I had heard about AV8 from friends, so a couple of weeks ago I called in for lunch with my daughter and grand daughter. The restaurant is spacious, airy and clean. We sat near one of the windows with a good view of the comings...More

We stopped by for lunch and a biplane (Sopwith?) landed and then a bit later a P-51 Mustang, both of which attracted crowds. Good food at a reasonable price, chilled drinks on a (very) hot day, and... well, just somewhere nice to sit and while...More

We often fly in to Kemble, specifically for lunch here. The menu is good, food is usually very quick to arrive, and the portions are very generous. Lots of seating, with some outside so you can watch the aircraft while eating lunch!

Based on one Saturday visit, if you are flying in, the circuit is pretty full from late morning to early afternoon - we ended up in a queue to land for around 15 mins. The AV8 Bistro itself was fine with the numbers, lots of... More

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.
