The Apron Café and Bakery

The Apron Café and Bakery provides a unique dining experience to Nottinghamshire residents or local air enthusiasts and travellers. As the name suggests, it’s situated on the apron of Retford Gamston Airport and provides wonderful views over the runway and the countryside beyond. The Apron is a great place to while away a few hours watching the planes take off and land while enjoying a nice lunch.

The Apron offers locally sourced, high quality seasonal ingredients to their breakfast and lunch menus. They cater for a variety of different tastes. Breakfasts combine pastries and snacks, with a full English! At lunchtime, you can grab a light bite such as homemade soups, quiches or sandwiches, or a more  substantial dish such as fish and chips, belly pork or a steak. Desserts include puddings or chocolate mousse or choux buns.

The bakery has brownies, sponge cakes, flapjacks or savoury items like sausage rolls or just a slice of sourdough toast.

A lovely spot to sit, have a snack and watch the planes come and go!
