In a ‘world of escapism’ guests can start their journey in a restaurant inspired by international travel, passing through a ‘check-in’ desk before descending to ‘passport control’ and the bar in the ‘departure lounge’. The dining area itself includes a real Cessna aircraft hanging from the ceiling and private dining alcoves using seats from first class aircraft cabins.Once seated your next destination is the food area giving you the opportunity to interact with five-star chefs to design bespoke dishes, cooked fresh to order, all for one set price. Customers can stick to just one type of cuisine or concoct a combination unique to their taste, as well as helping themselves to the brand’s famous buffet of ready-made delights.

The place is a great way to experiment with exotic foods. However it does tend to get boring if you go more than once. I have been a number of times because of invites by parties and friends and not once have I seen the type of food change. It remains the same. Furthermore I have witnessed the food being... More

Thank you very much for your review. We were disappointed to read that you didn't enjoy your experience with us. We try our best to seat our disabled customers in a suitable seating area, so we were upset that they didn't feel they were in a comfortable area. Did you bring this to the attention of a member of staff... More

Date night ended here for food.. The high light was the cocktail menu.. Reasonably priced and the ones I tried were lovley. Food has been better there but not terrible. Lots cooked fresh in front of you. Lots of pudding choices at the end although pancakes a little crappy. Servies not brilliant but that's due to there not being enough... More

I came here for a late valentines lunch with my boyfriend. I messed up my booking however they still gave us a table which was good. It's a cool set up; as you enter you're effectively checking in then waiting in departures, the decor is like an airport which is cool. Then the eating area is the flight and the... More

Had better quality food in an NHS hospital. Food was of very poor quality on every level, with the Chinese and Indian counters being the worst. This was closely followed by the Mongolian food counter which had both unrefrigerated raw chicken and beef for the customers to put on there plates and have cooked in front of them. Which to...

Booked this restaurant for a birthday lunch for my 16 year old daughter and was pleasantly surprised after reading some of the reviews. We were quickly seated and the waitress bought us drinks and told us how things worked. The restaurant itself is huge and you need to keep your eyes peeled for people going in every direction!

The title says it all. If you want a lot of very average food for a low price, this place ticks those boxes. It's not for me but people seem to like it. Not sure why. The interior is pretty tacky and you'll be lucky to flag down a server to order drinks. I wouldn't choose to go back.
