“A destination with a difference”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

I had seen previous reviews for AV8 and although I live nearby, I never knew it existed. Many restaurants provide a similar offering; friendly staff, a menu that caters for all tastes and a range of beverages to suit differing needs. So in order to be different, you have to have something else and that usually links to location or price.
How many restaurants can boast an outlook of an airport too?

Well done AV8, it gave the kids something to talk about back in class after the weekend.

“Great location with tasty food”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

A little difficult to locate, look for the airfield control tower then park in front of the restaurant, between the building and the runway.

I rated it short of a perfect 5 due to the slow service, despite it being quiet it took a long time to place an order, then quite a long wait for the food to be served. Although everyone in our party ordered at the same time, one order was delayed/forgotton and only arrived once the staff had been prompted and by then everyone elso has finished their meal. Maybe it was new staff, but attention to detail does need looking at in my opinion.

That said, the food was good and the location very different from the average eatery. I will definately go again and would recommend it,

“Love the atmosphere”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

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!
