This summer en route to Berlin, I have a SIX HOUR layover at Heathrow.
Not sure of current security, but I think I can skip out of the airport, hit the underground, enjoy a couple pints, and make my connection.
Three options to use this time enjoyably:
a) Airport pubs - can't find current beer menus, but looks like Fuller's LP and Adnams have been on hand pulls there in the past. Which pubs are best?
b) Find a classic traditional English pub (w/ Adnams a bonus) not too far from a tube stop direct from Heathrow. This would be awesome - but which ones? Could easily waste precious time on the search....
c) Hit this CAMRA beer fest, which just happens to be opening up 30 min before my plane lands. That would be cool - but it seems to feature some of the more nontraditional, nonmajor choices of England - whereas I wouldn't mind simply enjoying Fuller's ESB and Adnams and any other classics, for the taste bud resetting.http://www.ealingbeerfestival.org.uk/
Thanks for any tips!
