Big Smoke Brew Co has partnered with Airport Retail Enterprises (ARE) again to open two new craft beer and food bars at Heathrow this summer.
The Oceanic, in Terminal 3, and The Globe, in Terminal 5, will serve Big Smoke’s core range of beers and gins,
accompanied by seasonal food and friendly service.
Opening next month, the pubs will feature Big Smoke’s modern design aesthetic, and warm and welcoming atmosphere. As a nod to the past, The Oceanic references the original name of Terminal 3, which opened as the Oceanic Terminal in 1961. The Globe is an acknowledgement of the breadth of international destinations to which Heathrow’s Terminal 5 connects.
Big Smoke has designed an exclusive beer for Heathrow. Flight Mode is a crisp and refreshing 4% ABV pilsner which will be available at both new pubs, alongside a wide range of drinks designed to complement the food.
The bar will be well stocked with Big Smoke’s core range of locally produced beers, cider, and gins, including eight keg options, two cask ales, six cans in the fridge, and three house gins. There will also be a large selection of premium beers, wines, spirits, cocktails, and soft drinks.
Fraser Brown, Heathrow’s retail and property director, said: “As the UK’s gateway to the world, we are delighted that local Surrey-based brand, Big Smoke, will be expanding its offering into Terminals 3 and 5.
“Heathrow strives to provide our passengers with the best airport service in the world, and these two new openings will
serve as great additions for the summer, as travellers and their loved ones will get the opportunity to enjoy an authentic local experience across the terminals.”
Rich Craig, who launched Big Smoke Brew Co with his business partner James Morgan in 2014, said: “We are thrilled to be opening two new Big Smoke pubs at Heathrow, bringing our signature home-cooked food and craft beers to more global travellers.
“The Big Smoke brewery is only eight miles from the airport, so we are offering a truly local experience. We are in safe hands with the team at ARE, who are as dedicated to delivering fantastic service and a welcoming atmosphere as we are.”
