I was in the neighbourhood looking for somewhere to catch up on business (tables for laptops, wifi access for emails, light lunch, coffee etc). The Holliday Inn across the road was undergoing renovation/completion so wasn't available... but their front of house staff wisely suggested I go to the Union Tavern.
Turned out to be a very good call, the staff were attentive & very welcoming & the food definitely exceeded expectations - really good falafel.
Will look to go to the Union Tavern again, & not just for a work stop.

We went for Sunday Lunch last Sunday and the food was lovely and very good. When the bill turned up I saw a service charge included of 12.5%, when I checked the menu it was mentioned but in very small print on the bottom of the menu. Why can't these places let us tip the staff as we wish and not include the service charge. 12.5% is a bit high!!!

Having safely delivered my son back to uni nearby, I wanted him to have a decent meal as he'll be dining on pasta and ping meals until his next visit home! We chose Union Tavern from a search of local pubs/restaurants and I am so pleased we did.

To start we had a ham and cheese ravioli dish and a seafood & pesto casserole - both delicious. We both had the pork belly roast as our main course and it was an excellent choice, the pork was perfect and hit the spot. We couldn't manage a dessert and didn't even look at the options - we were far too full. At £12.95 for a roast or £13.95 for two courses, this is amazing value and in London too!

Great food, good service and a good atmosphere - we'll definitely be back for more.

We had been in for lunch and found the staff friendly and efficient, the food was great! Went to see a show then got a taxi back for a nightcap. Despite arriving at 22.28 and the posted bar opening time being until 23.00 the wouldn't serve us saying last orders had been called. We were a couple not a noisy group. Disappointed. Shame.
