Children permitted

Children are welcome in the lounge. Those under 2 get in free, but you must make sure to ring the lounge and book them a space.


The dress code in the lounge is smart casual - so no sports attire, football tops or rugby shirts. If you are wearing one, make sure it's covered. You should avoid wearing any clothing with slogans that might cause offence, hen or stag attire, or shorts above the knee. Fancy dress, onesies, pyjamas, personalised items or any other items that may cause offence to other lounge users are not allowed either.

Food and drink

The food is not to be missed - the best part is it's included in the price. Because it's a buffet, you can fill up your plate as many times as you like. They're all prepared using the very best ingredients and are made fresh throughout the day.

If you're travelling in the morning, you'll find continental breakfast treats like cereals, fruit, croissants and rolls. You can also help yourself to a breakfast buffet including sausages, and beans. Lunch and dinner include spiced chicken, mac and cheese, curries and soup of the day - and, of course, plenty of sweet treats.

There are options for vegetarian and gluten-free diets, the lounge advises you speak to a member of staff about these when you arrive.

The complimentary bar is stocked with your favourite wines, beers and spirits, as well as tea, coffee, juices and soft drinks.

Just keep in mind you'll only be allowed entry to the lounge during the time you booked, as there may not be space.

Entertainment facilities

Kick back in a comfy chair and soak up some peace and quiet before your flight. You'll find plenty to keep you entertained, from newspapers and magazines, to free wifi and TVs.

Disabled facilities

The lounge is equipped with disabled facilities.

Business facilities

You'll find everything you need from free Wi-Fi access, printers, scanners, handy work spaces, and several power points for those who just want to browse on their own machines.
