Award for airport food

The reputation of airport food was given another lift last week after the Crowne Plaza London Heathrow Terminal 4 was awarded an AA Rosette for its restaurant, Urban Brasserie, just four months after its official opening last October.

Led by executive head chef Sam Tekkle, the catering team at the venue serve modern British cuisine including heritage beetroot salad, lamb Scotch egg with lovage mash and pan-fried sea bass with shimeji mushrooms.

The AA praised the “eclectic selection of dishes” and added: “From grills to the more innovative offerings, expect big flavours and accurate cookery from the skilful team.”

Tekkle said: “We work hard to provide a relaxing ambience and inventive food. We are now working toward a second rosette with a new spring menu launching soon.”

The Crowne Plaza forms part of a dual-branded property with a Holiday Inn Express and was the largest hotel to open in the UK in 2018 and the largest hotel complex directly connected to a British airport terminal.

The two hotels operate under a franchise agreement with IHG and are managed by Arora Hotels, a division of the Arora Group. The construction of the hotels has been managed by Grove Developments, the construction division of the Arora Group (BTN 29 October 2018).
