Fairly standard airport JDW. 5 not very interesting cask ales but I picked up some cheap keg ticks - the type of beer type not normally drink. Helpful staff but more expensive than normal JDW. Better than just drinking diet coke.

Not bad for an airport bar, in fact the only one I’d drink in at T.5! Actually does guest beers not just Pride/Doom Bar. Also the house ale is from Loddon Brewery in nearby Berkshire.

Overall fairly ’meh’, but it was nice to at least be able to sample a few cask ales while Terminal 5 slowly sucked my soul dry (here is a Dr Who plot for you)

The Crown Rivers is a decent (by airport standards) spoonies in Terminal 5, Heathrow. The place is clean, well-lit. You can’t complain about the rather sterile atmosphere. As with most JDW bars, the service is professional and prompt. The selection’s weak (5 casks plus the usual options on keg), but not bad for an airport. When I visited, the pub had 3 guest beers on. The value’s not awful considering the location. Overall, this place is about as good as you could hope for. This place is definitely worth a look-in if you’re trying to kill time in T5.

Last visit on 02/10/12.
Open plan airport spoons near the low numbered gates in T5.
Service is usually decent here and prices, whilst much higher than the high street JDW’s are reasonable for an airport.
The selection can be hit and miss, sometimes just the JDW house beers with guests from the Sorry and Coming breweries !
Other times there’ll be 2 or 3 guests, I’ve had stuff from Wolfe and Mordue this year.
Look out also for the Loddon house beer brewed especially for them, again this seems to be unavailable more often than it is!
Update 11/11/12. Visited during the recent JDW festival and 3 festival beers were available on cask, including 2 of the collaborations.

Visited on October 5, 2012. Sat at a table close to the bar for a few beers while waiting for my connecting flight. They had 5 real ales on and a few other draught beers, plus some bottles. Not overly expensive for an airport bar. Great service. Did not eat.

Small bar area where you can place your order. Maybe about 10 taps with another 6 hand pumps. Seemed like they were out of half the beers were out, though. Service was quick and good. Prices weren’t terrible for the airport. They accept a bunch of different currencies, which is kind of a nice thing.

Expensive pints, 6 beer engines, all common fare, apparently, and none really in great shape. But it’s an airport so expectations aren’t high and it beats the rest of the pubs and restaurants in the terminal.

Usual plished but lazy Wetherspoon offering in a perfect pitch. The menu advertises up to 60 US craft beers in bottle and stays legal by having none. Where else would be better to showcase this? One plus point is a house beer from Loddon Brewery allegedly brewed for here alone.

Terminal 5, near gate A7. Serving 5 real ales at the exact same price as in the city. Food is JD Wetherspoon. A last glimpse of London beer scene before returning home or a teaser while in transit.
