With a bit of time on your hands between check-in and boarding, you may well want to settle down for tasty bite to eat. Or you may have a few hungry little mouths to feed before the next stage of your journey.

At Gatwick Airport you’ll find something for everyone, whether you want to grab a quick snack or sit down to wine and dine.

Pick up a premium coffee, freshly squeezed juices and snacks from the Coffee-Bike; discover nutritious salads, wraps and a wide range of vegan and vegetarian options at Pure; or tackle a taco or two at Tortilla.

There are also several pubs and bars serving everything from hearty breakfasts through to pub classics, craft gins and traditional ales. Why not check out the Nicholas Culpepper Pub & Dining, named after the 17th-century English botanist and physician, who was born less than two miles from the end of Gatwick Airport’s runway. You’ll find it before Security in the North Terminal.

For a taste of Asia, head to Wagamama and some nourishing noodles, tasty grills and crisp cold beers. Or for authentic pizzas and rustic pasta dishes, it’s got to be Jamie’s Italian.
