Entering through the original carriage doors of the fire engine bays, you discover Mathura – the new restaurant from pioneering and twice Michelin-starred chef Atul Kochhar. Mathura is the culinary culmination of Kochhar’s travels around India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan.

Modern dining meets historic character

The restaurant showcases the renowned chef’s signature Indian flair and love of locally grown British produce, while bringing unexpected twists to excite and delight diners.

Spread over two floors, the dining rooms and bar are equally as dramatic as the food. Many original features have been retained, including the ceramic tiled brick walls, exposed steel beams across the four-metre-high ceilings, and the fireman’s pole. But perhaps most special of all is the original Watch Room – a feature rarely retained in fire station redevelopments – which has been protected and repurposed as a private dining space. 

Mathura offers a unique dining experience to drink in the atmosphere and explore new fusions of flavour in a historic ambience.
