my first time in an airport Spoons, and a surprisingly pleasant experience. Busy but lots of free tables, a mixture of diners and drinkers creating quite a calm atmosphere which is really what you want here. Highly inflated prices as expected. I had a spicy (3 chillies) meat pizza which certainly lived up to its title, it was quite superb but tears were flowing openly. The beer choice was a bit mundane but otherwise this is an excellent place for the location. The layout is a bit odd at the bar but the seating area is quite pleasant with some booths divided by covid era separators. No waitress service today, or anything too much out of the ordinary.

A branch of Wetherspoon's that is airside in Heathrow's Terminal 5. There is a bar on one wall and a reasonably large seating area set aside for the pub between the terminal's walkways. It really doesn't feel like a 'spoon's. Most people seem to come here to eat, rather than drink.

Ales on were Greene King IPA & Abbot, Sharp's Doom Bar, Oakham JHB, Flack Manor Romsey Gold & Beartown Bear Ass. I had the latter, but was not particularly impressed. Prices are higher than normal 'spoon's, as they obviously have a captive audience.

There's very little to recommend this place, but it's still the best place for a drink in Terminal 5.

A weird airside Spoons; weird in that there’s a seating area cut off from the main bar by a thoroughfare, was this bar added afterwards when a unit came vacant? Seating-wise it’s perhaps unsurprisingly a fairly uninspired grid seating affair made worse by the COVID perspex booths. Attempts to add a bit of character via some wooden pergola style structure and a brick arch, which, in alignment with the black colourscheme, made it feel almost faintly upmarket. Also as to be expected it’s a reduced menu and steep prices (by Spoons standards). There was no sign of the drink/eat divide mentioned below, maybe this has now gone the way of the dodo because of the Wu Flu. There was cask, three in fact; GK IPA, Doom Bar and Hobgoblin. Being an idiot I decided to go for the least-likely-to-shift Hobgoblin, a pint of the latter set me back £3.89 and was poor, with a hint of old line cleaner (NBSS 1). One upside is that the staff were well-drilled and efficient. I doubt I'd feel the need to drink any cask here again with that line-up unless I was desperate for a beer before take-off!
