The food was splendid but the only accompaniment to the main course was chips which did not compliment the dish. I would have preferred new potatoes, mash or dauphinoise.

I took my boyfriend here for an early birthday treat and we loved it! Beautiful conservatory, bright and airy with lovely rustic design. Food was delicious, we had a la carte menu which has good options. Service was friendly and made us feel relaxed.

We enjoyed the occasion and decor to celebrate my daughters A levels but I ordered lamb and it was red raw like rare beef vs cooked pink as lamb usually is and I actually like it well done ( I was not asked how I liked it) Also the lamb was very chewy and fatty and so I spat out the 2 mouthfuls I actually tried to eat . I did not send it back as by now my family had eaten half theirs and I would have been eating alone, also the waitress did not return to our table so I had no chance to say I was not happy . No one came to ask if our meal was ok and when collecting plates it was clear I hadn’t eaten mine ( with 2 spat out lumps) and the girl did not ask why . Also no nice seasoning or sauces with the beef or lamb so just a piece of meat .with veg and trimmings .i thought at £25 for the meat it would have been an excellent piece cooked with care and some kind of seasoning etc. I have a wide circle of friends in ST A who eat out regulatory and sadly I will not be recommending the Abbey to them . The Ivy is far superior . Even if the waitress had given me chance to say why I hadn’t eaten my lamb and refunded it , I would have felt better but with avoidance by the staff, I chose not to have any more wine or dessert and shan’t be returning . What a wasted opportunity to delight my family and build a local reputation .

The meal was lovely but it is overpriced and the damp smell of the toilets is noticeable when sitting at the table.
