Children permitted

Children are welcome in the lounge and those under 2 get in free - though do make sure they are booked in!


The dress code in the lounge is smart casual, and they ask that men keep their shoulders covered at all times. If you are wearing a football top or rugby shirt, please make sure it's covered up. 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 includes spiced chicken, mac and cheese, curries and soup of the day - and, of course, plenty of sweet treats.

Tea, coffee, juices and fizzy drinks are all included in the self-service bar and we also offer complimentary spirits, wine and beer. For a little extra you can even toast the start of your holiday with something a little more special, such as a glass of champagne.

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