For some people in the UK – there is one food outlet we have a love and hate relationship.
And it’s called Greggs.
Whilst Greggs have branches in most towns selling sandwiches, cakes and such, most of us are there for the pasties, sausage rolls and steak bakes (your author included… mainly for the steak bakes).
Well it seems one airport has managed to attract the good value foodstuffs that Greggs sells – and its East Midlands Airport
The good news is that the establishment opened on the 30th March, with the venue being landside, in the arrivals hall.

No, it won’t satisfy those who what haute coture dining in the sky, nor will satisfy public health bodies who think there’s too much fat in a sausage roll, steak bake (although their salads aren’t that bad in calorie terms).
But those wanting a hot snack when landing – or wanting to take a treat through security – this could be a welcome step.
Now please excuse me… it’s a long way into town for a steak bake…
