Located in the heart of London Bridge, the Brigade Bar + Kitchen is a bustling all-day brasserie that offers a vibrant dining experience. The menu features classic British dishes with a twist, as well as theatrical live-wood-fired options.

We can be found within the Fire Station on Tooley Street, one of London's most historic and ancient fire stations. Established in 1879 as an integral part of the Metropolitan Fire Brigade in response to the Great Fire of Tooley Street, the station was originally designed to protect lives from fire hazards. Today, the same philosophy remains at the heart of our restaurant.

More than just a restaurant, the Brigade Bar + Kitchen was created with social purpose in mind. Home to the Beyond Food Foundation, a charity that provides life-changing opportunities to individuals whose lives have been impacted, regardless of their past or present circumstances. By choosing to dine with us, you can make a meaningful difference and support an incredible cause.

    The food was excellent, particularly the tempura oyster mushrooms and the chicken. Reasonably priced wine list and excellent service. Overall it was a very enjoyable evening and we will continue to be regulars. One of our favourite restaurants in London.

    Everything was just about “ok” but nothing was amazing. Walked past this place every week for over a year finally got round to trying it out. Don’t realise it was a smoke house. Not to my taste but that’s my problem not theirs, but other things like Smoked cauliflower cheese - little cheese sauce, lots of smoked cauliflower not great. Not one I’ll be returning to, but equally I can understand why others would.

    The visit was a special occasion, a chance to meet up with friends. We loved the menu. I am keen to support the work and values that underpin the Brigade.

    Nice restaurant with contemporary decor. I understand the inspirational sentiment of 'Beyond Food' and helping the homeless. The waiters were a little nervous and the food order was incorrect but overall the lunch was tasty.

    We had high hopes for Brigade Bar & Kitchen - reviews great and photos made the place look fun and vibrant. But the reality sadly wasn’t so. In terms of ambience it’s more like an airport feel restaurant, lacking in any sort of authenticity or life, like a hotel restaurant. It seemed a bit “textbook” and naff. Although the staff were friendly, unfortunately service was slow and strange. They actually forgot our order and it was a good hour or so before we got our food. I did ask after about 30mins or so if our food was coming and the waitress said yes and went to check - I turned around to see the chefs scratching their heads looking confused. I could tell they’d lost our order, so instead of telling us the truth they said nothing. The waitress never came back, instead 15min later I had to ask again, they then said it was “plating up”, it then was another 5/10min before we actually got food. We had literally watched people walk in after us, eat and leave! The veggie breakfast was completely overpriced. £11 for a tiny serving of quite cold food. Apparently the buttermilk chicken brioche was “ok but nothing special”. On a positive note, with all the waiting we had to do we had a great catch up with our cousin and her new baby!

    The food was excellent. We had a goat stew and it was excellent. We hadn’t ordered a starter as we thought it might be heavy. It was a perfect amount and left room for dessert .
