A great way to spend the weekend? In a snug at Chiltern firehouse of course:).Any day at Chiltern Firehouse would be great but Sundays in a snug is divine:) The waitresses decked out in baby pink Emilia Wickstead suits, the doormen Greet you in the candlelit courtyard with top hats.
This Victorian-gothic building that houses Chiltern Firehouse has been transformed from an old fire station (one of the oldest in London, built in 1889) into one seriously glamorous restaurant, and soon-to-be-opened hotel. Everywhere in the Chiltern Firehouse is basically like a film set. It’s green velvet booth seats and your own personal fireplace makes the snug the cosiest place to sit and chill.
The bathroom is an underground cave of interior design heaven with vintage toilets black and white tiles and the fantastic mirror leaving you inadvertently to ‘Cigerettes & Men’ – watch the step 🙂
The look of the place is like a film set featuring your hostess dressed in designer gear – their bright, colour block Emilia Wickstead jumpsuits will give you major wardrobe inspo. While the barmen in gleaming white suit jackets serve champagne. The décor has an old Hollywood feeling and vibe about it with white tiled walls and industrial touches, including the a huge open kitchen.
The food… Waiters swarm about being impossibly attentive as they enquire what would you like? Stay away from the Macoroni cheese if you like simplicity as it features too many add Ons I.e peppers and corn…
The grilled octopus is great as is the broccoli. Slightly scared as I don’t eat eat meat there isn’t many fish mains; The Firehouse Caesar of crispy chicken skin, crunchy cos lettuce and parmesan shavings wins as my favourite dish and is amazing… Favourite cocktail : The firemans Drill 🙂
Go and book that snug NOW 🙂
