Brentford Fire Station was opened in 1898 to serve the area. It finally closed it's doors in 1965 and lay dormant until 2003 when it was converted, as part of the regeneration of Brentford into The Old Fire Station Restaurant which remains open today.

On the face of the building you can see the crest for Middlesex in 1898 containing the three notched saxon knives. The lettering of The Fire Station is in Art Nouveau lettering which was at it's height at this time. The foundation stone is still present but the lettering is very weathered making it difficult to read. The inside of the restaurant has no original features left that I can see.
