Bristol Airport announces new food outlets
Created: 22nd Nov 2018
A seven month development project commenced in October 2018 creating new restaurants and eateries at Bristol Airport. Passengers will be able to enjoy new restaurants and brands including Frankie & Benny’s, Barburrito, EAT and Warrens Bakery after the recent tender process for several key food and beverage outlets.
Having invested more than £160 million in new infrastructure and facilities since 2010, Bristol Airport is well positioned to serve passengers across the South West of the UK and provides a gateway to the region for international visitors.
The catering project will be phased over the winter season, with Warrens Bakery, EAT and Barburrito opening in December 2018 and Frankie and Benny’s opening in Spring 2019.
Warrens Bakery is one of the UK’s top three craft bakeries and the World’s oldest pasty maker. Using artisan, hand crafted bread and West Country ingredients to make a wide range of deli sandwiches.
EAT. have been creating, making and serving their own great tasting seasonal recipes for over 20 years. The first shop opened for business in 1996 on Villiers Street in London and since then they have continually been inventing new and exciting food and drinks for customers. Their fresh food changes with the seasons and every day starts by making food from scratch with their own recipes; from homemade soups, sandwiches, salads and hot pots.
Barburrito; the UK’s first and award winning burrito brand. Famous for serving fast, healthy Mexican street food and a fab range of traditional and Mexican style breakfast dishes; you choose exactly what you want and how you want it, and let the team make it while you watch! "Award-winning, casual and cool." (Marie Claire)
Frankie & Benny’s offers a full menu from breakfast to lunch and dinner specialising in food inspired by New York Italian cuisine including extensive gluten free options, a full cocktail and bar range as well as great children’s meals. Bristol Airport will be the Frankie & Benny’s 7th open airport location; going from strength to strength with consistent range and menu development as well as a 2016 win in the Consumer Choice category of the annual airport FAB Awards.
The Burger King restaurant will also be extensively refurbished with passengers being able to use self-order kiosks.
Kate Ridgers, Head of Commercial Development at Bristol Airport said:
“We are delighted to welcome these high street brands to Bristol Airport. Passengers will be able to enjoy an extended range of products in a variety of restaurants designed to create a relaxing ambience when visiting Bristol Airport in the future. After market research and passenger feedback we know passengers start their trip as soon as they arrive at the airport. We wanted to offer a wide selection of restaurants and bars with an extended choice of menus including children’s and special dietary requirements both in the check-in area and departure lounge.”
Bristol Airport is the ninth largest airport in the UK and the fifth largest airport outside of London. In 2017 over 8 million passengers used the Airport with planning approvals now in place for 10 million passengers per annum.
