“Change of ownership ,change of fortune.”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

I looked on Trip Advisor and noticed the the Airport restaurant was creeping up the table and thought we would give it a try. This probably has one of the best backdrops in the area and has never been taken advantage of. You can sit and have a meal watching light planes land and take off. Great for the whole family. The decor is now very nice and in keeping with the Art Deor building. Food and service were both good and the place was packed at the half term lunch time.
I will return hopefully when some music is being played. There is a good website that tells you about the events and menu.

“A little bit of the jazz age”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

I visited with my cousin for a late lunch/afternoon tea on wet afternoon. It's a wonderfully unique place to visit, and is full of nice touches, like period style sign and pleasant background jazz music. We had an interesting view over the airfield, and up to the Downs - I enjoy coming here on sunnier days too, when you can watch planes landing and taking off.

The teas were Clipper and were very good value, getting several cups of good tea for little over a £1. The food was also good value. I have a gigantic jacket with cheese and my cousin had a cream tea - both were delicious and nicely presented.

The service was polite and food arrived promptly, but our dirty plates were left on our table for about half an hour after we finished our food until we got up to leave, having finished our drinks, despite the cafe being quiet and several members of staff being on duty. Also making a basic enquiry about a dish became very confusing as the server spoke rather limited English, and we had quite a lot of difficulty understanding each other.

The ladies' toilets could also do with a refurbishment.

“Brilliant!”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Our first visit to this restaurant & it was fab. We arrived 12ish Sunday lunch time with my parents and my daughters who were back for a weekend from university. we were welcomed by very attentive & caring staff who helped us to get a table with a view. It was such a wonderful setting with the planes taking off & landing, the Art Deco setting with jazz pianist & such a lovely atmosphere & not to mention the amazing cakes!
We had baked potatoes with cheese or coronation chicken & it came with a very fresh salad followed by coffee cake, ginger cake & lemon cake !! Very reasonable prices & good quality food.... We then stood outside for a while to watch the planes, all in all a very good day for 3 generations.

“Geat food in a great setting”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

We always enjoyed going before but since the revamp it is amazing - packed out at 2pm spoke volumes. Our order was taken and a table became vacant, the food followed and was excellent - tables were cleared quickly and all staff very "on the ball". Beautifully decorated - amazing range of cakes which next time we must try - a real success!
