It’s a lovely space with many different uses. The main area consists of a bar with seating. Plain without any real frills but a relaxed atmosphere and in general a nice if somewhat unspectacular place for a drink.

Thank WMJAB

A very eclectic mix of customers, which I like. Quite a mixed crowed, given to the fact the bar is part of the Centre for Arts and so the clientele can often be effected by what is on/being shown. On sunny evening the huge old fire station doors are pulled all the way back to double the floor space onto the cobbled patio outside. Opposite the local fish and chip shop, greengrocers and corner shop. Always good people watching and bound to be a wave/node/shout of hello from local residents. Serve lovely gin and tonics with cucumber. A mix of tall stools and tables and easy sofas provide a little something for everyone. Staff could be a little friendlier and look a little happier at times. There is a room in the basement that can be hired out for gigs, possibly worth checking out what's on before heading down as could determine how busy/what age group but generally always a steady stream of 30+ something's enjoying a relaxed atmosphere.

Young or Old the Firestation can offer you something of interest. Comed,y music, theatre. Even a food van. If you want a true Windsor experience visit the website and book tickets for whatever takes your fancy. It is always a fun and vibrant environment.

Keep walking down the Main Street and you'll eventually come to the fire station. A very laid back bar. Scruffy sofas, good beer and very good wine. They also have very good comedy on from time to time so worth keeping an eye on the place. A real local bar with a difference.

I like this place because it's a bit querky and unusual! The drinks are tasty and the atmosphere is nice. Good place to take a friend from a drink :)
