I haven't visited Bistro Union for a while but was very pleased to see that there are more permanent staff than there have been in the past so hope the consistency will offer better hospitality. Certainly the hospitality has improved since I was last there...More

First visit to Bistro Union, Family group of seven, Everyone enjoyed the dinner. Food was of a high quality, service was attentive. Clapham isn't my local area but will endeavour to visit Bistro Union again.

Very friendly staff, excellent service, very good food, and they even put a gorgeous bouquet of flowers on the table and didn't charge for them. Not many restaurants would do that. Overall excellent and recommended.

I visited this restaurant with my family for Sunday lunch with high hopes given the reviews and connection to Trinity. Unfortunately, there were a number of problems. My brother disliked the soup of the day so much he hardly touched it. My starter of smoked...More

I've been going to Bistro Union since it opened, probably been there 50 times. The service has been average at best throughout the years, and the food, with its seemingly unchanging menu, although a tad tedious is always of decent quality. Unfortunately on my last...More
