(not that it was busy).... More

The last time I popped in here . . . sausages came with every meal. The Airman sits adjacent to a very busy roundabout and the noise can be distracting. Car parking is available but sitting outside is not recommended unless you love car and lorry fumes. You have to admit the management inside have worked extremely hard to make... More

We arrived as a family of 5 for Sunday lunch. It was towards the end of a busy service and the carvery was running low. The staff were so apologetic, the chief whipped up fresh Yorkshire puddings and made us chips as the potato were running low. The food was of a very high standard, completely homemade and fresh. Good... More

We had a few hours to spare while youngest son was at a nearby recording studio in Shefford. After popping into several venues in Shefford and being disappointed that they didn't serve food at all, or not after two, or smelt somewhat of wacky baccy, we stumbled across the Airman at Meppershall. What a welcome relief, they serve food all... More

Looks lovely from the outside but very tired on the inside. Was two other people in the restaurant. Food was very disappointing. Didn't have some of the menu to offer us. No I wouldn't visit again. On the plus side the service was good and polite but we were the only table eating ! Sorry Airman .
