Popped in with the wife for our pre flight meal During a quiet lunchtime service waited to be seated & all the 4 person booths were either taken up with one person or couples or reserved. We were sat on a wobbly table for 2 in a bit of a thoroughfare. We asked if we could sit army an empty... More

Came here for breakfast before waiting for an early morning flight. Pretty standard J D Wetherspoon menu with inflated airport prices - around £6 for a bacon roll if I remember correctly.. Busy but pretty easy to find a table. The one major plus point was free glasses of water.

Service is good bearing in mind its busy even at 0830 at T5. Food arrived quickly. The hash brown was soggy and the sausage with virtually no flavour. I suppose with a captive market the service standards slip. Wouldn't eat here again.

This is a great bar/ diner in Heathrow Terminal 5 . The quality of the food is very good considering how busy it is. As a Wetherspoons the prices are very reasonable for drink as well as food. Waiters are always running around to keep up with demand but the system seems to work . Not very swish but heyho... More

I like this place cause it's different from all other restaurant in the airport. Not so far from the gates. Good beer and good food, that's enough. See you soon!

I've been to many Spoons in my time. This one takes the prize for the worst service ever! Staff were rude, inconsiderate and just slow. At one time there were four or five staff standing about...all I wanted was serving! Get down there Mr Martin and see for yourself

The Crown Rivers pub was recommended to us by someone who works in Heathrow's T5 as the best and most popular place to have a decent meal before boarding an airplane (and being subjected to airplane "food"). We were seated promptly, our order was correctly taken, and our food was shortly brought out to our table, and served at the... More

We connected between Madrid and Manchester and stopped off for a quick drink and food so time was precious. It took a while to get someone's attention to place the order. The hot food came 10 minutes before the drinks. The girl serving apologised profusely but it wasn't her fault. It was just not organised well enough to cope with... More

Had lunch for 6 people recently on way to Milan. Both drinks and food were well priced and service was quick and friendly. Especially recommend the club sandwich that came with fries and was enough for 2 people to share.
