Aviator Café Deli

Ashbourne's Newest Café Deli

Welcome to the Aviator Café Deli at Darley Moor Airfield near Ashbourne.  Offering an interesting range of locally sourced home-prepared menus using our fantastic selection of regional deli produce.  We serve all of this from a hilltop location, overlooking the gateway to the Derbyshire Peak District and one of the UK’s most popular national parks.

The Aviator is an ideal venue for for you to relax a while, whilst enjoying some of the best produce the area has to offer.  Looking for somewhere new for your weekly catch up? Why not book a table and drop in after a day out in Ashbourne.  Travelling to or from the Peak District? Then break your journey with a light bite or a full meal.  If you’re a cyclist or walker, make us your café stop for tea & medals, if you’re a pilot, please PPR, then pop in for a roll and a cool drink.
