Heathrow Airport has created its first ever food guide, Food on the Fly, in conjunction with the airport’s ‘official taste buds’ John Torode and Gregg Wallace.

Thousands of copies of Food on the Fly will be handed to passengers over the coming week, in the middle of the busy summer holiday period.

The guide provides a comprehensive overview of dining options at Heathrow, with reviews of the airport’s 73 bars, cafes and restaurants. It also features specially formulated top fives and a breakdown of the eateries by terminal.
