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

FlyerTalk Forums Expert How-Tos and Guides
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.

The lemon and herb chicken thighs with pickled cabbage and sriracha mayo with a generous pour of a SA Chardonnay. Nice pre-flight snack

Probably ditched as one of the easiest "take away" items - the crisps will be in bowls next !!

Hoping the Ice Cream Tubs return soon.

I see you also tweeted this to BA. Did they respond?

Also spotted one of these last week in the “outdoor” area at the top of the emergency exit stairs. Was too quick for me to take a photo though. Good effort!

I'll be heading back there a couple of times next month to sample it again (and also for other reasons)...
and at Gatwick first lounge today…. Plenty of Lanson Rosé.

Ooh... I must change some of my bookings from LHR to LGW then.

I do like the LGW GF lounge though.

Current offering in GF T3.











Also the lounge has been undergoing a refresh recently with lots of new furniture. This is the part near the buffet. They actually have some decent tables to work on!

It looks perfectly fine to me. What time of day was it?

I'm off to BUD next month and will be in there early. Looking forward to my breakfast (obviously without the tomatoes and black pudding).

Personally, I'd be using the CX lounge!

Been there, wasn't really impressed, especially at breakfast time.

I like the breakfasts in GF, sorry. Each to their own.
