Good Eats Near Heathrow

I am flying through London later today and have an 8hr layover at heathrow. Are there any good places to eat near the airport? I can take a cab and grab a bite while i wait...i hope.

    Take a cab out to Bray and eat at the Hinds Head pub. It's owned by Hester Blumenthal and the food is wonderful. It's near Windsor - another alternative. There is really not much else very close to LHR... or take the Tube into London.

      Don't get a black cab from Heathrow, call AAA on 01628 624446 and get them to meet you, costs about £22 from terminal 1,2,3 and £25 from 4.Also worth phoning the Fat Duck on the day to check cancellations.

        if you have that much time, pretty much anything in london is open to you since its a quick 15 minute train ride on the heathrow express to paddington.
