WE ARE ACCEPTING CARD PAYMENTS ONLY. PLEASE USE CONTACTLESS UP TO £45. Café facilities will be open 10am-4pm Tuesday to Sunday. We may close earlier on really bad weather days. When you arrive at the airfield you will have a choice of ordering from the new ‘Snack Shack’ (good weather days) or from the normal café bar. If you order from the snack shack you can consume this food in your car or in the small contained area with benches. Toilets for snack shack visitors are in the main building, by accessing the Flying Club entrance. Just come in and turn left! If you order from the café bar you can consume your food in the reduced seating area inside or on the regular patio. You will need to leave your name and number with us when you order. Social distancing must be adhered to when queuing. No bookings will be taken at present. You will need to dispose of your disposable crockery and cutlery in the bins provided. You must not bring your own food to consume on the premises, or have picnics in your car. You must not leave your car in the car park and leave the premises. Please bring a brolly if its raining as we don’t have an undercover queuing area at present! *You must email us on comptontracktrace@gmail.com when you arrive at the airfield providing the names of those in your party to comply with the Government track and trace policy*

Most of our visitors are in fact not pilots but people who just enjoy our stunning location, unrivalled views from the café and runway terrace, and of course great food. We recommend that you book for lunch.
