Children permitted

Children are welcome in the lounge and those under 3 get in free - though do make sure they are booked in! Those 16 and over will need to pay the adult price.


The dress code in the lounge is smart casual - so no sports kits, hair in rollers, clothing with offensive slogans, hats/caps or fancy dress. The lounge asks that men ensure their shoulders are covered and women's midriffs and upper thighs are too. If they deem your clothing unsuitable they can refuse entry, without a refund.

Food and drink

It doesn't matter what time of day you visit, there'll be a selection of delicious food and drink available at any time. If you're travelling in the morning, you'll find continental breakfast treats including cereals, fruit, croissants and pastries. You can also enjoy a selection of traditional hot items including sausages, bacon and beans. From lunchtime onwards a range of pastas and sauces are accompanied by freshly baked bread and a selection of desserts.

Tea, coffee, juices and fizzy drinks are all included in the self-service bar and we also offer complimentary spirits, wine and beer. For a little extra you can even toast the start of your holiday with something a little more special, such as a glass of champagne.

Just keep in mind you'll only be allowed entry to the lounge during the time you booked, as there may not be space.
