Varied menu, well cooked food, good presentation and helpful staff
Absurd that the parking payment machines don't take cards, especially when all the hardware is fitted (even for contactless).

Shoreham Airport used to be welcoming but now it's not, they have even fined people £60 for sticking their ticket on a side window. Madness - they need to be modern and friendly and take any form of payment.
