    SatisfactoryUp a lift to get to the lounge. Modern interior with windows to the run way. Coffee was OK. Food looked below average - full English with some croissants. Limited seating area.

    Needs ImprovementLooks great when you first enter - it's only 6 months old. Food is pretty gross, none of the 3 computers work, slow wifi.
