Galleries First (Flounge) LHR: Dining menu and food options 2015

Last edit by: corporate-wage-slave
This thread gives the current catering options for the Galleries First Lounge (Flounge) in LHR Terminals 3 and 5. This lounge is open to BAEC Gold and oneworld Emerald card holders. Passengers flying BA on a First ticket can also use the Concorde Room. The catering supplier was changed on 2 May 2013 to BaxterStorey. Click here to see the former thread, which covered that turbulent period.

The T3 lounge is identical to T5 in terms of food and drink options. However there is no Concorde Room in T3 so from 18:30 hrs there is a pre-flight dining option for First travellers, see here for more details.

The current catering options in the First lounge can be found in the first post in the thread, or you can click here. Currently lounge menus are not always on display in the lounge, but this link may be your best bet to see the options.

They actually did have black pudding, I didn't know what it was though so I didn't try any.

Sorry about my scone faux pas, I'll stay in the US until I learn how things work in the rest of the world

Think we're on a new menu now? In T3 GF and the to-order menu items are:

BA Burger
Nicoise Salad (complete with a Grocers' Apostrophe in the copy)
Hoisin Duck Wrap
Artichoke Tortellini
Thai Red Curry with Chicken

No dessert!?!?

Buffet items today:

Pork Belly
Salmon and Horseradish filo parcels (replacing the fishcake)
Duck Cassoulet
Beef Chili

Usual penne and rice.

That follows on from the CCR menu, so that fits in. Not sure if the ice cream was over the page(?). I'll start the 2016 Flounge thread later today, thanks for the input.

Back page had nothing on it.

I was searching for "This page intentionally blank".

Didn't ask one of the staff. Just grabbed a biscuit and headed out as it was time to go.

What is the issue with the apostrophe? Doesn't the egg belong to the hen?

I'd be more worried about the state of an egg which had been laid by a soft boiled hen.

I did enjoy the curry last week. I'm not often needing a full meal when in GF, so it was pleasant to have the opportunity to try some of the food that gets discussed so much here.
