About Union8

The name reflects our goal – to become the hub and focal point of our community & for those from further afield! We also chose it because of our location (union of roads) and our belief as to what a truly local restaurant should be (union of people).

We are interested in achieving prominence based on consistency & quality rather than publicity. The seasonal dishes are modern & well-balanced, with just a few ingredients. The wine list is adventurous and keenly priced, and the service is professional while appearing casual and friendly. All of which can be enjoyed in a stylish contemporary space.

Great menu with beautifully cooked food. Really disappointed that so much of the menu was not available at the time. Some of the seats inside the restaurant are more suited to outdoors and are not that comfortable. Other seats (GPlan 70s chairs?) are a bit old and rickety. For the prices, all the seating should be more comfortable. Overall, it's really nice and enjoyable though.

We had a very enjoyable time at Union 8 on New Years Day all of the food was delicious, the staff are very friendly and professional and we loved the music! The only negative is I feel there should be a vegetable or potato dish included with the main courses. I ordered the coq au vin which was to come with potatoe dumplings. I was imagining polish style dumplings so didn’t add a side to my order but the dumplings were like little marbles so that was a bit disappointing as they wouldn’t fill a mouse-I had to steal fries from my daughter! This however would not put me off going back.

Food was lovely and tasty but the service was awful. We had to call the waiter/waitress each time and took ages to get their attention. It appears they were understaffed yesterday and it wasn’t fair on them. Also their manners weren’t very good. No please or thank you and not very friendly.

Very thus host who treated us as if we were in her debt. Very poor. I doubt anything will be done about it as it seems like she owns the place. Definitely will not recommend to any friends, family or work colleagues.

We were the first of the Christmas lunch diners a table of 5 Service was poor - one person had to ask 3 times for a glass of wine , one dessert didn't appear - had to ask for it The turkey and ham was overcooked & swimming in thin gravy Beef ribs - some were soft and some were overcooked also. Decorations were tacky, noise levels were high

Absolute delightful place to dine in. Our work department had the Christmas lunch at Union 8. It was fantastic and very enjoyable. Such incredible quality food and very attentive staff. The plates were served very hot and also on time. The staff were very efficient and friendly. Very organized. The place had a lovely Christmas atmosphere and you could feel really cosy. They also put decorations over our classy table with Christmas crackers. We couldn't ask for more! We will definitively go back again!

Service was a little slow but it was busy and the servers were very friendly and helpful. Starters were ok, venison for mains came out a little cold but tasted lovely. Dessert was beautiful. Overall was nice but a bit overpriced for what it was.

We had a lovely meal, the food was delicious. The restaurant has a really nice ambience especially with the Christmas decorations. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was a bit slow coming out particularly the starter, and the live music was quite loud, so made it hard to hear what friends were saying unless they were right next to you but overall a very nice experience and would highly recommend

I had a lovely lunch here with my husband and sister yesterday. The food choices are all great, so much so that I definitely have to come back to try a few more dishes because there were so many delicious sounding options! The staff are warm and friendly and the decor is lovely with a lot of space between tables so it doesn't feel crowded. Will definitely be back for lunch and can't wait to check out the brunch and dinner menus as well!

Lovely waiting staff and fabulous food! Great buzz, although a little noisy for my party. Recommended by a family member and I can see why she likes it. I’d definitely come back.
