Quiet evening and waiting for my delayed flight, I went to the bar and ordered the pulled pork burger and a glass of Chardonnay. I then watched as the waitress poured two different wines into a glass.... I'm really not a complainer and had a...More

Ordered scrambled eggs on toast with smoked salmon. The eggs were obviously boiled at some point in the process and were rubbery and dry. The portion was also tiny. Laying next to my "scrambled eggs" and toast was this pathetic sliver of smoked salmon, barely...More

You don't expect Fine Dining at an airport but you do expect quick service and good food if you are pushed for time. We fly from Birmingham many times each year, usually early in the morning and we always have breakfast here and find the...More

There was some fish inside the cocoon of batter, but at £13:95 I felt underwhelmed and ripped off. Giraffe restaurant (opposite) is consistently better.

We came to the restaurant with a couple of friends before our flight to Dubrovnik. We had a couple of breakfasts with drinks, which came very quickly, and the service from Laura M. was excellent, really friendly and chatty, top marks all round.

Paid nearly £13 for a pulled pork burger which had more coleslaw than pork. The pork was more like tuna. Portion was very small. My partner paid about the same for a chicken burger but swapped the bun and chips for salad. No dressing and...More
