Maybe OP was on the VIP side, I think since there's no full bar service there, maybe they've cut the "menu"? I know when I was there in April, cocktail menus were available and the bar was happy to make whatever I requested (negroni).

Visited the Arrivals Lounge yesterday for the first time since re-opening. Showers etc are still excellent (and that's what it's really about). It was busy but not excessively so - got a shower immediately and got the last table that was free but that seemed to be how it worked for everyone.

It did seem like the breakfast had been altered somewhat. Good pastries have been replaced by soggy UA style pastries. Bread was very basic and the toaster breaks world records for how slow it is! I ordered a egg/bacon/sausage "bowl" which was actually a plate, but the bacon had been cooked some hours before. The yoghurts etc. were excellent and varied.

Yes it certainly wasn't a bowl!!! But that said I wonder how anyone would be intending to put all that in a bowl....

I did ask, but standard cocktails were offered up (e.g. G&T), as opposed to more crafted offerings in the past.

I was in the arrivals lounge two weeks ago. You could still order off the menu (e.g. Salmon Eggs Benedict) but you needed to know to ask.
