Air-side only of Terminal 1, on the first floor level. The marketing blurb describes it as '... an innovative eating and drinking experience at the heart of Terminal 1, where you'll find that it isn't just the menu that's unique'. The menu offers hearty dishes where each dish has a recommended beer to accompany it. Back in 2019, three, mostly locally-sourced cask ales were available on draught from handpump or casks set on the bar-back. That situation changed in the post-Covid world, so cask ale choice today is more limited. It is large enough to accommodate 300 people. For the people not wishing to drink cask ale, there are pour-your-own-pint machines that allow you to swipe a card and avoid the queue at the bar. Quite an innovative venture for the airport. Be aware that prices are high! The photo is copyright of DesignWagen ( and Manchester Airport plc.
