No bubbly available, no prosecco, no sauvignon blanc, only 1 choice of white wine, limited newspapers, no bread. Not good considering what they charge.

We often use this lounge (using a members card) and find it to have good food and a lovely bar. All the staff are amazing with courtesy to boot. Well recommended.
