Normally have breakfast here before flying off to the alps. Got here early in the morning and it was shut. Disappointed as love their egg, bacon bagel. Well hope it reopens for March trip. Really enjoy. I am sure by now it has reopened.

This is a busy outlet which seems to work like clockwork! Dined here a few times whilst waiting for flights. Food has been consistently good (bacon sandwich to die for!) and served swiftly and efficiently. Sometimes hard to get a seat, but patience is a...More

I've only ever had a drink here, and must try the food one day, as the menu looks good. It's a captive market here - a large gin and tonic cost me £9.25, whereas in my pub in the Isle of Man it would be...More
