The Union Tavern
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
From the outside, set on a busy traffic bridge, this looks like an archetypal JAG (Just Another Gastropub) makeover. Head through the pub to the terrace, though, and the scenery changes completely: table after table after table beneath large black umbrellas, all overlooking the slow-flowing canal. This terrace is the Grand Union’s greatest asset, to be sure.
However, the interior is also attractive, done out with post-war propaganda photographs of the catering and drinking industries. There’s enough chat-level indie din to bring in the twentysomethings, but there are couple-friendly low brown sofas in the street-level main bar area.
The beers are decent – Litovel, San Miguel and Becks Vier alongside Fuller’s ales – although there are few surprises in the cocktail or wine lists.
There are gastro-standard mains; the highlight of the food menu is the dozen mix and match tapas plates. Not such a JAG after all.
