Given where this cafe is located you will smell fumes if you sit on the patio and hear the engine noise of planes landing or taking off but this is why one would choose this place. The menu has been changed and the portions are sufficient and tasty. Anytime I'm in London this is my first choice because I love the atmosphere

I have always wanted to go here as it offers a little bit of a sideshow dimension with your meals. The restaurant is located next to the runways of the London airport and affords the diner a view of planes taking off and landing throughout the meal. The well windowed room gives diners a full view from any seat and gives another dimension of a large fair weather patio fronting on the runway. A view is great but the food has to be palpable and we can only report on our breakfast offering which included 2 eggs, home fries, 2 full pieces of toast and coffee. All were good although we would have liked ours a bit warmer. Should call for reservations particularly in good weather as the place becomes populated with flyers taking their planes up. A little hard to find as there is little to no signage. Not advertised very much and most Londoners would not know of its existence. Does a decent business with the Diamond aircraft people and the local flying club. Worth a return visit.
