I was fortunate enough to have time to spare whilst on route to Sweden. A good opportunity I thought to visit Gatwick South Terminal Airside’s very large Pret A Manger.
On entering the unit it is immediately obvious that this a major refuelling for a large number of PAX (Airport speak for passengers) I wasn’t about to miss out so I selected an Egg Salad Sandwich, a ‘Five Berry Bowl’ (for health!), & a can of Pret Ginger Beer. At the counter I completed the order by asking for a Hazelnut Latte @£2.45 which was swiftly produced. My order totalled £8.09
I took the silver tray handed to me loaded with my goodies and found a table with a mains socket… it wasn’t just me that needed recharging.
The food was really good and the coffee tasted nice though the first sip was a sweetness shock as I’d forgotten what I had asked for.
In hindsight I should have saved 30p and had a regular Latte.
I can recommend the 5 fruit Joghurt Cereal thingy for sure.
Gatwick Airport free Wi-Fi was available and there was an all important flight information screen on view. The only thing I was underwhelmed with was the tinned background music which was little better than the muffled airport announcements.
Apart from the speedy service I also noted how efficient the Staff were in respect of the cleanliness of the whole unit.
Overall I greatly appreciated the experience Pret A Manger offered at Gatwick and depending how hungry I am next time I’m at Gatwick I may return here rather than The Large Costa Coffee on the other side of the escalators.
