See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Joseph Holt took on the franchise of this outlet on 16/7/2021. This meant the return of cask ale to Terminal 2. The pub even has its own on-site microbrewery, apparently the first airside brewery in the UK! This occasionally produces the airport-only Bridgewater Ale. Holt's have included traditional architectural features such as parquet flooring, exposed brickwork, part-panelled walls, ceramic tiling, leaded glass, and green leather seating across a number of distinct areas. Seating ranges from high tables near the bar to booth seating further back, dining tables, sofas, armchairs, and quieter spots looking out onto the runway. Altogether it gives an air of comfort and sophistication. The feature wall of beer barrel ends at the entrance makes a statement.
