Review on Bistro Union
Bistro Union opened in the heart of Abbeville Village in Clapham, the latest venture from the popular Trinity restaurant owner chef Adam Bryatt. The light and airy restaurant eschews a archetypal British décor, with much of the furniture from reclaimed materials and tiles from the London Underground used behind the large bar.
The kitchen's menu features British classics using impeccable fresh ingredients which are presented with genuine respect to the seasonal produce on offer. Expect starters like beer and onion soup, lobster cocktail or ham and fried eggs served in their frying pan. Main courses offer guinea fowl kiev, Cumberland sausage toad in the hole or maybe Brixham fish pie. Nostalgia rules when it comes to desserts such as knickerbocker glory, baked apple cobber and rhubarb and custard.
There is an all day bar menu that's written quirkily on a drop-down roll of brown paper and this changes daily. There is a well thought out wine list plus a variety of very English drinks with cider from Orchard Pig, beer by Freedom and spirits from Sipsmith. Diners uniquely have the opportunity of buying a bottle of spirits which will be stored in a locker behind the bar for when they next pop in. This unpretentious and welcoming bistro, like its older sibling has all the makings of a sure fire winner for Adam Bryatt.
