Fairoaks Airport Bar (F A B!) Now Open

After a change in ownership and stylish renovation, the Fairoaks Airport Bar (F A B!) is now open for business! The opening night was held on Friday and was a huge success with over 100 people joining the fun throughout the evening. Jack Page, one of the Barman at F A B!, commented, “It was great to see such a wide range of people throughout the evening. Everyone from private owners, flight centre members, workers at the airfield and even visitors to Fairoaks dropped by for a couple of pints and added to an exciting atmosphere on the night. Raising the profile of the bar is our main aim at the moment and we feel the success of our opening night has helped to do just that. We are looking forward to some exciting events throughout the year and of course getting to know our new ‘locals’!” F A B! is open every Wednesday and Friday from 5pm till late.
