Bristol Airport opens refurbished bar and restaurant – Brigg & Stow

The Brigg & Stow Bar at Bristol Airport has been refurbished as part of a £4 million redevelopment of the departure lounge.

Customers will have an opportunity to enjoy a wide range of drinks and a choice of meals from classic dishes to light bites. Located after security in the departure lounge, the new bar will be open every day from the first to last flight.

Bristol Airport is anticipating one of the busiest ever Summer seasons this year and the enhanced bar will provide an opportunity for customers to eat, drink, and relax before they fly.

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 added: “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.”
