Heathrow offers best of British

Heathrow Terminal One is offering travellers a final taste of the UK with this month’s opening of The Harlequin.

Styled as “a traditional alehouse and eatery”, the airport’s latest dining addition has been devised by its food and beverage partner The Restaurant Group to show the best of British food and drink.

Visitors to the 48-seat venue can choose from a selection of snacks and more substantial dishes, including Cornish pasties, hog roast baps and ploughman’s platters.

The drinks list has been designed to complement this unfussy home-bred menu, with a promising emphasis on promoting scrumpy cider and draught real ale.

Look out for Theakston’s Old Peculier, Young’s Waggle Dance and Bishop’s Finger, as well as The Harlequin, an ale created specially and exclusively for the new venture.

Chris Annetts, head of category for food and beverage at Heathrow, said: “The great British pub is an indispensable part of our landscape so we are thrilled to be opening one at Heathrow, the global gateway to the UK.  
“Championing some of the nation’s best produce, we hope The Harlequin will prove a popular destination for both UK and international passengers wanting to enjoy a last taste of Britain before the journey ahead.”
