Second visit for me to Bistro Union and was just as good as the first time. Friendly staff, gorgeous menu, great atmosphere. This was for Sunday brunch and was spoilt for choice with the menu. Wild Mushrooms on toast is worth returning for! Glad we pre booked as lots of people being turned away for lack of tables. Looking forward to next visit!

Great service where the staff didn't rush us out
Food is fab British gastro-pub cuisine at reasonable prices.

Liver parfait is one of the best I had - smooth and creamy

The only glitch that night was the pump for the beers not working so we had to get a bottle beer but that was explained to us very nicely

Well worth a visit every day and the Sunday Supper club is great fun with a changing menu put together for something different and a free hand for the chief and the BYO on a Sunday evening gives it a happy twist but check out the Supper club on line as it is a fixed menu changing every week friendly helpful staff a little gem in a village setting
