The menus are fairly traditional cafe offerings - baguettes, baked potatoes, ploughman's and ham/egg/chips. But the setting is great,...More

We visited every day when studying at a nearby establishment the food and service were good and despite a large group all good was out in a timely manner. A good selection and great price.

Have previously reviewed and recommended especially for food allergies. Have taken grandchildren there twice this week. The food is really good and children love it. The staff are helpful and friendly. Cannot recommend too highly for a value lunch with children.

it can get very busy although mornings tend to be busier when the sun is out as it is a popular stop for motorcyclists on their way to the Cotswolds

AV8 Restaurant, based at Cotswold Airport, Kemble is a fantastic location to grab a refreshment and take in the sights. You often see fast military jets here or even F1 Testing. Frequented by celebrities, its a truly interesting place to hang out, kick back and relax.
