Description: Start your holiday with a Bacon Butty or the famous Bloody Mary hangover-cure at The Tin Goose in Heathrow Airport Terminal 1, overlooking the planes and offering a haven from the stress of a busy airport terminal. Geronimo's first airport site, named after the first all-metal aeroplane, The Tin Goose evokes memories of travel in the 30's and 40's with antique trunks used as tables, port holes, retro burnt-orange velvet banquettes and binoculars for watching the planes land. The menu boasts an all-day English breakfast, freshly-made sandwiches, fish and chips, Charcuterie platter and more. The char-grilled prime beef burger with all the trimmings is also a firm favourite. Whether a single traveller, group or family, the Goose is ideal for relaxing and unwinding before boarding your plane. There is no better way to begin your holiday, so make sure The Tin Goose is the first stop on your itinerary.

20 minutes ago I walked OUT of this shocking establishment . I went in, grabbed a menu and a seat as instructed by the stand at the front of the restaurant. Place looked lovely but when I pulled out the chair to sit on it was covered in black dirt and the one opposite was ripped and looked like it... More

The burger was SO over cooked it was inedible. I sent it back. They refused to cook it any other way. I asked to replace it with Fish'n'Chips. They insisted that I pay the difference. The fish never came before I had to leave for my flight. Luckily, they were willing to refund the price of the burger, but the... More

I had a connecting flight and needed to grab myself some breakfast while waiting. It's a good job I had plenty of time as the service was very slow and when the waiter arrived he was very rude, regardless of the quite restaurant and the social time of day. The food was good when it arrived but nothing special. Next... More

The Tin Goose is not as dedicated to the presentation of real ales as the Wetherspoon pubs (including its Heathrow branches). After last and this year's visits of the Campaign for Real Ale's Great British Beer Festival in early August, the Goose's tasting tray offer (three third-pint glasses with English cask ales) sounded tempting to me. But they never had... More

The Tin Goose although not outstanding is a good place to refuel after a flight. The selection of food is good and I enjoyed my meal. The service was excellent and price especially for an airport are reasonable.

They've tried to emulate Huxley's in T5, but failed miserably. Don't even bother. High prices, low quality. Full breakfast = lots of (cold) beans, a sausage, a slice of bacon, a badly fried egg and 2 pieces of toast...

Pub looks great & in a prime location in Heathrow T1. On our visit the service was slow and clumsy, with only one fella behind the bar. Food was OK but nothing special for the price. Great decor and very comfy, shame the service lets it down.

I walked into tin goose seeing the eclectic decor which stood out amongst the waves of amenities that take over every airport. I was seated almost immediately, which was expected as the place was empty on this morning, and an order placed very soon after. My eggs Benedict arrived with very well done eggs and a muffin that was a... More

Prime position in Terminal1, Heathrow. Good atmosphere. Drinks only, you sit left hand side , the window side is for Diners. So, we lunched. It was so nearly good, but everything was - not hot - and had obviously been lying in heaters keeping lukewarm. My Ham, Egg and Chips, even the egg appeared to be recycled. The portions were... More

Starts with horrible service and deteriorates from there! You would think they get the idea that people are in a rush. Our server did not get it despite our request for speedy service. The food was just ok but again the service was awful. We were finished with our lunch when our side order of potatoes showed up. We requested... More
