Aviator Café Deli

Ashbourne's Newest Café Deli

Welcome to the Aviator Café Deli at Darley Moor Airfield near Ashbourne.  We offer an exceptional 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, 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 coffee & cake, if you’re a pilot, please PPR, then pop in for a snack and a cool drink.
