The Grand UnionThere are several pubs dotted around town all called The Grand Union - and all of them owned by the same group, Canyon Entertainment Ltd. - set up by Adam Marshall and Adam Saword. Their six London sites are: Camden, Brixton, Twickenham, Islington, Kentish Town and Kennington. Each serves up a reliable formula of burgers and salads, beers and cocktails, in a comfy sofa-surrounded setting. The original Grand Union at 102-104 Camden Road backs onto the Grand Union Canal - hence the name, adopted by the other bars. The real highlight at this Kennington branch is a fabulous south-facing decked roof terrace taking up the entire flat roof of the pub and big enough to hold a hundred.
