We had a great time at The Abbey last night. The food was superb and the staff friendly and knowledgeable. Have been raving about the menu ever since. I had the golden egg, lamb and shared the Eaton mess and brownie. It was great to take up the opportunity of the discounted summer menu (Tuesdays in July) as I may not have tried it otherwise. Thanks for a lovely evening all round!

Lovely evening for my boyfriends birthday, the price was a bit steep even after the half price deal but we got what we paid for.

Lovely decor and delicious food. Very (perhaps a little too) attentive staff. It isn't cheap, but a great place for a special meal out.

Beautiful food and cocktail - but bread portions are insanely small!! Especially surprised compared to rest of portions.

Your cod with cous cous was terrible, cold dry and tasteless. Chicken starter in places was not thoroughly cooked, despite trying to say it's because you marinated in buttermilk! I am not surprised you had only a few tables occupied. The lamb with a few carrots was pathetic.

Two Main courses and two desserts plus one one small glass wine and a soft drink. £74 is not cheap and very expensive when coupled with food comments. My wife had ??chicken which was a large greyish leg (??chicken) with very little flesh and certainly a hen at best.

13 of us spent Father’s Day in a private dining room and we can honestly say it was fantastic, we were thoroughly looked after by the team and the food was superb! We will definitely be visiting again and spreading the word to our friends 10 out of 10

I booked a table here for my Mum's Birthday lunch which happened to be on a rainy Saturday. The warm welcome we received more than made up for the wet weather outside. The beautiful decor added to the loveliness of this place. I have been to many places with extensive menus, but little that really appeals, but here, with a small but innovative menu, there was not a single dish on offer that I would not have liked to try. We were not disappointed when the food arrived - delicious fare, beautifully presented. I was full by the end of the meal, but would go back in a heartbeat. Hats off to the team at The Abbey - you achieve what many restaurants do not... a wonderful experience, thank you.
