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

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

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.
