First time as only visit St Albans sporadically. It was absolutely fabulous, beautiful food, excellent service. Atmosphere was a bit flat but it was a Wednesday so to be expected. I would highly recommend for anybody looking for a restaurant in St Albans.

Had a really good night at the Abbey restaurant. Great food, good wine, excellent friendly service. Good table and the music was not too loud, so all six of us could converse easily. We will be back!

I took my wife here for an anniversary dinner. The food was brilliant and I couldn't fault what was served to us one bit. We have recommended the restaurant to friends already. I found the music choice a little baffling in some ways where we are eating a lovely romantic meal and some rap music comes on so that would be my only comment. Otherwise a fantastic place.

Had a great experience, the service was fantastic, very friendly, the food was lovely & nice atmosphere. Had the bottomless brunch for £35 which included two courses and 2 hours of Prosecco, very good value.

Very disappointing. Second visit for a birthday. Found the requirement to pay a deposit and then pre choose starter and mains very poor. On the evening one of the staters did not include a key ingredient. This was not disclosed despite being told the pre order ensured all ingredients / dishes were available. We had to advise could not taste the shaved truffle to be told it was not available. Very very poor this should have been advised and not served in the hope the missing ingredient was not noticed. This was dishonest. Very very disappointed.

Really delicious, high-quality food, attentive and caring service from the staff. I mentioned on the booking that we were celebrating an anniversary, and the staff brought us a glass of champagne each upon arrival - such a thoughtful touch. 50% discount offer on Tuesdays is an absolute no-brainer. We'll be going every month!

Beautiful little restaurant with friendly staff and really good quality food. Went for the Prosecco brunch and it was wonderful, nice and quiet and the servers didn’t badger us or make us feel rushed. Would definitely recommend.

Arrived at the restaurant to find it closed. After searching my emails I found an email from the restaurant in my junk folder explaining that due to a gas leak they wouldn’t be able to open for the evening. Understandably this is an issue that couldn’t be helped but it would have helped to received a phone call to inform me. This is the 2nd time The Abbey have cancelled a reservation. The first instance being last summer and a burst pipe.

Lovely service. Went on a Tuesday night, was a bit quiet to start with, but that's to be expected for a Tuesday in October. Service was great, food was good - different, clearly thought went in to the menu. Slight quibble is that I'm pescatarian and teetotal, so there were things on the menu I couldn't order, e.g. with wine sauces etc, but if it weren't for that, would have rated the food 5*.

We held our annual Directors' dinner upstairs in the private dining room for and it was very successful. The food was superb and service excellent. The horseshoe shaped table (which was my request) made the room a bit squashed so would recommend one big table to others. Ideal for a private dinner gathering.

We had a delicious two course meal, taking advantage of the excellent Tuesday discount. Service was warm and friendly. Already planning a return visit and would happily recommend.
