Shobdon airfield was opened in 1940 as a response to the needs of the war office to fight off the invasion plans. The airfield was originally called Pembridge Landing Ground and one of the first aircraft to be based there was the trusty Westland Lysander and it is this iconic Army support aircraft that the cafe’s list topping breakfast option is named after.

Pembridge landing ground was upgraded to a “proper” airfield in 1941 with the addition of a hard runway and at the same time it was renamed to Shobdon Airfield.

After the war the airfield was abandoned by the military and left to fall into disrepair, it was in the early 1960’s that the newly formed flying club was allowed use of the facilities and carries onto the present day.

The cafe is contained in the main clubhouse building, which must be one of Major Peter Norman Nissen’s famous constructions, and is open to the public 7 days a week throughout the year. A fine range of meals are available which appeal to all tastes. Shobdon Cafe is a popular destination for Cyclists, Motorcyclists, car clubs and aviation enthusiasts alike. There is a grassed outside seating & viewing area for when the great British weather permits. In addition there is an adjacent caravan and camping area, plus a licensed bar.

This cafe is well worth a visit and the culinary offering is of a high quality and at reasonable rates.
