Really busy Spoons in Gatwick Airport, beer range not that great but did have a couple of the Festival beers on. A nightmare to get a table as seems to be constantly heaving with drinkers or those wanting Spoons fare at Airport prices.
Convenient and might get a scoop. Think the craft offerings are better value tbh.

Fly fairly often between London and Copenhagen so always visit here to kill some time while waiting for the flight. Overall its pretty decent, some good cask choices that always include the "JDW beer festival specials" - during one such visit they were advertising choices of 3rds like other JDWís so worth checking this when you are visiting. If there is nothing to take your fancy cask wise, there is the now great selection of bottles/cans available from the likes of Sixpoint,Rogue,Goose Island, Brewdog etc. Service scores highly not because of knowledge (this is a spoons) but because there is always loads of staff behind the bar when ever I visit. Food is your standard JDW fare. Prices though for both food and drinks are more around your central London price level compared to the regional out of town spoons.

Was quietly impressed with the place to be honest. Neat and tidy on my 10th Dec 2014 visit (early before a 08.10 flight). My pint of Roosterís Yankee was in fine order and the wifeís coffee too. Usual large selection of bottled and on-tap beers that typify Spoons, just a bit more expensive because of the location. Didnít eat, plenty of staff (unusual for a Spoons).

Considering the location, not a bad place. At least the best place to get a beer when you wait for a flight. The beer isnít that exciting, but the prices are decent, considering itís an airport, and the interior is good enough.

The place to go if you have a few minutes or hours between flights at London Gatwick Airport. Rotating offering on some of their taps, so there might be a couple new scoops for you when you return. The cask ales ales I had were served at cool cellar temperature. Standard JDW fare foodwise, not bad though.

Stopped in here a few years back on a very long layover. Grab a few pints and enjoyed people watching. Canít remember the service being that great, but its an airport. Never knew it would be added to places. If your stuck waiting for a flight why not!

An alright airport pub. If you feel like you need to have one, itís good for that. But itís very crowded and noisy and the selection ainít too great. Not my (half) pint of beer.

Nice Weatherspoon at the airport. Not the best selection of beers at my visit, but then I probably had my share the last week in London. Food seems good, reasonable pricing too, for an airport that is. Recommendable if you are at Gatwick.

The Flying Horse looks very much like one of the Wetherspoonís pubs thatís been converted from a cinema or a department store although obviously it hasnít. Itís been made to look that way with art deco furnishings and fittings. Itís a bit frayed at the edges and a bit more expensive than the usual íSpoons but, as airport bars go, it has a pretty good beer selection and itís good enough for a drink and a bite to eat while waiting for your flight.
