About Air Balloon

The Air Balloon was originally two ale houses and provided for the needs of the travellers before the days of licensing. Many Balloon ascents were made from about 1784 onwards, and one Walter Powell ascended from Malmesbury and disapppeared without trace about that time. No evidence is recorded, however that he landed here!

The Inn was next known as The Balloon in 1796 and recorded as the Air Balloon in 1802. It was owned as a part of Cowley Manor Estate until the early 20th Century. Current owners Greeneking acquired the Air Balloon in January 2004, after having a refurbishment in 2010 the character and charm is still catering for the needs of todays traveller, and is a busy stop off point for all walks of life. A very busy car park which used to be used as a drop off and pick up point is now being managed by a pay and display system thus ensuring that customers can park. All parking costs are redeemable against purchases made.

A small Cotswold stone built bar with inglenook fireplace and log burning stove plus leather sofas and chairs makes the bar the perfect place to enjoy a drink with friends. Open from 10am for tea and coffee.

A three tiered traditional restaurant seating 90 diners. With alcoves and cosy corners, the restaurant is perfect for an intimate meal for two, a family meal or a get together with friends.

Went to the Air Balloon for dinner and a few drinks with some friends. The pub is very welcoming, with friendly, helpful staff and a good selection of food on the menu (though they had run out of some items). The food was very nice - classic pub fayre, and fairly large portions, delivered pretty quickly by a very pleasant waitress.

All in all,quite enjoyable; something to please everyone and excellent value for money. We will certainly go back there.
