Bristol Airport unveils refurbished bar and restaurant

Bristol Airport has opened its refurbished bar and restaurant as part of a £4m redevelopment of its departure lounge.

Brigg & Stow Bar will offer a range of drinks and meals and is located after security.

Tom Hack, head of commercial, Bristol Airport said: “Following an extensive investment in both the kitchen and front of house facilities from the operator, SSP, we are thrilled to open the doors to the new Brigg & Stow Bar and Kitchen at Bristol Airport. The facility will offer a fantastic experience for our passengers who can sample some delights from the South West region and beyond. Our customers can look forward to enjoying a drink and a meal in the new and improved space during their next trip.”

Fi Butcher, UK & Ireland marketing director, SSP said: “Brigg & Stow at Bristol Airport is a prime example of our team’s success in delivering truly local experiences to travellers. Everything is a reflection of the Bristol region – from the design of the space which draws inspiration from Bristol Bridge, and features graffiti-style graphics, down to the title of the outlet, which is derived from Bristol’s original name of ‘Brigg Stow’ (meaning ‘‘meeting place at the bridge’ in the original Saxon).

“Our research shows us that today’s traveller is looking for more sustainable food and beverage options, so as much as possible we aim to work with local suppliers. Our local partnerships include gins from Bristol-based, carbon neutral micro distillery, Psychopomp Microdistillery, ciders from local-favourite, Thatchers Cider and cheddar cheese and breads from family run businesses, Barber’s Cheddar and Hobbs House Bakery.”
