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.

Haven't been in a few weeks and it actually got worse again. QR menu only has one choice left, lettuce salad. They still haven't bothered to fix the drinks fridge either. American First lounge in T3 was amazing compared to this. On the plus side there was no security queue with both lanes open for once.

Ive just had the lettuce dish. Its exactly what youd expect half a little gem lettuce drizzled with ceasar dressing and a handful of croutons and crispy onions to taste like. Inoffensive but BA needs to do a lot better. Either ditch food ordering via QR or do it properly.

Do like the fact that at breakfast yesterday, they had the triangular hash browns as well as the "tater tot" things.

There are some yummy new snacks in the Flounge. There are healthy shot drinks, take away vino and some new packaged snacks. Two flavours, onion bhaji and tandoor chilli. Brand is Howdah which is a social enterprise that gives a free school lunch for every pack sold.



Also mini cans (187ml) of ros. I have liberated one to take on board and will be drinking it instead of Cointreau and champagne.

Not sure the cans are take away. You'll be reviving the removing things from the lounge debate 😂

Anyway do we know if the snax and wine cans are in LGW first lounge also?
Quite keen to try them

They must be take out. They are stored next to the Whispering Angel. Who would be daft enough to pour themself a tin of unbranded (not even the grape is shown, though it says its French) vino when there are far superior wines available. I will check with a team member.

I have to say, that I tried the Whispering Angel pink wine a couple of weeks ago and found it to be quite pleasant.

​​​​​​Yep I see what you mean, by selecting a canned plonk over a nice glass of wine.
