We did not visit the bar, only the food service facility. Overpriced. Really poor food and when we visited staff who don't care about pleasant or helpful service. We genuinely could not eat the 'sandwiches' as the bread was stale and was too chilled to...More

This was just up from the airport gate I was waiting so I decided to pop in for a glass of wine. It's got a nice atmosphere and is a nice place to pass an hour. Friendly staff too.
