Flame & Fire
Fourth visit and will be our last. The menu was very limited. Lots of options on the Sunday menu, but this was Friday, so 3 fish dishes, 3 meat dishes and a vegetarian option. It was a case of having the least unappealing dish, rather than the most appealing. The waitress was very good, but we either had a choice of a table by the opening door which was very cold, or the single table in the back room where the broom was stored, so not the most attractive setting. Finally the 10% service charge was a bit steep given our meals arrived at different times.
A shame as our first visit last year was excellent but it seems to be losing its way.
Great relaxed place to catch up with friends. Staff very helpful and polite, willing to help at all times. Food good did not wait too long. It would be great to have a choice of various chips as We was not keen on the Chucky skinned chips. Overall would return again

The food was excellent and service was very attentive. Keyboard player was very good, not to loud so you could still have a conversation around the table.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us this review. We are very happy to hear you enjoyed your time with us and hope to see you again soon :)
This is an excellent restaurant producing delicious food - using an extremely popular artisan butcher as it's meat supplier. Everyone really enjoyed their starters mains and desserts.
I am somewhat surprised why it's not packed every night as decor comfort food staff are all excellent!
The only negative thing I could say is the music is quite variable. Quite an eclectic selection and mostly just providing a pleasant background. They happily change it if asked I've found!
Thank you localyokel for leaving us this review. We are very happy to hear you all enjoyed your meal! We truly appreciate your support and hope to see you again soon. We appreciate your feedback re the music and have shared this with the team. If you get the time to drop us a line or tell us more when you next come in that would be greatly appreciated :) Thanks again and happy new year!
This was a family get together over a Sunday roast and I was very impressed with the roast dinner, including the veggie roast which was exceptional. Particularly enjoyed the range of veg, quality of Yorkshire puddings and amount of gravy - often a disappointment in a pub roast!
Staff were helpful and the light, spacious atmosphere was great for a family meal.
Good drinks and gin options too.
We were so impressed that some of our party are now considering the pub and function room as a wedding venue!
Thank you very much Emmarabbit for your 5 star review! We are very happy you enjoyed your Sunday roasts and getting together with your family here. It was a pleasure having you all and we hope to see you again soon! :)
I went to the Flame & Fire with a friend for our Christmas get together and had an excellent meal. We both love steaks and the one we got could not have been any better. Was really melting in your mouth and was so tasty. The only small disappointment was that we couldn't order from their Christmas menu, which was the 1st page of the menu card. Didn't realise that you had to pre-order this 3 days in advance so don't think they should include it in their menu card. Otherwise really nice evening with friendly staff as well.
Thank you Crazydane for leaving this review. We are really pleased to hear you enjoyed your Christmas get together, and the steaks! Noted re the Christmas menu - thank you for the feedback. We truly appreciate it and hope to see you again soon! Happy new year to you in the meantime :) and best wishes from us.
The service was better than ever, and it is always good. Oscar was great!
Many thanks for leaving us this review 😍 we hope to see you again soon 🥂
A very nice local restaurant. Steaks were excellent.
Thank you for leaving this review SanC 😃 we're pleased you enjoyed the steaks and look forward to welcoming you again 🙌
Have been twice now and both times have had wonderful food and great service. I hope they are around to stay.
Exceptional value for money especially the set menu.
Order sides with main. The prices are so reasonable it is not a ply to get extra cash but the waiters do not push it And I think they should! The spinach side is gorgeous!!
Thank you Clairederoz for taking the time to leave this review 😃 we truly appreciate your support and your feedback. We particularly like the spinach too! 🙌 See you soon!
Excellent service. Delicious food. Lovely atmosphere.
Thanks for leaving us this review NickName 😃 we're really pleased you enjoyed your time with us and hope to see you again soon 🙌
Delicious cote de boeuf. Very well cooked and seasoned. As good as the bone in ribeye at Goodmans. Great service. The burger was not good as it was dry and not juicy but the steaks are excellent.
Thank you very much Chris for leaving us this review. We have passed your feedback on to the team. Thanks again, F&F
very nice atmosphere. and very obliging staff who were obviously proud of their restaurant and rightly so.
Generous portions of roast dinner were served , the only suggestion is that gravy is served on the side
Thank you for leaving us this review JoLo :) Best wishes, F&F
Went to Flame & Fire for my partners 30th birthday For the first time. Food was amazing, service was great they said they were very busy and kept apologising for things taking so long even though they did not take long at all. We ordered the salmon steak sea bass and lamb and each meal was fantastic. Very happy with our meal price was good for the quality of food. 100% would go back again! would recommend reserving a table before going was surprised how many tables were reserved when entering the restaurant but had a reservation myself. Only thing I would suggest would maybe expand vegetarian option as the only option was pasta!
Thanks very much for taking the time to leave us this review Aoife, we are very happy to hear you enjoyed your time with us to celebrate your partner's 30th birthday. We appreciate your support and have passed your feedback onto the team including floor and kitchen staff. Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon. Best wishes, F&F
A great meal which all of us really enjoyed. There were lots of gluten free options too and the staff were very helpful and made sure the gluten free options were explained to me. The children’s meals were a really big size for the children and great value. The only downside was there was music playing in the restaurant competing with the music playing in the bar at the rear of the restaurant which was really distracting. But don’t let that put you off as the food here is excellent, and very good value for money.
Thanks very much for leaving this review TaraH 😀 we truly appreciate your support and hope to see you again soon! We have noted your feedback on the sound also (restaurant and bar) which we will look into. Many thanks for taking the time to recommend us. Best wishes, F&F
food was amazing and the service first class. will definitely be going again
Thanks very much MandyD 😀 we are very pleased you enjoyed your visit to F&F and we look forward to seeing you again 🙌
Great Sunday Roast and very good service.
Thanks Panda 😃 we're really pleased you enjoyed our Sunday roasts and we'll pass your feedback on to the team! Hope to see you again soon, best wishes, F&F
Delicious steaks cooked well. The chef clearly knows his meat and has great cooking technique.
Thank you very much for leaving us this review Chris 🙌 we truly appreciate your support and hope to see you again soon! Osman says thanks especially for the compliment re cooking technique 😀
My first visit to this little gem of a restaurant & I’ll definitely be back. Warm, friendly, great food, excellent Malbec & very reasonably priced. A lovely licks find
Thanks for your review Seja, we're really pleased you discovered us and enjoyed your first visit to F&F :) we look forward to seeing you again. Best wishes,
Lovely Sunday afternoon spent at F&F
You get such a warm welcome and it’s a cracking little local where you get the feeling they really care.
Spot on fishcake to start and followed by five cracking rib eyes with superb sides to accompany
My chocolate cheesecake desert could’ve been a bit stronger in flavour but still nice
All washed down with a great bottle of red, a couple of Efes lagers and one or three HopHouses (across five of us mind!!)
We’ll be back again soon
Thanks very much for leaving your review! We're very happy you enjoyed your Sunday afternoon here :) and we look forward to seeing you again. Our Sunday Roasts are making a return (now the weather has cooled) so if you come again on a Sunday you'll get the option of roasts, alongside steak and fish options :) Thanks again :)
Best steaks in ages! All the dishes were beautifully presented. Service very attentive and friendly but not intrusive. Well worth a visit.
Thanks for taking the time to leave this review John. We're really pleased you enjoyed your visit and we look forward to seeing you again soon! :)
We went on a Wednesday and had the pleasant surprise of steaks being 25% off. Very enjoyable meal. We will be back.
Thanks for taking the time to leave this review StuartC. we're really pleased you enjoyed your time with us and hope to see you again soon!
Obviously still finding their feet - good potential.
Starters came very quickly, but mains were quite slow; and main dishes were also only warm and not hot (apart from the fries). We did not order any steak dishes (had lamb and seafood ones); which may have been a mistake as I think steak is the main deal here.
Hophouse13 lager on tap was nice and cold, and pleasantly lively (not flat). Staff pleasant and willing but a bit overrun on this occasion.
Overall an OK experience; so will come again but not in a rush to do so.
Thanks for taking the time to leave this review MMlondon; we were busier than normal on that Wednesday evening and the staff were a little overrun. We're sorry to hear your experience was less than 5 star. We'd love to see you again and have the chance to make it up to you. Please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org at any time. We've shared your feedback with the team in the meantime. Many thanks, F&F
Food was delicious, service attentive and discrete. Nice ambience. Great gem in South Ealing.
Thanks very much for your review DawnG. we're really happy you enjoyed your visit and look forward to seeing you again. Best wishes, F&F
As a neighbouring business owner and steak lover, I was keen to try out Flame & Fire which is being highly reviewed locally since it opened recently.
Starters were very good... garlic king prawns with the offer of shelling them in the kitchen which my wife appreciated, and good calamari. The fillet steak with duck pate main was very good and a minor confusion over chips ordered as a side was rectified quickly and without fuss.
Not so good points...
The burger in a brioche bun that my daughter had was a little dry which I pointed out at the end of the meal and our server said that was probably because she opted for no salad in the burger. No... the burger was slightly over cooked and therefor dry.
Disappointing to have no alcohol free drink option. I appreciate that, although readily available in shops, alcohol free wine in a restaurant is unusual, but I would expect at least an alcohol free beer. Didn’t even have a bitter lemon so had to settle for sparkling water and tonic water.
As we were a six o’clock booking the restaurant was almost empty so it did feel as if the three servers were staring at us during the ordering and eating the starters which made my daughter a little uncomfortable. I’m sure there was no intent but just a couple of tweaks would elevate the overall experience. That being said, we will definitely go back there.
Thank you for taking the time to leave this review carpetman8020. We appreciate your feedback and have passed this on to both the kitchen and floor staff. We're really pleased you enjoyed the garlic king prawns, calamari and steak with duck pate. Re alcohol-free beers we agree and are ordering some this week - thanks for the nudge. It would be great to see you again and if your daughter would like to try a burger again we'll make sure it's nice and juicy! Best wishes, F&F
First time we’d tried this place even though it’s very local to us and been open three or more months.
Popped along on the Friday evening of the Bank Holiday weekend and we were looking forward to tucking into a good steak dinner.
The welcome on arrival was lovely and the decor done really well. It was quite early and a few tables already in but well seated so nice ambience and unfussed.
We went for the garlic mushrooms starter and it was absolutely wonderful, probably the stand out dish of the evening.
I had the T-bone for main which was 500g and cooked exactly as requested. Quite tasty and the asparagus with it done very well. The missus went for rib eye which unfortunately was a bit too grisly for her liking so she only rated as okay. Her wilted spinach was however fantastic.
We didn’t need deserts but unfortunately the menu was too tempting!!!! Three chocolate cheesecake hit the spot and the peanut parfait cake also very nice.
We washed all this down with a lovely bottle of Merlot which was well priced and I’ll certainly be having it again.
Good little local this, already booked to return with others in the family.
Thanks for your review Goodeater, we're really happy you enjoyed your first visit to Flame & Fire! Our garlic mushrooms are pretty popular here so you're in good company :) Great that you enjoyed your T-bone steak, asparagus and wilted spinach.. plus the Merlot and desserts (phew)... we've passed on your comments to the kitchen, including your feedback on the rib-eye. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We're looking forward to seeing you and your family soon :)
Lovely restaurant, food was full of flavor and well presented. Birthday dinner with family, we had a nice evening, great atmosphere and staff was attentive and very helpful. Hoping to re-visit again! Thank you for great service and food.
Thanks for your recommendation Girlsnightout! We're really happy you enjoyed your family birthday meal with us and we look forward to welcoming you again soon :) Many thanks, F&F
I have already recommended Flame and Fire to friends. The dining room is spacious and well laid out. We had been told the steaks were particularly good and they were! We both had fillet steak cooked to perfection with real potato chips and spinach. We chose a Pinot Noir and this was excellent. We shared the sticky toffee pudding. The service was particularly good and the chef was very keen to have our opinion of the food.
Thanks for your review PennyB, we're really pleased you had a good time with us and you enjoyed the steaks and Pinot Noir. We've passed your feedback on to the team. Thanks again and hope to see you soon :)
An absolute gem in Ealing, delicious food and great staff. We will definitely visit again!
Thanks very much for your review CorneliaV; we're really happy you enjoyed your visit and we look forward to welcoming you again. Best wishes, F&F
We had 3 courses and the food was very good - decent steak. Service a bit mixed - main course took ages, lots of waiters but not always that attentive / knowledgeable. Still relatively new so will probably improve. Ambience ok. Overall a good addition to Ealing dining and would come again.
Thanks for taking the time to leave this review. We're really pleased you enjoyed your meal including the steak. We apologise there was a bit of a wait for your main course on Mother's day. We hope to see you again. Best wishes, F&F
We had a great Mother's Day lunch, our first visit. We got a friendly welcome and were delighted to be taken through to a candle-lit rear room. Both dining areas have a bar, there were plenty of servers, and the special menu was comprehensive. We chose the steak platter with chips for our main, the meat was very tender and tasty, though maybe a minimal serving of green veg would have added a finishing touch. Otherwise, a really enjoyable experience, would not hesitate to recommend Flame and Fire to anyone.
Thanks very much for your recommendation BarbaraR, we're really pleased you enjoyed your Mother's Day meal with us and we look forward to welcoming you again. Your feedback has been shared with the kitchen and waiting staff also. Best wishes, F&F
Lovely evening at Fire and Flame tonight. Best 3 course meal we’ve had in Ealing for years. Staff and the owners super friendly. Thoroughly recommended - we’ll certainly be back - and wish them every success.
Thanks so much for your review Daniel. We are really happy you enjoyed it and we look forward to seeing you again soon. Best wishes
Great menu choice, all beautifully presented and tasted fantastic (between us we tried calamari, scallops, tiger prawns, sea bass and fillet steak). Wonderful service and very reasonably priced.
Thanks for your review Michelle. We're really happy you enjoyed your evening and hope to see you again soon :) Best wishes
Dinner on a Wednesday.
The place was cosy and quiet with a warm reception and ambience.
Both waiter and waitress for the night were welcoming and professional. Excellent service.
Food was really good. Main course of fillet mignon, peppercorn sauce and fries was outstanding as the meat was cooked to perfection and the sauce really tasty.
Dessert : sticky toffee pudding and the sorbet were both excellent.
Jumbo prawns in chili and garlic sauce starter was really tasty and cooked really well .
The scallops starter was good but it could be improved in flavour with a bit of caramelization on the outside of the scallops and peas puree also lacked of flavour so could be improved.
Overall we really liked this restaurant and we will be back to try more dishes from the menu and also to try the Sunday roast.
We had also a 20% off the final bill using a special promotion code from the restaurant website.
We really recommend this restaurant.
Good value for money.
Thanks for your review GianlucaM. We're really happy you enjoyed your time with us :) We've passed your compliments about the service on to the team and your feedback on the food too. Thanks again and see you soon
Varied menu and high quality food - we enjoyed all our dishes. Staff very helpful without being pushy and attractive atmosphere
