Bath Road (East) Heathrow Hotels

Make an informed decision on where you are staying at London Heathrow Airport

The Pheasant Inn Pub Off Bath Road Heathrow

The Bath Road runs along the northern perimeter of Heathrow Airport and is the main hotel strip. If you are happy to pay for all your food, drink and entertainment in Heathrow hotels at inflated prices and are also happy to pay for the official Hoppa Buses that shuttle between Heathrow hotels and passenger terminals it doesn't really matter which Heathrow hotel you stay at. However, a lot of people end up paying more for these add-ons than they do for their hotel room.

Staying at a hotel along the Bath Road enables you to 'escape' the hotels and eat and drink at local prices and much cheaper, sometimes free public transport to the passenger terminals.

The availability of public transport also enables you to spend time in somewhere attractive like Windsor rather than killing time in the hotel bar. Many Heathrow Airport hotels are isolated where its hard to 'escape'.

On this page we focus on the eastern section of the Bath Road, arguably the better section of the Bath Road on the basis of more restaurant, pub and shop choices and also more public transport options.

We have a dedicated page of the western section of the Bath Road at Heathrow, which may be of particular interest to those using Terminal 5.

Restaurants, Pubs & Shops On Bath Road (East) Heathrow

Pubs With Food

3 Magpies Pub

The 3 Magpies is strategically situated above the main entrance to Heathrow airport. In the immediate locality are some of the largest airport hotels at Heathrow.

The Park Inn is opposite and the Renaissance is the next building east along the Bath Road.

The 3 Magpies offers budget simple pub food, most of which is well below the 10 GBP mark.

The White Hart Pub

Arguably more pleasing to the eye from the outside than the 3 Magpies, the White Hart offers similar 'value for money' simple pub fayre.

The White Hart has a totally different catchment area and is situated at the eastern end of the Bath Road near Cranford.

The Pheasant Pub (pictured top of page)

In terms of quality of food, probably the best of the three pubs. The menu is more adventurous and more expensive. Favoured watering hole of the local workers.

A short 3 or 4 minute walk off the Bath Road by McDonalds, situated in a residential housing area.


Il Basilico Pasta Restaurant

Down by the side of the Park Inn, a straight forward pasta restaurant serving pizza and pasta dishes at prices well below the neighbouring hotels.


Located in front of the Radisson Edwardian Hotel on the Bath Road the usual McDonald's offering is alive and well.

The restaurant has a pleasant seating area outside, a nice option on a fine day if you can ignore the noise of the traffic on the Bath Road.

McDonald's In Front Of Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel Heathrow Airport

McDonald's In Front Of Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel

The only chain fast food option on this section of the Bath Road. There is a wide range of chicken, burger, pizza, fish & chip and other fast food places at Cranford Shops, (see further below).

The Airport Bowl

Located at Harlington Corner next to the Ibis Hotel this bowling alley with fast food outlet and bar is much better inside than first appearances on the outside suggest.

Seems to attract a lot of locals and prices are very competitive.

There is a fast food outlet called Barcellos inside that used to be a McDonald's but now serves a much wider range well beyond burgers. You can get basic meals like chicken and chips/fries here at a fraction of the price than some of the surrounding hotels.

The Bowlenium Bar and slot machine room complete the picture

The actual bowling alley is pretty much the standard bowling alley offering.

Sovereign Convenience Store

Handy convenience store that also sells alcohol and some take away food. Situated next door to Il Basilico Pasta Restaurant adjacent to the Park Inn.

The Sovereign also is an outlet for selling Oyster Cards and Travelcards . If you are going into London for sightseeing, using one of these is by far the least expensive way to do this from Heathrow using the London Underground.

Domino's Pizza  Cranford

Cranford Fast Food

Cranford Shops

At the eastern end of the Bath Road is Cranford. By the Double Tree by Hilton Heathrow Airport and Travelodge Central is a bustling neighbourhood shopping centre serving the local community with all the basics. All the shops and restaurants are clustered together around a road junction.

This is the place to come around Heathrow for fast food. Everything from pizza to fish and chips to kebabs to burgers and chicken.

There is a pharmacy, hair dressers and several food and wine stores as well as fresh vegetables and fruit. Much of the local community are from the Indian subcontinent and what is available for sale often reflects this.

Neet food and wine is one of several convenience stores selling alcohol and food but is notable also as an outlet for selling Oyster Cards and Travelcards . If you are going into London for sightseeing, using one of these is by far the least expensive way to do this from Heathrow using the London Underground.

For most of your grocery needs there is a small supermarket called Tesco Express.

There is also a couple of Indian restaurants and a cafe restaurant called Moniz that offers simple food at budget prices all through the day.

Local Buses To The Airport And Beyond

The local buses that run along this section of the Bath Road are all the famous London red buses. If you stand anywhere along the Bath Road you will almost certainly be able to see at least one bus at any time, they are that frequent. Many of the routes are 24x7 and there is also a night bus N9, that goes all the way into Central London.

Free Buses To Heathrow Passenger Terminals

One aspect of the local buses that makes them especially attractive to visitors staying in hotels at the airport is that these local buses are free for use all around the perimeter roads. If you are staying at one of the hotels along the Bath Road between the Park Inn and the Ariel Holiday Inn the journey is free to all terminals.

If you board or disembark to the east of the Ariel Holiday Inn you pay the standard flat fare, which is still half the price of the Heathrow Hoppa Hotel shuttle buses.

Visiting London From Bath Road East Hotels

The money no object solution to getting into London for sightseeing is to take the Heathrow Hoppa Hotel Buses to Heathrow Airport Terminal 3 and then get the Heathrow Express train into London Paddington.

For a fraction of the price, you can use the London Underground and have unlimited travel for the day on London's buses and Underground using a Travelcard or Oyster Card.

You can purchase Travelcard and Oyster cards from Sovereign Convenience Store by the Park Inn and Neet Food and Wine, one of the Cranford Shops - both marked on the map at the top of the page. You can also get them from the Underground ticket offices at Heathrow.

The number 81 and 222 buses that run along the Bath Road every few minutes will take you to Hounslow West Underground station just beyond Cranford. Hounslow West is in zone 5, the Heathrow stations are in zone 6 saving you a little money if you use Travelcards. Bus journeys are zone less on Travelcards so you can use a zone 1-5 Travelcard between Hounslow West and Heathrow hotels even though they are in zone 6.

The 140 bus runs a 24x7 service to Hayes & Harlington Station where there are frequent trains into London's Paddington Station.

Visiting Windsor From Bath Road East Hotels

The area along the Bath Road is pretty much like the perimeter of any commercial airport. Many people just kill time in the lounge or in the their room watching TV. Close to Heathrow though is Windsor, famous for its castle but a great place to visit and explore with much else besides. There is a great range of interesting places to eat, even a theatre to attend that can make an evening to remember.
