Lunch at Union Jacks ♥

Last week I went for a work lunch at Union Jacks in Holborn. It was a really hot, sunny day and we all sat under a parasol outside. I've never been to Union Jacks before and I really enjoyed my visit! The decor for one is amazing - think old school diner meets grungy canteen, with a bit of graffiti chic thrown in!






I had a huge plate of fish and chips, which was delicious and a side of yummy creamed spinach. The pudding was amazing - snickers ice cream!! It is probably my fave ice cream to date - vanilla with melted snickers swirled through it so you get bits of sweet caramel and salty peanuts as you chomp through it! Yum. I didn't take any photos of the food unfortunately as I wolfed it down, but I did manage to get a pic of the pretty Damson Gin Fizz cocktail I washed my lunch down with! Complete with fun straw :-)




I'd definitely recommend Union Jacks for food if you ever come across one. It's really good value, the atmosphere is fun and relaxed and the decor is old school cool!

Where's your favourite place to eat?

  1. This sounds right up my street, simple food made really well! Can't beat that! And polkadot straws?! All over that like jam on scones. Only now I feel like I have to search for some online and buy them . . . argh!

  3. Ooh this looks like a fun place! The cocktail looks amazing! :) I think my favourite restaurant changes on a weekly basis, but at the moment it's probably Wahaca! I really want to try Shake Shack and Five Guys in Covent Garden soon...xx

  4. I've never heard of Union Jacks, but seems I might have to add it to my list. I am currently obsessed with eating cadburys caramel with peanut butter on top, so this ice cream seems the next logical step.
