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.

This looks fantastic, things are really improving in GF!

The buffet options are similar to those shown. The order menu, which I need to update here when I get a moment, is shared with the CCR lounge menu, not the dining menu (so no steak for you!) - that's in the relevant CCR dining Dashboard thread, if it's not on the front page as it often is.

This was taken on the first day it came out (note I had to get a hold of the lounge manager to even get this available for me to see!!).

Just to add also, pork belly is back on the buffet. There were some salmon filo parcel things too but they were disgusting.

Ohhhhh Sri Lanka now. There's another hundred countries to work through but North Korea might be skipped. Iranian will be back on the menu.

Worryingly no Tattinger in the lounge. Substitute is okay.

I just passed through and the Ros has been replaced with Henriot. RIP Taittinger.

The Champagnes can change from time to time, presumably due to supply. Sometimes the substitutes are of higher quality rather than lower.

I wouldn't call Henriot higher quality. It was disgusting. Given the shift to Henriot onboard I wouldn't be surprised if it stayed in the lounge...

Henriot Rose is surprisingly quite tasty!

What's the gin situation in GF now? I expected Tanqueray Ten and there's only Gordon's and Bombay

I think as rule there should only ever have been Bombay and Gordon's in GF, specific promotions aside. As a standard the Tanqueray is only supposed to be available in the CCR.
