Welcome to The Airport Pub & Grill. We are located right at the end of the runway at Manchester Airport, not far from T3. We are the only public house in the UK that is situated right next to an airport runway. Come and visit us for a fun day out for all ages. We serve a wide selection of beers and spirits and we serve food from 9:00am to evening time, from a wide selection of snacks to main courses. If you're looking to keep the kids entertained then come and visit us. Car parking charges start from £1.50 for 1 hour of parking. We look forward to seeing you. The Airport Pub

£100 Parking fine for a 25 minute stay?!?! Staff and clear signs should make you aware of the 'Parking Eye'. Absolutely disgusted! I've no problem paying for parking as long as i'm aware that i have too. Feel cheated buy a scam..

Hi Karl. I am sorry that you feel that you are a victim of a 'scam' but can assure you that it is in no way a scam. There are numerous signs around the car park informing customers of the need to pay for parking.
