Taking friends out for a trip round the countryside, wife found this place and what a delight. Right in the glightline fir the aviation enthusiast & children alike. Good menu choices, food was excellent and all very reasonably priced. Would certainly visit again

The site of AV8 is the selling point on the airfield at an old RAF station amongst private plane and helicopter bases plus the commercial airline dismantlers makes for an interesting spot for food and drink. Good range of hot and cold drinks plus some...More

We promised ourselves a visit here when we came across Kemble Airport by accident a couple of years ago....could not believe we were seeing Boeing 747's on the edge of the Cotswolds. So whilst staying for long weekend in Cirencester, we promised ourselves a lunch...More

Just had about the nicest take-away scampi ever from AV8. Fortunate enough to be treated by my employer to lunch on a regular basis and so when the call went out; "Where shall we eat from today?" - I suggested AV8. The scampi was spot-on,...More

We saw the signs for this cafe as we laughingly drove past Cotswold 'International' Airport yesterday... and couldn't resist popping in on our way home today. The menus are fairly traditional cafe offerings - baguettes, baked potatoes, ploughman's and ham/egg/chips. But the setting is great,...More

We visited every day when studying at a nearby establishment the food and service were good and despite a large group all good was out in a timely manner. A good selection and great price.

Have previously reviewed and recommended especially for food allergies. Have taken grandchildren there twice this week. The food is really good and children love it. The staff are helpful and friendly. Cannot recommend too highly for a value lunch with children.

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.
