They forgot half the order ( only 2 of us ) And I was very very unwell after the steak sandwich . Leading to an unpleasant train journey having to get up frequently . Staff not very helpful , Duck salad had a "sprinkle of duck " as the waiter said when complained about the amount of crispy duck .

We ate here for an evening meal. Whilst my wife enjoyed her meal, I did not enjoy mine at all. Found it was not very well seasoned and was not hot enough.

We ate here early in the evening, we were greeted warmly at seated promptly. However this is when the experience took a turn for the worse, even though the restaurant was virtually empty service was slow the food was dry and bland - the bits of it that turned up, our side orders were totally forgotten. There was no interest... More

I was on the restricted BLOC menu choice, but despite that it was filling and a good selection of choices. The other menu was better, but to be honest, what i had was good enough. Very busy place by nature of its location. But the staff were cheerful and efficient, the food was tasty and well cooked. A good choice... More

This place is very very busy most of the time staff are fine but clearly can't cope like the rest of Gatwick i suppose. Food was good quality and did what I expected just a shame it's so messy and disorganised

Seated very quickly and attended to in a very short space of time. Ordered the Nachos and the Guerrilla Burger, which arrived quickly and was a decent enough bite to eat. Fries served with the Burger were in very short supply so must have been waiting on a delivery..... All in all a pleasant experience.

High prices, noisy, cramped, not enough staff, and low quality food. This restaurant epitomises everything that is wrong about airport catering monopolies. They know you have nowhere else to go so the standard is just poor.
