There is a wide choice of cafes, bars and restaurants is available in Terminal 5, with options available that’ll suit a variety of tastes and budgets, whether you just want a quick drink or a full sit-down meal. There are limited options before security, with most places to eat and drink being located airside.
Before security you’ll find a Café Nero, perfect for a quick pit stop to grab a coffee and a cake or sandwich. If you’d like a proper meal, then Carcluccio’s serves up modern Italian food, and if you’d just like a relaxed drink and maybe a bite to eat, then you can head to the 5 Tuns pub.
Once through security, there’s a wide choice. For a coffee and a cake or sandwich, then there are branches of several popular chains – Apostrophe, Starbucks, Bagel Street, Pret a Manger and Eat all provide drinks, snacks and light meals for those in a hurry.
If you want something more substantial, or want to relax over your food for a while, then there are a number of options. For lovers of Japanese food, Itsu serves up sushi and a branch of Wagamama has noodles and other Japanese dishes. For families, both Giraffe and Huxleys have a good menu of family favourites. If you’re looking for something at the top end of the scale, then try the glamorous Gordon Ramsay restaurant Plane Food, or the Caviar House and Prunier Seafood Bar.
There are also a number of bars, where you can get both food and drinks. Two Wetherspoons outlets cater for those who want a full bar and good value pub food, while V Bar serves tapas and drinks of all kinds. For something different, there’s Bar 5, where exclusive cocktails are served under an ever-changing display of fibre-optic lights.
