Polite and swift service, good selection of ales but not as many as the flying Horse on the tarmac side.

Sometimes the tables can take a while to be cleaned and you may have to move old plates and glasses before settling down.

Good for a pint or 2 while your flight is being prepared.

Just had a lovely brekkie in here.
Busy as you would expect from airport spoons.
Couldnt face a guinness this early,but plenty drinking this time of day.
Service good,nice hot staff.

Pretty much what you would expect from an airport Wetherspoons - decent beer and (relatively) reasonable prices, but no character... However, they do usually stock an ale from the local W J King Brewery (currently 2.75), and the bar staff seem more clued-up and friendly than one might expect. It should also be noted that this pub 'moved' in 2007 from its original site a short distance away in Gatwick's land-side 'shopping village'.

The VI has had a make-over quite recently, now pretty well unrecognisabe from the old boozer. Now a different layout and far more modern interior - all high, square wooden tables, blocks of bold colours on the wall, etc. Looks pleasant and welcoming enough, if slightly too bright.

In any Airport pub you will probably never escape the sense that you are only one step away from the Departure Lounge, it's unavoidable with the transient nature of the clientele. However, I think that this is still probably the best option in this part of Gatwick. Everyone knows the Wetherspoons formula, and the VI sticks to it. I found the service very friendly and attentative, they seem to cope remarkably well (and keep good humour) with the huge turnover of customers, most of whom were in seriously bad moods over their delayed flights.....

There were six real Ales on, and my pint of Courage Directors was very fresh. All in all a decent enough place to while away and hour or twenty as you wait for your flight or missing baggage.
