bob visited on a Sunday lunchtime in September 2013. There were plenty of other customers, but this might have been because the Croydon Airport visitor centre was open for Open House London. It might also see some trade during weekdays, as it seems to be set up to do sandwiches and teas and things for the office workers of Airport House. They also do breakfast photo of breakfast deals menu.
There's an area set out for dining, and another area that's more pub-like. I sat in the pub-like bit. There was table service for food and drinks. It seemed to be OK to come in just for a drink.
I had the roast beef carvery (£8) photo, which is possibly only served on Sundays. There was also gammon and turkey available. It included one slice of beef, which was pink in the middle; not as rare as I'd have liked, but certainly not overcooked either photo. The vegetables were pretty good. Horseradish and mustard were provided without me having to ask.
Accessibility: Can't remember if there were steps to get in. The toilets are on the same level as everything else, and there may also be an accessible toilet.
