About the Pub

This large pub at the end of Manchester Airport's main runway re-opened in late January 2015 after a massive four month refurbishment which has transformed the place into a pub where the emphasis is on food. The scale of this refurbishment is something that has never been seen within before in the Robinsons estate and marks a return for the brewery to managed houses. The interior has been completely altered and a large single room has a bar on the left side with four handpumps. A reasonable choice of bottled beers is also available. The new decor features an aeronautical theme mixed with British colonial retro style; there are 'Spitfire arm chairs' and booth seating in circular jet engine style, vintage propeller fittings, flying ducks dressed in mini pilot outfits and blueprints of old aeroplanes. The interior furnishings include vintage designer wallpapers and fabrics as well as more modern features such as spotlights and glazed screens to divide up the large space. However whilst the emphasis is on food, there are no problems in just having a drink here and the pub is family friendly. The outside back patio terrace feature tables and a variety of chairs whilst the extensive garden features a number of tables and bench seating as well as a children's slide and climbing frame. And with aircraft passing extremely close by at the end of the runway, this will continue to be a very popular spot for people of all ages to watch the world go by - literally! However, please be aware that CAR PARKING CHARGES APPLY here - charges are £3.50 for 2 hours; £1.80 for one hour (correct as of April 2018). NO REFUND is given even if you make a purchase at the bar. Car park managed by Excel Parking Services, pay via the Pay & Display machines. NB the car parking often gets completely full on summer evenings, and at weekends.
