With such a high demand this could be a shining star of British catering! Took ages to order in the queue. Then when the food came, tired and unexceptional. Also, oddly small portions (if you're serving pre-prepared, overcooked food, at least give us lots of...More

Had steak and chips and mac and cheese. Both awful, steak has to be the worst I’ve had ever! Dry burnt to death and no garlic butter on as described in menu, chips dry, really really bad!!!!!

Went for breakfast whilst waiting for flight. First problem the queue or should I say lack of any organised queue. The staff seem to serve whoever they like and look as though they couldn't care less except the young lad who brought the food to...More

I reviewed this establishment last year, it wasn't great but just about passable. I think it's symptomatic of most airport establishments and I travel frequently. Captive audiences, can charge pretty much what they want and... More
