Brigade, London

Based at the historic Fire Station on Tooley Street, Brigade Bar and Bistro is a unique social enterprise with an appetite for distinctive food and individual service led by Chef Founder Simon Boyle.


Brigade was built in 1879 as a part of the Metropolitan Fire Brigade, to save lives and protect property following the devastating Tooley Street Fire of 1861, seen as the worst since The Great Fire of London. Today, Brigade is using the same values of social responsibility to make it a vibrant and authentic venue.

Apprenticeship programme

At Brigade, outstanding food does more than just provide pleasure. Together with the Beyond Food Foundation, the outlet offers vulnerable people catering apprenticeships, providing them the qualifications and personal mentoring necessary to ensure they are able to find sustainable employment in the future.
