I visited this bar and also “the Beehive” this week, and noticed some negative changes compared to previous visit (last year): The selection of real ales was reduced to only 4 – 5 types of rather boring ales; If I remember correctly these were “Old speckled hen”, “London pride”, “Bombardier”, “Young’s Special”, “Doombar”, + one sold out. Nothing wrong said about these ales individually, but they don’t vary too much in taste. And there were no guest ales on tap. All these ale types have all been well established for many years, except Doombar, and I find it strange that this ordinary cask ale from Cornwall now seems to have been spread out all over UK. I looked forward to taste some local guest ales, but left the place in a disappointed mood after a pint of the boring Doombar at the price of pound 4,20.
How can the local breweries survive when the business is totally controlled by the big distributor chains?

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.

One of the better airport 'spoons in my opinion.

Have used this place every time I have flown from this terminal at Gatwick.

Again like the other airport 'spoons the prices are hiked up but there's always a good selection of ales on.

One of the best things about British airports is you might get a Wetherspoon in one. The flight out to Marseille was very civilised with a good value meal and a couple of decent beers. The selection isn't as good as in Stansted, and they have an awkward policy of having a greeter at the entrance which confuses people into asking her which table they can sit at, but it's still the best way to wait for a plane. The flight back from Marseille was a bit more stressful as all that is available in that airport is expensive 1664 and cold cheese rolls or pizza eaten out in the public area rather than in a cosy pub like atmosphere.
