Relax whilst eating

Shop, eat or drink at Leeds airport

The Food Village is just the places to relax and enjoy a bite to eat. Burger King is ideal for those on a tight schedule with The Danby Bar, Cafe Bar and Cafe Ritazza offering sandwiches, paninis, flatbreads and salads if that is more to your taste. Getting a good meal inside you is especially important if you are nervous and especially so if you are planning on a tipple or two when aboard the aircraft.
