Big names unveiled for Stansted's £80m new food retail units

Braintree and Witham Times: How the new food and drink units will look How the new food and drink units will look

Holidaymakers can expect new restaurants, bars and cafes in a £80million facelift at Stansted Airport.

More than 70 individual food and drink brands submitted tenders for the available units.

The successful firms were James Martin Kitchen - a bakery from the TV chef that is not at any other airport in the world; Itsu, Harris + Hoole, Giraffe, Halo, Leon, Cabin, Coast to Coast, Pret A Manger, Starbucks, Burger King, JD Wetherspoon and M&S Simply Food.

They will be located in one area of the terminal and all cafes, bars and restaurants will have screens displaying flight information.

Burger King will open later this year and M&S Simply Food in November.

All remaining cafes, bars and restaurants will open next spring.

Tenders have yet to go out for the final phase, high street and high end retail fashion units.

The first phase of the new departure lounge development will open to customers later this month.

Very true, but the 80million being spent obviously has nothing to do with the government and is most likely being invested by the various new restaurants, shops and the company that runs Stansted.

Maybe I'm wrong tho and the airport is council run.

A stupid, pointless and uneducated comment.
