Jamie Oliver to open first airport restaurant at Gatwick this summer

Jamie Oliver is set to open his first airport restaurant at Gatwick's North Terminal this summer.

Jamie Oliver at Gatwick, which will launch in June occupying a 6,000sq ft space, will feature a Jamie's Italian restaurant and Bakery - exclusively designed for Gatwick, serving a variety of take-away pizza, sweets and salads.

It will also include a Union Jacks bar, a spin-off from the celebrity chef's new chain, offering a range of British small plates including dishes from the Union Jacks menu and a selection of sandwiches. In addition, the bar will feature an "open beer" cellar offering a large number UK beers and an all-British wine list.

Charlotte Christiansen, business development manager at Gatwick Airport, said: "We've worked closely with Jamie Oliver to create a concept that would appeal to all of our passenger groups - whether it's a family or couple that have the time to sit down for a meal in Jamie's Italian or Union Jacks, or those simply wanting to ‘grab' food to ‘graze' on the plane."

Oliver added: "This will be something really special. I've worked with my team to take the very best bits from Jamie's Italian and Union Jacks and build them into something beautiful and exciting just for Gatwick."
