We had a few hours to spare while youngest son was at a nearby recording studio in Shefford. After popping into several venues in Shefford and being disappointed that they didn't serve food at all, or not after two, or smelt somewhat of wacky baccy, we stumbled across the Airman at Meppershall. What a welcome relief, they serve food all... More

We popped in for a light lunch and were not disappointed. It was a friendly service and the food was delicious.

Looks lovely from the outside but very tired on the inside. Was two other people in the restaurant. Food was very disappointing. Didn't have some of the menu to offer us. No I wouldn't visit again. On the plus side the service was good and polite but we were the only table eating ! Sorry Airman .

The outside of this building belies the quality of food on offer. We had sandwiches and fries, and they were all good quality and reasonably priced. The service was good.

Visited on a Saturday afternoon and it was dead! This should have been a warning to us. I ordered the roasted chicken dinner which sounded nice. Signs inside and out were promoting 'fresh' home cooked food. After a couple of games of pool the food arrived. I was bitterly disappointed! The chicken breast had been butterflies and pan cooked so... More

I was here last sunday for mothers day lunch with my family, we had a booking and were seated promptly by the hostess at reception who went through some of the options on the menu for us before giving us time to get settled before asking for our drinks order. Our drinks came through very quickly bought to us by... More

I must admit it was surprising when I walked into the Airman last night, it has been my local for the last 6 years but at some point in the last week it has completely changed! In the bar area all of the tables have a candle burning and a flower in the centre and it just has a much... More

I came here for a meal with my mum last Sunday and I was actually pleasantly surprised by the food as well as the staff. I hadn't made a booking but was surprised to hear that they'd still be able to seat me even though they were really busy, I sat in the bar area near to the backdoor, there... More
