Passengers flying through Heathrow are to be treated to the best bites of Britain including crumpets, pork pies and fish and chips to mark the airport’s first British Food Fortnight.
From the 26th August – 12th September, more than 20 restaurants, bars and cafés across the terminals will be offering some of the nation’s favourite treats and tipples to
provide passengers with a quintessential taste of Britain.
To mark the occasion, Gordon Ramsay Plane Food in Terminal 5 is launching a limited edition three-course menu with culinary delights including Beetroot and English goat’s curd with toasted walnuts and pesto followed by Pan-fried sea bream with wild garlic and spring onion mash and tomato dressing.
Other eateries involved in the initiative include Terminal 4’s London themed Dining Street Restaurant, which will offer passengers a range of savoury dishes including Char-grilled Tandoori chicken (served with a free bottle of Kingfisher beer) alongside time-honoured treats such as Jam Roly-Poly Pudding, Kentish Crumble and Eton Mess.
Caviar House & Prunier SeafoodBar (Terminal 1, 3, 4 and 5) and Rhubarb Food Bar (Terminal 3) will also be serving passengers the great British institution of Afternoon Tea, complete with hand-cut sandwiches, warm scones and traditional leaf tea.
Heathrow head of category for food and beverage Chris Annetts says: “For all of our passengers passing through the terminals, our celebration of best of British is sure to provide a tasty reminder of the country’s greatest dishes. It is great to see so many of our restaurants and retailers championing some of the nation’s best food and ingredients – and it will certainly be interesting to see which dishes prove to be the most popular! We look forward to the event becoming an annual celebration which our passengers will be able to enjoy for years to come.”
