Drake & Morgan will open its first airport restaurant and bar at Heathrow’s Terminal 4 this summer.
In a joint venture with the global hospitality and food service provider, Delaware North, ‘The Commission’ by Drake & Morgan will be a new casual all-day dining concept created exclusively for the airport.
Located airside in the terminal, The Commission will occupy 4,800 sq ft and will offer 170 covers with interior design by Fusion. The restaurant will be open every day from first to last flight.
The new all-day format has been created with travellers in mind. With a focus on seasonality, provenance and sustainability, the menu will offer the brand’s signature all-day menu, from breakfast and brunch through to lunch and supper, coffees and cocktails.
In addition, the airport site will offer a grab and go format for those passengers who like to have an ‘on-board picnic’ when they fly.
Jillian MacLean, managing director of Drake & Morgan, said: “Our all-day bar and dining format is ideal for transport hubs and we are working closely with Delaware North to deliver a fresh new concept designed specifically to appeal to travellers, from business passengers through to families”.
Ben Crowley, Heathrow’s head of food and beverage, added: “Drake & Morgan is an incredibly exciting brand and I am delighted to welcome them to Heathrow. We have been keen to expand the bar concepts available at Heathrow for some time and this proposal will provide a real point of difference for Terminal 4 with a quintessentially British touch.”
Drake & Morgan was founded in 2008 and has built up a portfolio of nine bars and restaurants in landmark sites across London.
