Wander around airport connecting flight Schipol

I am flying on a flight from London – Schipol soon and then outbound to Moscow.

My layover time is around 3 hours. In this time I would like to wander around the airport, look at the shops and hopefully have something to eat.

Last time though, when I flew the same route, I was stuck in the connecting flight lounge and couldn’t look around without re-entering the airport.

So my question is will I be put in the connecting flight lounge again or will I be able to wander around?

And if I am put in the connecting flight lounge is there any point for me to re-Enter the airport?
