Flew in on a glorious summer day and enjoyed a perfectly cooked light lunch of sea bass with chorizo, new potatoes, green beans and tiny black olives. This is a gem of a restaurant, with excellent facilities and food cooked with flair and attention to detail. The flying community is particularly welcomed, and the early morning bacon muffin or baguette... More

Just returned from Sunday breakfast at the Apron. Great food and service. Lovely location for a bit of plane spotting. The place is modern and clean. A great find. We'll be back!

Always have great tasting and very well presented food served by lovely girls here. It is a shame this place is not open in the evenings with a bar as I am sure it would be a huge success. You never have to worry what the food is going to be like as it is consistently of an extremely high... More

A hidden gem. Lovely food, attentive staff & great views. We popped in for breakfast & thoroughly enjoyed the laid back atmosphere whilst we watched the planes.

Went for lunch after various recommendations and we weren't disappointed. The staff were warm and inviting, the room looked clean and fresh and the food was excellent. We will definitely visit again.

Wow what a great little place, not what we expected. Great location sit watching planes come and go whilst you eat lunch. Food was very good, minestrone soup or poached egg with mackerel and asparagus for starters. Followed with a beef curry with rice ( I asked if it was hot and was told it had a kick - it... More

What a gem . We went with the grandparents for Sunday lunch and was pleasantly surprised to find a fine dining experience at an airport! We were split between the Lamb and the Duck , both were excellent . Six portions of Beautiful Bakewell tart to finish off . Well worth a visit .

The Apron put on lunch for my mother's 90th for 28 people and the food and service were excellent. I look forward to eating at the Apron again and soon. I will spread the word!

The food at this small restaurant is comparable to most top class establishments. It is only a small place just off the A1 at Gamston Airport, seating maybe 20/30 people booking is highly recommended. The furniture is simplistic but modern and the place is extremely clean. Front of staff were 2 young women who were very polite, helpful and cheerful... More
