Bistro Union Description

Bistro Union is located in the centre of Abbeville Village in Clapham. Owned and run by the team behind the award-winning Trinity restaurant, Bistro Union is a British neighbourhood restaurant where all things quintessentially British take precedence.

Bistro Union is divided into four areas, all offering the same menu and beverage list but in different settings. The rear, main space of the restaurant seats 20 guests in cosy surroundings with Chesterfield leather banquet seats and low lighting. At the front of the restaurant there are tables for a further 20 diners as well as 12 stools surrounding a

large wood clad feature bar top. In keeping with the informal nature of the restaurant, no reservations will be taken in this front area. Finally, there is outside space to seat 12 in the summer months.

Bistro Union’s Head Chef is Karl Goward who previously spent several years working under Ferguson Henderson opening St John Bread and Wine. He also was the Head Chef at Soho House New York and before that worked at Prune.

The menu at Bistro Union offers 8 starters and 8 main courses, seasonal sides and a selection of puddings and cheeses. Featuring British classic dishes, the menu changes seasonally to reflect the best of the UK’s indigenous ingredients and is accessible and simply explained.

Diners at the eating bar are able to choose from a menu of 10 daily changing bar snacks listed on a drop down brown paper roll. Alongside, Afternoon Tea is available between 3pm and 4.30pm comprising a selection of sandwiches, scones, crumpets and homemade jam with pots of English teas.

 

Bistro Union's design has been inspired by the traditional British spirit of thrift and resourcefulness whilst remaining chic and most importantly, comfortable. The bar has been tiled in London Underground tiles, original copper and brass fittings remain and with new elements and a generous splash of reclaimed materials, stools and benches, Bistro Union feels like a home away from home.

 

In keeping with the familial atmosphere and ethos of the restaurant there are lockers above the bar for guests to purchase bottles of spirits to own and store on site. Draft drinks include organic lager supplied by Freedom Brewery in London and English cider from Orchard Pig. House vodka and gin is supplied by another British success story - Sipsmith.

With these elements, and quirky touches such as ‘B-Union’ – the restaurant’s own beehives that provide honey all year round, Bistro Union is a firm local favourite.

"Hi guys, I come here with my friends and have very good time. I like your place very much and is very good times. I come back when I can soon. Thank you very much." Which venue is this?

Hated

"Dreadful pub, run by people who have zero idea about hospitality or running a pub. Upon arrival we sat in the back garden that only had one other table occupied , when we tried to order off the lunch menu..." Which venue is this?
