Jamie Oliver visited Gatwick Airport in the UK to unveil his new flagship restaurant, The Diner. The 627m² (6,748ft²) eatery can serve 278 customers, making it one of the airport’s largest dining spots.
The Diner serves American-inspired food, with burgers, pancakes and hearty breakfasts included as part of its offering. The restaurant has three parts: a dining area, an art-deco inspired bar and a ‘grab-and-go’ deli.
Rachel Bulford, head of retail at Gatwick Airport, said, “We are excited to be continuing the long-established relationship between Jamie Oliver and Gatwick Airport; Jamie opened his first ever airport restaurant here at Gatwick in 2012, which is still the only UK airport branch.
“We are delighted that Gatwick is again working with Jamie to be the first to launch the brand new flagship concept – The Diner.”
Jamie Oliver added, “I’m chuffed to be opening a new diner at Gatwick Airport South Terminal. Airports can be pretty crazy places so we’re creating the perfect space to chill out with some good food, and maybe a drink or two, before you start your holiday. Everyone is welcome, no matter how long you stay.
“We’re totally upping the game in airport food. It’s all about the diner food you love, made with incredible, sustainable produce. There’s plenty of delicious healthy dishes, as well as some naughty ones that I’ve tried my best to keep in check, but each one is guaranteed to taste delicious!”
