Where to eat at UK Manchester Airport (or near it!)

Hi, we are staying at SAS Hotel for an early morning flight to las Vegas..(just me and wife!)

We've stayed at the SAS before and tried their 'bar/restaurant' and paid about £35 for 2 x burgers and 'fries' and diet coke...just awful!

Can anyone recommend any other pubs/restaurants within either walking or short tax ride of Manchester airport that serve reasonable food (not Burger King!) - ie a pizza restaurant, etc?

if not, then its back to eating burger and chips at the SAS Hotel!

there were plenty of places to eat at a reasonable cost airside in terminal 2. we checked in the night before and avoided the morning crush so just had to negotiate the security line ( 20 minutes) and were able to have a relatively unrushed breakfast.

If you want to escape the "airport hotel feel" you could escape to Hale village which is about 4 miles from the airport.

There's a variety of restaurants along Ashley Road. You'll find pretty much every style : Italian, Chinese, Thai, Amerian, Indian.

Hope that helps

There is a nice hotel called the Etrop Grange on Thorley Lane just around the corner from the airport. Literally a few minutes. It has a lovely menu. We went a few weeks ago for a birthday and had the best Shepherds Pie going!

There are Burger King, McDonalds, Harry Ramsdens, and sandwich/salad bars and restaurants all upstairs in Terminal One before you go through Passport Control.

Terminal two doesnt seem to have as many places to eat as Terminal One.

I hope this helps. x
