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

Last edit by: KARFA
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.

Thanks. That is a comfort tbh as the hotel brekkie doesn't look great!

Not sure I can get by without my pastries... so I'll just have to make do with having a party instead I'll just make sure I have a couple of mamosas

So long as you don't have any other guests of course. I usually pop outside to meet them and guest them in.

I’m not sure if I’m allowed to write the current menu/wifi password here, but while there this morning I was surprised to overhear quite a few people struggling to understand and spell it when they asked a staff member for the code.

I was pleased to see the new water taps installed, for a while it was almost impossible to get water in the lounge after they took the Harrogate spring bottles away.

Doesn't sound as appetising as the menu in the CX or QF lounges.

It's not the wifi password, I don't think there is one now, I've not been asked one when I've connected for a while.
Is it still that hot food item popular in the UK and had a song about it one world cup? It's a shame it's just the password and not actually on the menu.
