Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Fire Station

Interesting conversion of the old London County Council building, run by the Revere division of Marstons, but despite the high ceilings the decorative tiles reflect every shouty decibel meaning that it gets very loud when busy. It is also a pity that such a large area at the back is roped-off as an (expensive) dining room as this can leave the bar area at the front (and outside on the pavement) very crowded. Now has five handpumps - dispensing EVA, Hobgoblin Gold, Youngs London Gold, Sambrook's Wandle and Hackney APA (£4.50) - plus about 25 craft keg beers from taps on the bar-back.

E TA left this review about The Fire Station

A former Edwardian fire station converted into a bar and restaurant, currently run by Marstons but allows guest beers. The contrast between the original wall and floor tiles and the modern gantries strung between and across the original steel I-beams gives it a steampunk feel in places, provided you look hard enough. It's noisy, busy, anarchic, but somehow it works. The food is mainly burgers and pizzas, so not worth writing home about but it's functional when that is what is needed. There is a bank of 26 keg beers and four handpumps dispensing Hobgoblin, Marston's EPA and Pedigree, Sambrook's Wandle and Hackney APA. Beer was well-kept but more expensive than necessary. The staff were pleasant, most of the clientele civilised if a little inclined to hipsterism. Good enough for a fast food lunch or a quick pint.
