Over priced and not great food or service. To add insult to injury they not only add a service charge but also a cover charge! Certainly won't be returning.


Charming bar staff, just stopped by for a quick vino as is our way on a rainy London afternoon. Wine was Marlborough Kiwi Sauv Blanc and was "fine". What wasn't fine was being charged £18.00 for two glasses (small) This is ridiculous, this is SW4 not W1. Disappointing, what a shame.


my food was burnt too and no discount off the bill offered in compensation. had high hopes for this place as love trinity but unfortunately wont be returning.


My meal was burnt, my partner was served an undercooked foul, it must have been a very off night but I will never go there again.

Adam Byratt has done it again. Following the success of Trinity down in Clapham Old Town, which I hope will get a Michelin star very soon, he has opened up Bistro Union on Abbeville Rd. Went their for Sunday lunch yesterday and had an awesome Aubergine starter, followed by whole roasted Chicken which I shared with my friend. Food was accompanied with some great wine and we tried very tasty organic beer before we sat down. Dessert was the kids favourite - Knickerbocker Glory ;) Highly recommend both Bistro and Trinity, you will not be disappointed.


I love the fun way everything is presented at Bistro Union. A celebration of whats good about Great British cooking, unpretentious and tasty. Reasonably priced too.


All things considered, by far the best dining experience I've had in London. Exceptional service, delicious and varied food, wonderful format - and a welcomingly stylish atmosphere. Then to top it all off, fantastic value for money. I honestly can't think of a single complaint - superb restaurant and I hope it doesn't change.


Week one seems to have gone well for this trendy new eaterie. I had the pork and apple soup liek chicken broth - great, subtle tastes and plenty of it. A huge portion of cottage pie with succulent lamb came next - the bone marrow a highlight. Very well cooked and generous portions. This place will inject new life into the rather fusty Abbeville Road 'village' - and is right opposite other newcomer Abbeville Kitchen which offers fussier fare at a slightly higher price.
