You can’t fail to spot Foodissimo. The restaurant is slap bang in front of the departures gates for Ground Floor Departures. There are a number of other eateries and shops in this area including Smooy, Wonkandy, Calzedonia and Imaginarium.

What’s there to eat?

There’s a range of food and drink on offer including chilled draught beers, coffee, pastries and sandwiches. They also offer meal deals. It’s a popular choice amongst passengers wanting to grab something to eat and drink before charging through the security gates opposite. This also means that it can get busy during peak travel times. The place does, however, have a limited number of bar seats if you’d rather sit in and eat.
