Bistro Union is situated on the very cosy street, Abbeville Road in Clapham, and it is run by the team behind Trinity (often mentioned on this blog) and head chef Adam Byatt. Both Gaby and I had high expectations, but were seriously impressed.
The interior is simple with lots of old details and we found it very charming. The menu looks like an old school notebook and offers fabulous treats for not much money at all. We decided to try quite a few of the snacks to make up our meal but we are definitely coming back for a full three-course meal.
Gaby and I both really enjoyed Bistro Union and we will definitely be back soon. The food was gorgeous and we liked all the little details in presentation. It is probably the most recession-friendly restaurant for its guests too, as the prices are very modest without compromising on the produce. To illustrate this, I can tell you that our bill came to only £39 for the two of us, including everything above, a soft drink, a glass of wine, a coffee and service charge. Seriously good value for money.
