Wonderful to be able to visit just before lockdown 2 - as usual a great welcome, and wonderful food - especially the Venison.

Nice atmosphere in this bistro type place in the Abbeville road area. 3courses lunch menu at 26gbp is a great deal, all products are fresh and every dishes is well presented. This place share the same chef as the Trinity, the more poshy/gourmet style place arround clapham common. Also wines by the glass selection is good and not pricey at all. Highly recommended

We enjoyed a good meal with fine wines under COVID restrictions. We’ve eaten at Trinity on several occasions, and the drop in quality by comparison was nowhere near the drop in cost. There was enough choice on the menu to satisfy us without the worry that food is just reheated from frozen that an extensive menu can carry. We’d go back.

Had a lovely meal at Bistro Union on Saturday. Other than the masks, it felt almost like the good old pre-Covid days. Food was great, staff were attentive and the restaurant was full. Couldn't have asked for a better night out!!

It is always a pleasure to go to Bistro Union. The food is superb as are the friendly staff. My only thought is that perhaps there could be a vegetarian main and that would complete an otherwise wonderful menu.

Everything about Bistro Union is endearing. The staff are warmly welcoming, their standards of service outstanding, the menu always disparately exciting, the food both original a& superbly prepared and the atmosphere as sweet as you like. Oh, and the cocktails and wine list are great too.

Starter's good size, I felt the side's that came with the main's were very small and therefore had to order more but overall the taste was fantastic.

Food amazing and service excellent.
Couldn’t find the menu online for Sunday lunch and was a little surprised to find it was a little more for the 3 courses on a Sunday but nevertheless was probably worth it!

When this quality food is on your doorstep you would be mad not to become a regular. I am in love with the venison with beetroot. The blackberry's are a great touch.

I love the duck confirm and when it wasn't on the menu my heart sank.
Should I have fretted so? ABSOLUTELY NOT as the venison replacement was STUNNING. I will ensure I go several times before the next menu change to satisfy my fix
