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. (Last visited 30 April 2014).

Ok cosy pub at the airport. One of to Deasent waterholes at airside.6 casks and 8 taps. 2 casks not the usual suspects. 10 boring bottles.

Only reasonably priced pub in the airport, selection is really nothing to even worth mentioning. They have about 5 cask ales and the rest is all commercial beers.

This big airport pub is a fairly busy place. The service is efficient, though, so they manage to keep. They have 5-6 casks and some macro taps. You might as well spend your time here while waiting at the airport.
