This has become our local favourite. The pub itself is a good size, cozy but not too small - we usually get a table. They play all the sports my other half loves to watch. And the Thai food is the best I've had in...More

Visited firefly with friends who had been before but it really was superb. Service was good and the atmosphere is typical of a London restaurant. Thai food here is very authentic with nice size portions and it's great value. All in all a great experience...More
