Clermont Hotel Group, the largest hotel owner-operator in London, has introduced the stylish Aviator Sports Bar and Restaurant at the company’s popular Thistle Heathrow Terminal 5 hotel.

The opening of Aviator Sports Bar and Restaurant comes following in a £240,000 investment in the property and it’s a fantastic spot for lunch or dinner before heading off from Heathrow Terminal 5 on a British Airways flight.

Aviator Sports Bar & Restaurant offers a range of top-quality meals – from a delicious must-have fish and chips to excellent stone-baked pizzas, burgers, sandwiches and more – in a stylish and very British setting.

The venue also has a pool table and screens for showing sport from TNT and Amazon, and room for 100 in the bar area and 100 in the restaurant.

“Our portfolio of Thistle venues are all situated in prime, convenience-focused locations and our Thistle Heathrow Terminal 5 is no different,” said Clermont Hotel Group Sales and Marketing Director, Marc Saunders.

“Extensive research revealed that there is a clear desire for our guests to be able to kick back, relax and switch into holiday-mode as soon as they check in, even if they are staying with us just one night ahead of jetting off on holiday.

“Alongside this desire for a quality food and beverage offering, there was also a clear need to create a multi-functional space with entertainment elements, which is why we have incorporated screens and a pool table – and inspired by its airport location, the Aviator Sports Bar and Restaurant was created.

“We also hope that the new space broadens appeal to the local community as well as our hotel guests,” he said.

Thistle Heathrow T5 is perfectly situated as a top spot for guests who have just touched down after a long flight or those preparing to set off in the early morning across the British Airways network.
