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.

Still no sign of Lanson rose and no replacement/alternative pink fizz either. At least EDI had pink prosecco this morning.

But, those pies......chicken ham and mushroom today 😋

First time through here in 3 years and really a quick visit coming off CX onto BA to DUB. I was hungry and pleasantly surprised with the food on offer. It was very very busy but also Friday afternoon.

Not sure what the problem is, I can clearly see there are some scuba diver's legs in the fridge.

Which will cause multiple complaints when they are 'enhanced away'

Does anyone know what the current options are for app orders in the flounge? Last time I was there they had some fairly good small curry dishes/salads.

My post, 787, about a month ago, shows what was on offer then food wise. Practically nothing that wasn't available in a similar form at the buffets.

Thanks Xenole. I had a couple of the tikka thighs which I thought were very good at least in comparison to the usual 'spread'. Just wondering if those are still there now or if there is a new spread?

At breakfast time there are a couple of options on the appp that aren't on the buffet. Pancakes, kippers and toast I think.

I'm not sure if this is noted elsewhere, but want to mention here that cognac is available at the Flounge bar upon request. It isn't on the self-service bar or on the app, but at I asked the bartender and she pulled out a bottle of Remy VSOP. So, that's good to know! Now they just need to bring cognac back onboard in CW...

I'm an animal lover and don't even kill bugs if I can relocate them beyond the house, but this probably isn't a good sign on the Flounge terrace...
