“Love the atmosphere”

This place is so cool! The service is friendly and welcoming, the food is really good and it's great to sit outside and see all the planes coming and going. Such a nice change from a pub garden!

“A real find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

Whether you are an aviation buff or not the restaurant at Cotswold airport is well worth a visit. Great service and excellent food. Plus a nice setting with lots going on outside the window.

“What a stunning venue!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

What better way to spend a sunny lunchtime than on the decking at the front of the restaurant, eating good food, with excellent friendly service, and watching the planes taking off and landing. If you're lucky, as we were, you may also get to see a Spitfire or other vintage planes

“Birthday lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

Enjoyed a delicious lunch here to celebrate a friend's 60th birthday. I would like to say not enough choice for the vegetarians in our party. It it great to spend time outside watching the planes arriving and when we visited it was a lovely day.

“Not the average airport restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

I have worked all over the UK in aviation and most airports have a little cafe that offers light refreshments and food. However Cotswold Airport have excelled themselves with a picturesque fully licensed (if you are not driving or flying) restaurant that offers much more. Either sit with a cup of tea on the terrace and watch really diverse displays of varying aircraft, or pop inside to sample reasonably priced meals or snacks. The decor is plush and comfortable and you would not believe you were at a small airfield (until a roaring fast jet or Spitfire zoom past) Second only to Cranfield maybe (but they have 3 restaurants!!!) this must be the best little airport dining establishment I have encountered.
Looking forward to the Autumn when they promise to be open in the evening for Curry nights etc
