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.

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

Wanted a decent breakfast before a mid morning flight and the Tin Goose was the first eatery we saw in the terminal. They were pretty busy and so the service was not especially fast. The full english looked nice and was perfectly edible, but for the price was basic and not very hot. Would probably keep going and find an... More

14:00, starving. Closest place to me that looked decent was the tin goose. I figured, looks good, let's try it. 10mins before I was seated. Had to probe a waitress eventually for some service. Menu choice sucks, ordered a burger, cheese was a quid extra. Arrived withing 15 mins. Sufficient meat on the burger. Food: barely any cheese, relish was... More

Seriously believe the reviews. Sit down and enjoy a nice warm pint if you like, but DO NOT have food unless it's a sealed bag of crisps!! I have just been made £12.95 for a burger and fries which was completely inedible but only marginally warmer that the beer.. Seriously appalling in every way, the roll and the 'meat' was... More

Starving before a flight this looked attractive enough. Nice decor and plenty of people sitting inside. Ordered the roast Dinner. Shocking quality. Barely warm, raw vegetables, grey meat. Told the waitress when she picked up the plates. She looked sheepish but that was it. Probably hears it several times a day I guess. Would go back again for the nice... More

I looked at the reviews after I had eaten there for the third time. I can't share the generally negative tone. On the most recent occasion (March 2014) I had grilled salmon, a large glass of wine and a coffee for £20. Not cheap; but not that expensive. Quality and service was fine. I'll eat there again.

6pm on a Monday evening and we needed a reasonable meal before an 8:40 3-hour flight. We should have learned from our experience last year. The Tin Goose is an expensive airside bar which does production-line food from pre-packaged produce. I had a burger which was passable (I'm not that much a fussy eater) and my wife ordered the "Roast... More

We passed through here 31st Jan 2014. Got a good corner seat for wheelchair access. Looked at menu but very little choice I ordered a coronation chicken sandwich on granary roll. The roll was the biggest part of it as there was very little filling.All for £7.50 total disgrace. The beefburger was ok though. Too pricey and too skimpy on... More

My girlfriend and I visited The Tin Goose recently and weren't hugely impressed. The staff were friendly enough and we didn't have to wait for a table. The atmosphere was nice and cosy. My starter of chicken liver parfait was nice, but it wasn't anything special, and instead of being served with some nice crusty bread was served with ordinary... More
