We liked what we had

We ate here last year before our afternoon flight and liked it so we came again, had exactly the same thing and liked it again. The club sandwich with fries and a side serving of onion rings is very tasty indeed. They don't skimp on the fillings and the onion rings are made with red onions which... read more

I had the fish and chips snack portion and was very pleased with the amount, presentation, and service for the 5 quid.

Nothing special about this place. It's overpriced as are all airport eateries. We all had breakfasts, there was a mix up with our toasts and hot drinks and one meal was stone cold. It was all resolved but not good really.

I have had the misfortune of eating at the grain loft and will definitely will not be returning any time soon! Chicken served that is past it's sell by date,beef burgers held in water for several hours before serving(poached burger anyone?) and vegetarian meals prepared with the same knives and boards as the meat dishes. When you see the prices... More

Waiting on staff were pleasant, the place wasn't very busy so we managed to get a decent seat and she came and took our order fairly quickly. Didn't have to wait long for the food, not sure how long you would have to wait if it's busy during holiday time. Food was ok but well pricey for what you get... More

I came to eat in your restaurant on 11/4 and loved every minute! I was greeted straight away by a young girl called Roxanne who was very smiley and full of energy! She took our order straight away and got it all right, explaining how we could ask her anything at any time during our visit. She apologised for being... More

On a college trip to Iceland, a group of us (all aged 17-18) decided to eat here for breakfast before our flight. Prices were expensive as they always are at airports but they customer service we received was disgraceful. When the waiter and waitress came out and started barking out "Traditional breakfast" and "Full English" they didn't wait for a... More
