Union Review

Maps can be deceptive. The Union Bar & Restaurant in Marylebone may look a good hike from Marble Arch, but it is in fact little more than a hop, skip and a jump. Perhaps next time you're looking to take a break from the shopping madness that is Oxford Street you might consider paying 'The Union' a visit.

Upon entering the establishment, through one of the doors framing the floor-to-ceiling glass frontage, you arrive in a tastefully decorated modern two-floor bar. The ground floor (main bar) has been filled with a scattering of brown leather sofas, small tables and chairs and a bar running down the right-hand side.

The atmosphere when we visited was convivial with office workers enjoyed a 'slightly longer than average lunch' to the sound of chilled dance beats.

We were impressed by the attentiveness of the service from the waitresses who moved constantly between the tables. The bottles of beer were cold, and the food warm - the dishes we sampled were making the most of season ingredients. If one had to find fault it might be with a gap between out starters and mains - many however might see this a plus; not being rushed through courses.

Downstairs in the basement area (which was still under development when we visited) has to be one of, if not THE finest assets the Union has - a pool table!!! How often do you see one of these in London today? Why the management don't scream more about this so seldom seen jewel we don't know. And what is worrying is that they are deciding whether to keep it.

To finish - the Union Bar & Dining Room is an easygoing place that offers a high level of customer service. They, like many other venues in a similar location, have to endure the fluctuations in patronage through a strong dependence on office workers. Why not help the Union achieve a more stable flow of custom by paying them a visit? And while you're there tell them to keep the pool table!!

“Union bar is great, its so friendly, always so busy (lunch times and evenings after work), they've got a real 'work hard' attitude there, with great cocktails. Such a pity the staff there change so frequently, they're great. They always get you everything you need.”

Lola Serano, London (12 years 6 months 29 days ago)

“Best place to spend your weekday evenings around Baker Street if you're not ready to a] venture out to a club or b] your plan is to eat first, and then party - Union is modern enough to have a good beer & premium spirit selection and serves up solid gastro pub style food. Bar staff are friendly, lively and fun. ”

“Nice place to come and talk - as opposed to scream over the music. Even on busy nights like Thursday or Friday you'll find some space for your pint and their gorgeous nibble plates - and when you're jolly enough play a game of pool downstairs. ”

Trisha, Norwich / London (13 years 7 months 26 days ago)

“I have never had such posh food in such a down to earth place - all sorts of gorgeous bites. if you don't work around Baker Street they are a bit tucked away but it is so worth the time - pool table, really friendly staff, lovely cocktails.”
