Snail porridge comes to Heathrow

Wacky chef Heston Blumenthal is to open a new restaurant at Heathrow next year.

Still under wraps, the new restaurant will be sited air-side in the new £2.5 billion Queen's Terminal when it begins operations next June.

The airport said the concept and menu, currently being developed, will "showcase Heston's love for nostalgia and celebrate his pride of all things British, including our much loved and familiar dishes".

"This is an incredible project," said Blumenthal. "There are so many different elements to consider when people are travelling. We want to deliver a broad spectrum of easy to enjoy, familiar dishes from fish and chips to pizza."

"This new restaurant will certainly introduce a unique and original dimension to the airport eating experience at Heathrow' said Heathrow retail director Muriel Zingraff-Shariff.
