Union Social at The Gantry


Situated on The Gantry's first floor, the hotel’s main dining spot is Union Social. Boasting floor to ceiling wraparound windows which lead out onto a sun-drenched terrace, Union Social is the ideal spot for lunch and dinner in East London, decked out with funky artwork from local art hotspot Jealous Gallery, and brimming with green foliage and plants bringing the outside in.

The food offering at Union Social is a relaxed all-day menu with a global edge, reflective of London’s dynamic food scene. Small plates include pan fried scallops, Jerusalem artichoke purée and crispy onion and homemade Portuguese style salt cod fritters while larger plates range from the Gantry Burgster with rustic fries, Dorset crab and prawn bisque tagliatelle, and shoulder of lamb, pearl barley with fresh spring greens. A menu of healthy salads packed full of grains are light enough for guests looking for a quick lunch or mid-afternoon snack, and ideal for laptop-toting professionals working from the venue.

Guests can enjoy a cocktail or two on Union Social’s terrace, complete with open air fire pits, or pop over to the sparkling bar Coupe for a glass of English sparkling wine and a selection of delectable bar snacks.
