Well as Leighton kept messaging about this on the Forums and I have been here frequently (most recently en- route to Toulouse for our birthday weekend mid Nov 2014) I thought that I should rate it, if anything to try and stave off Leighton who is continually nipping away at my heels on our way to 800 place rates, well done Leighton keep up the good work btw (:-) you are a phenomenal beer and place rater.

As I recall this place is at one end of the terminal I think Gene (Travlr) in his review below has got the directions spot on. As you walk towards it, the bar, which is quite smallish and can get quite busy is on the LH side, there are some seats here but this area is mainly for drinking whereas there is a more dedicated eating area the other side of the pedestrian walkway (centrally placed). I have frequently eaten here and like most other JDWís I have found the food to be pretty reasonable fare and certainly well priced when compared to many of the other places at this Terminal.

In terms of the beer choice, it is always going to be a little more limited than that you would find in a standard JDW, but there were some cask choices (4-5 In think?) however as the craft choice and cans were really taking off we were happy with the likes of Six Point Bengali Tiger, Sweet Action and The Crisp Pilsner that had recently been cropping up in JDWs.

A safe choice for a decent beer in the type of environment that is usually a beer desert when it comes to a decent choice. Fine.

Visited on a Wednesday lunchtime in November 2015. Large spread out Spoons at the far end of T5. Had 5 festival beers on in decent nick plus craft offerings. Prices steeper than normal with food double normal prices. Itís useful to wait and rate for your flight.

Had couple of Sixpoints while waiting for a flight. Also some casks, but donít expect too much. Standard airport Spoons.

A pretty good place in Heathrow to have a beer. Pretty good selection considering it is located in the airport. Good service.

A pretty good spot as far as airport bars go. They always have a decent range of stuff on cask, plus a few crafty kegs and botles (in addition to macro stuff on keg and in bottle). Pretty good value considering youíre in an airport. Adequate service. Canít say much for the ambiance, but I donít come here for that anyway. This is your best option for a beer in T5, and probably in the whole of Heathrow, for that matter.

Down one level and to your left after passing security, assuming you survive that assault. Iíve passed through Terminal 5 security six times since the terminal opened, and this is the only time Iíve had enough time for a pint, despite having up to 4 hours for the transfer. Anyway, 9 non-macro beers on when I visited, including an odd assortment of American things. They had enough English and Scottish ales and ciders to keep me occupied for a while. Food was OK. All were pricey. Table servers were quick and efficient, but the barman took 30 minutes to deliver my first pint, so Iím not sure heís aware theyíre located in an airport. When I pointed it out, pints came more quickly. There is also one bottled beer at Fortnum & Mason, but thatís too wimpy to warrant adding it as a new place entry.

As far as Airport pubs go, this place worked out fine. Relatively large selection of beers, plenty of imports in bottle, a lot of lager taps and five hand pumps. Prices were very reasonable. Of course, it is Terminal 5 so seating can be hard to find. But well worth spending some time here, especially when youíve got absolutely nothing else to do on a layover.

Better than I expected for an airport bar. Had only a short time, but enjoyed the house beer. Prices were typical airport. Nothing exciting, but a decent place to pass some time.

A large expansive and open airport resto/bar. Self serve but pretty quic service. A few casks, non exciting and macro taps. Not nearly as cheap as the JDW in town, and quite pricey for what you get. If you are craving a pint though, not much choice.
