  • 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). Also they are often broken and the charges are hiked up by a massive percentage every year. 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.
