lunchtime, space available, buzzy - last chance for a "decent pint" before a weekend in Barcelona.
Thornbridge / Thornbridge Hall - Jaipur5.90ExcellentBittersweet, good body, excellent condition. Imagine the original IPA may have been something like this strength and sweetness to last the trip to the subcontinent? Very nice.
Adnams - Broadside4.70GoodRich and malty, reasonable condition.

About The Flying Horse

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Gatwick Airport, West Sussex, RH6 0NN.

Typical UK airport "pub" with airport prices - but good selection of real ale. Located airside in the South Terminal building. Opened May 2008. Gatwick Airport covers the site of Gatwick Race Course, at which race meetings were held for fifty years (1890-1940). The name 'The Flying Horse' links the old race course with the airport. Furthermore, Pegasus, the most famous flying horse, has given its name to a constellation in the night sky. Traditionally, the name 'flying horse' has also been associated with coaching inns. Before the advent of rail and air travel, these inns were the transport hubs of their day.

We have visited this pub twice, seen 5 different beers and tried 2 of them.
