No.197 Chiswick Fire station - the former residence of the fire brigade is located in the heart of Chiswick high street. The open plan, naturally lit interior creates a rustic, simple and elegantly designed bar, which was buzzing with very happy customers- including ourselves.
No.197 strikes the perfect balance between glamour and comfort. Sit back in the plush benches or chairs, sip on your cocktail and enjoy some fresh, cooked from scratched, excellently sourced and Australian inspired food.
The bar offers seating either in the main open plan entrance or there are booths, which create an ideal spot for more private events. There is also a courtyard at the back for enjoying summer evenings - when we get them!
No.197 is part of the Darwin and Wallace group, they also own No.11 Pimlico Road, No.32 The Old Town in Clapham and No.1 Duke Street in Richmond - a collection of beautifully designed neighbourhood restaurants.
We were definitely impressed by our evening at No.197 - service, food, drinks, decor and atmosphere get our seal of approval.
