A Wetherspoon airport pub has been named as the best in the world at the Food & Beverage (FAB) awards in Geneva.

 The Windmill, which opened at Stansted Airport in March 2015, won the title ‘Airport bar of the year’ at the awards, organised by the Moodie Davitt Report and the Foodie Report.

The awards recognise the most innovative projects in travel-related food and beverage.

Two other Wetherspoon pubs at Birmingham Airport and at Liverpool Lime Street Station were also recognised with highly commended awards. 

Wetherspoon head of property and acquisitions, Jon Randall, said: “We are delighted that the Windmill has been named the best ‘Airport bar of the year.

“The award is testament to the amazing efforts of manager Michael Wilkins and his team of 160 staff who serve great food and drink in a superb looking pub.

“The Windmill is a vital part of the food and drink offering at Stansted Airport.

 “We are equally proud of the awards to Wetherspoon at Birmingham Airport and The North Western at Liverpool Lime Street Station.”

Stansted interim commercial director, Martin Jones, added: “ It’s a fantastic achievement for the Windmill to be recognised as the best airport bar in the world, just over a year after it opened at the heart of Stansted’s £80 million terminal transformation project.

“I would like to congratulate the whole Wetherspoon team as the pub is now an integral part of the new food and drink offer at Stansted and has proven to be extremely popular with both our UK and overseas passengers.”
