As above + several of trains an hour all through the day and most of the evening.

Cab would be £20-30 depending on private hire vs. black cab.

Even if there are five of you it would probably be as easy and cheap to take the train rather than a cab - particularly in evening rush hour when it could take up to an hour to get to the airport by car (depending on which one you get the train to the airport can be as quick as 16 minutes and 'slow' as 28 minutes).
