We come here sometimes for lunch with Colleagues. It is located on Staverton Airport and offer a good view of private jets and helicopters taking off/landing or doing training. The food is good and they serve quite quickly.

Great place to have a drink or a bite to eat and watch the planes come and go. Lots of outside tables view not so good from inside. Service good. Quite busy at times. Didn’t eat but food looked fine.

We visit the Aviator most weeks as we live close by. Where else can you get good food and a perfect view of the airfield. The food is well priced and of good quality. Its a hidden gem just outside Cheltenham
