Another of those places that are better than average but its not worth very good, do wish there was a good button!!!
Got there about 06.30 for breakfast and joined a queue of about 20 people, luckily as there was just two of us we got seated fairly quickly, we were sat on the side that faces the toilets, and realised that you could just walk in between the tables and plants there, and quite a few people were doing that, you know the type " I'm not waiting in a queue, Im gonna go in the side, sod everyone whose queuing"
Anyway breakfast was good and tasty, and served quickly, the coffee was good as always, and Mrs C said her fresh squeezed orange was delicious, pricier than usual but heyho!! And no didn't have a beer, personal opinion but beer with breakfast is wrong!!

Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback from your visit to us. We are always looking at ways to manage queues more efficiently, so it is fair and speedy for everyone,however, as you mention, there will always be some that slip through the gaps. Glad to hear the breakfast was to your liking and that the OJ went down well. Thanks again.

The beer and cider is cold and refreshing, but the food is poor, it is never hot nor fresh. Shame really as spoons usually does serve some good pub grub.

Popped in here for dinner before flight. Airport very busy due to air traffic strike and delayed flights so was a big queue to get a table, however this went down quickly. Staff friendly helpful. Food is always really good and comes out very quick. Always our first choice when flying from the north terminal.
