I'm still can't comprehend the taste of their food. The is nothing wow about their food. We like the play ground though for our kid and watching planes.

Really enjoy this place watch the sun go down watch planes helicopters whilst having a bite to eat or a drink. Reasonably priced food and drink. Also play area for small children. Plenty of safe parking.

Service was slow, food average. Nice place to just be with friends, but surely not for the culinary expert.

Outside seating was fine with enough shade. Not noisy despite many parties with kids. Food was almost exactly as expected. Service was fine. The only negative was I found the service slow considering it was a Thursday midday and very few tables were occupied.

The staff are very friendly and helpful. Everyday of the week they have specials on their food. We visited on a Wednesday where there was a half price special on ribs and meat. I would not recommend ordering meat. The other food on the menu however is very good as we have visited many times before.

It is difficult to be objective about this one as this is probably the best place to sit outside, see activities on the apron and enjoy food with drinks while doing so. And often the pilots from there will end up between the guests. Food is good. If the wife and kids come along, they are catered for as well.... More

Our family loves to sit outside, eat a little, talk a little, some play in the playground, while some watch the aviation activities. The atmosphere is lively, young and old are happy here. The food has always been good, we love the Tigermoth pizza (with anchovies!). Service is usually good. Free wifi. Some evenings there is a live guitar player,... More
