I'm flying from Gatwick South tomorrow and was wondering if there was anywhere to be recommended in airside departures for a good airfield/runway view? Ideally in/near a good refreshment establishment...

In 2011, Café Rouge (airside) offered a splendid view over the South Terminal apron and departing aircraft queueing/lining up for 26L

Yes, definitely go for Cafe Rouge (sorry, can't do e acute on this keyboard). I was there last month. Ask for a window seat if you can. They're used to people with more than a passing interest in planes!

If you're flying with Virgin Atlantic, the Virgin V-Room is brilliant, and has free telescopes.

Cafe Rouge will be your best bet. I managed to make a croque monsieur and a drink linger for an hour a few years ago while I watched the action on the runways!
