London Heathrow Airport Dining Guide

Turn your airport waiting time into a gourmet adventure with Heathrow’s thriving dining scene

Airports aren’t perhaps your first thought when you’re contemplating where to get a gorgeous meal. But they are places that any traveller will spend a lot of time, whether they like it or not.

So it’s heartening that some hubs are stepping up their game when it comes to gourmet offerings, realising that many customers want something a little tastier than a bland sandwich and bag of crisps.

Heathrow Airport has been a forerunner in this dining revolution. There have long been reliably good restaurants, like French bistro La Salle and Italian chain Carluccio’s, plus places to perch with a glass of fizz and half a dozen oysters. But the past few years have seen the big guns brought in – both Gordon Ramsay and Heston Blumenthal have restaurants at the airport.

Here’s our pick of the best Heathrow dining. Just be careful not to get carried away and miss your flight...
