Food: Quest for a high-flying croissant

Click to follow
The UK's lightest, fluffiest, airport croissant can be found in the British Airways passenger lounge at Glasgow Airport. So says the restaurant critic Egon Ronay, in his third annual gastronomic guide to airports, published yesterday. Planet Hollywood, at Gatwick's South Terminal, meanwhile, is judged to have the best atmosphere, as well as the most welcoming and friendly service.

While Mr Ronay's "best chips" award unsurprisingly went to Harry Ramsden's (also at Glasgow), the chain's outlet in Heathrow's Terminal One was applauded for the "most appetising traditional breakfast".

The "most authentic cappuccino" award was jointly won by AMT Expresso at Heathrow's Terminal One and Cafe Select at Edinburgh. The "tastiest sandwich or baguette" is deemed to be offered by Pret a Manger at Heathrow, while the "best wine by the glass" is at the Noon Indian restaurant, also at Heathrow.
