Very poor choice of food, soup, crisps or a very poor small salad bar with buns best used as cricket balls. We left hungry and ate on the plane. This was lunch time so we will not be visiting this lounge again.

You need to understand that it is airside. After check in, after security, before you board the plane. It fills that gap. If killing time before security go to one of the hotels on site.
Anyone know the difference between the aspire lounge and the escape lounge ?
