Newcastle Airport Aster & Thyme

Newcastle Airport Opens Aster & Thyme

Newcastle Airport, in collaboration with travel food and beverage specialists SSP, has today opened a brand-new premium restaurant and bar Aster & Thyme

Aster & Thyme is replacing the Cabin Bar, increasing the outlet’s size by 130% and offering passengers a completely new experience with spectacular wall-to-wall views of the airfield.

The new outlet features a botanical-themed interior design, complemented by premium marble and brass finishes. Towering floor-to-ceiling windows provide passengers with an impressive uninterrupted view of the airfield, delivering a luxurious atmosphere like no other.

As well as relaxing within the impressive interior, passengers can choose from a range of indulgent dishes. From the outlets’ breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks menus – all of which celebrate the best of local produce. From North Sea Kippers and Slow Cooked Beef Short Rib to Local Artisan Cheese Boards. There is something to suit all tastebuds.

Dean Ward, Director of Commercial at Newcastle Airport Comments on the Opening of Aster & Thyme: 

“We are excited to launch Aster & Thyme, our brand-new premium bar and restaurant, at Newcastle International Airport today.

“Aster & Thyme embodies our commitment to providing passengers with a world-class travel experience. This stylish brasserie will be a haven for travellers to relax and enjoy the best North East produce ahead of their departure. All with fantastic views of the airfield.”
