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.

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.

Probably the best place to be while waiting for a plane at Gatwick Airport. Easy to find on the first floor at the airside of the South Terminal. Bought a sample tray with three of five available festival ales. For food I had the Mexican food dish which could easily be the best food option at the Wetherspoonís pubs this season. Service was quite alright. With a direct Norwegian plane between TromsÝ and London Gatwick Iíll visit this pub a few more times this year, I guess (Visited on my northbound journey, 10.04.2013).

Located in LGW south terminal on the upper level, the Flying Horse has been around for about 5 years.
Last visit in Jan í12, I donít get to the lesser London airports too often but whenever Iíve been here itís been pretty busy and this visit was no exception even at 11am, due to myself and fellow Quins fans making our way to Galway for some European cup action.
Ordinarily itís the usual Spoons dull atmosphere of people just killing time - although on this sporting occasion it was quite lively.
Beer range is pretty average for a Spoons with 2 or 3 guests above and beyond the stock range - but lets not gripe too much, the quality of the cask beer here hasnít let me down thus far and you might pick up a new rate.
Airport prices but service has always been pretty good here for a Spoons.
An adequate time killer!
