For anyone with an interest in aircraft the location is excellent. However the location is let down by the indifferent staff and to food served luke warn to cool. Staff were neglectful and dismissive - nobody checked to see did we want more tea or coffee, no butter or marmalade was provided for the toast. This restaurant is located in a four star hotel - a lot needs to be done to bring the runway 28 experience up to 4 star standard.

Food was average but the service was very poor as they are understaffed. Last orders were at 10.15pm, and they didn’t tell us this until we got our bill handed to us at 10.20pm. We will not be going again. Very disappointing.

I think you need to revive your menu not a lot of choices. The staff were very attentive and the food we ordered was lovely and hot when it got to our table.
We had our 4 year old grandson with us and he love it as he could see the planes flying by.

The location is great - we were staying in the hotel so we decided to book in for dinner here as we had seen it online.
I wouldn’t say the food is amazing, we ordered pizzas which were okay and the Parmesan fries were a bit laughable as there was a couple of shreds of cheese, not worth the money.
Drinks offering is good, we didn’t have any cocktails so can’t say if they were good or not.
It gets cold on the roof so I’d say request a seat under the heater (we didn’t and were sitting in the cold - we asked to move tables and were told no as they were booked, but another couple was moved in by a heater a few mins later - we were offered blankets though)
All in I’d say this is 3.5/5 roughly.

So we booked this as a family of 4.Birthday celebration for one of my kids.What a disappointment.Two other celebration on other tables were made a fuss over. Booking for 2:30pm, but when we went to order some of the food was not available to order. Very disappointed with that. Asked if we could order off the dinner menu and we were told no.
The Brunch menu is what we went for closes at 3pm so why did they offer a booking at 2:30pm and not all food on the menu is available.From my and my family's experience I don't recommend. Fairly disappointing visit.

Staff were so friendly and helpful. The venue is lovely and the views are fab! Lovely space especially on a good day weather wise. Kids loved watching the planes. Food was nice but portions were small for the price. Eggs benedict came on one slice of bread and club sandwich was on the small side. On the other hand, kids portions were huge!! All in all a lovely day out but think the food could be improved or prices reduced a bit.

Service overall excellent and our particular server was very friendly and good natured. Food is good but remember more tapas than full meal. Prices could be a little lower for the food you are getting.
Overall good ambience more flights starting to take off again abs and when they do you stop talking.
Would recommend an enjoyable evening.

The service was poor. While all the service staff were very helpful and friendly, it was slow and a bit all over the place. Just two of us at the table, our lunch didn't come out at the same time. I couldn't wait for my guests food to come as we are outside and mine started going cold.

No cutlery was given with our lunch as it came, and then the, same with dessert. No basics like salt/pepper and sauce to accompany the food. The place was a quiet time in the afternoon on a Sunday so I would hate to be there on a busy day unfortunately.

The food is a little overpriced for the brunch in my honest opinion eg. for the breakfast fry and the sandwich choices. But the outdoor area and novelty of the planes passing makes up for that.

My impression was the waiting staff were new and it became frustrating during our time there. It wasnt nice to hear the same said by other guests we met as we left the restaurant. Hopefully these issues will improve so we can return again soon.

Food was good. Service was poor. Waited twenty minutes before someone took our order, we had to call someone to take our order in the end. Wanted desert, waited another fifteen minutes for someone to come take our order for that, only for them to return to tell us the kitchen had closed.

Really had a nice meal at Runway 28 yesterday. We asked for a table by the balcony and got one no bother which was great. My wife asked for a blanket and got one no problem. Although menu is limited food was really good and tasty...no complaints there. Manager took time out to speak to us which we really appreciated (told us a few planes stories etc) as sometimes people hide behind the masks but that should not stop people engaging with each other so thanks! Even got to see a BA plane abort a landing and re-circle back to land safely the second time! However of all the evening we could hardly see the planes due to fog but can't blame the hotel for that☺! Will definitely be back.

Food, drink was great, view was great but the service was slow. Left at the desk with 3 staff standing there ignoring us. Once seated we were left for 15-20 minutes without being served.

Will definitely come back but not because of the service.

Service was very slow.
We had to try get some ones attention after 15 mins of sitting down.
No one asked us during our food was it ok , or if we wanted more drinks.
Not enough staff waiting on tables. Others were having the same issue.
Was disappointed
