So so overall. Five casks but one wasnít pouring anything. Pretty standard keg range, with mostly macros, although I did see Dark Star Revelation on tap. Quite busy during my visit. Typical airport pricing. Adequate service. You might pick up a new rate here, but overall the pickings are slim. Still, probably the best place to have a beer at this airport.
As airport bars go (in the UK at least) this is a pretty decent one. Range is more limited and beers more expensive, not surprisingly, than a regular Spoons. However, I picked up one tick waiting for a flight and spent the rest of the time drinking Six Point Bengali Tiger from cans. Whatís not to like? Service was fine.
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.
