Didn't know this place existed until a few of us bikers went there on a Sunday "ride-out". I was amazed at how many light aircraft were going in and out (it was a lovely afternoon mind) and how close we were to being airside. There...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.
