worst I have ever eaten.

Avoid at all cost

Lovely place but a complete train wreck with average food, at least the manager was decent enough giving us the burger free
