Arrived at 8am thought we'd go & get a coffee & maybe something to eat. Well you'll be lucky, full of young men with pints all very jolly, how they are allowed onto the plane no idea! Not a free table in sight. So settled for a takeaway coffee, much cheaper than the 'boutique' like places that North terminal Gatwick... More

For a big chain, the eggs royale are at par with some of the upmarket restaurants I've eaten in. Quick service and plenty of staff. Great start to our Netherlands trip :)

We stopped in this Wetherspoons at 04.00hrs. Not many about so how did my lady end up with cold poridge. We had to send it back. We got a table visit from the shift manager who asked if the breakfast was ok. A silly question since he knew the poridge was being reheated. Later towards the end of my breakfast... More

it pretty average food for what you pay. there are always hidden extras. you ask a portion of toast, and get one slice Why bother really, it never ever changes, get the in get as much out of them and get then out again, and take as much money of them as possible.

last english breakfast before returning to Italy. pity about the burnt sausages, the rest of the fry-up was good, very good quick and friendly service. of course is more expensive than in High street, but we all know that in airports everything is dearer....

We had breakfast here 2 weeks ago on our way to Gran Canaria. I'm always impressed with Wetherspoons inivative approach but they have excelled themselves here! We sat in the area away from the actual 'pub' and were welcomed by an older gentleman, well dressed and very smart and very polite. He sat us down and ensured we were happy... More

It's always shocking to pay over £9 for a breakfast that is £4.99 in my local Wethys, but it's an airport. Despite the busy times, service was quick, food was hot and refills on coffee. Holiday treat that I would not pay on the high street.

Thank N9eav
