Nice coffee and cake offer. Have also had the fish and chips, the mushy peas are delicious. Although the chips are okay, they could be better. Staff are friendly and helpful. Good view of the airfield.

The food here is reasonably priced and good value for money. Once you com0plete your skydive they give you a voucher for a free drink so why not have some food too?
