There was almost nothing on the menu that was vegetarian (let alone vegan), and the prices of the food were very high. The service was friendly, and the sunny windows were lovely during sunset. Overall tasty, but they don't seem conscious about changes food preferences....More

Business dinner on a Thursday lunchtime, completely full with not a single spare seat in the building. Sublime sushi, great burgers and even an awesome salad. Really good food and service, together with good atmosphere. What is there not to like, nothing at all.

Enjoyed dinner at the Firehouse while on business. The sports bar has an abundance of well placed screens, covering a variety of sporting events continually. The food (especially the fish and chips) was extremely well prepared. Service was very good, and the prices were reasonable.

I think they would definetely have the space but you may have to rent out the entire restaurant. I believe they have an extra upper floor extra to their main dining room.
