Had a lovely meal at the Abbots Elm this Saturday, 9 of us enjoyed some excellent food. What I’d call proper cooking, fresh local ingredients, obviously cooked from scratch with skill and care. Lovely service and a warm welcome. Thoroughly recommend.
Good value evening food
We have dined at the Abbotts Elm many times and we are never disappointed. Thanks to a great team!
Your Scotch Egg has entered into legend in Vienna! your juggling was slightly less impressive but entertaining ;) I'm guessing you will know whose written this review now haha Excellent night in every aspect Thank you
Excellent festive lunch for 14 ladies!
A very enjoyable evening with excellent food (again).
This was our third visit and unfortunately this time the food was extremely sub standard, we ordered same starters as previously ie scotch egg , zero dressing on the board just an egg and a pot of aioli, the turkey was dry and we do not like veg already on a plate a separate dish would have been nice, again minimal veg offered expected more for the price, unfortunately due to disappointing meal no further visits.
As always a fantastic evening. Fabulous food- thank you Julia and brilliant service - thank you a John and team. We took two friends who loved it and will be back I’m sure.
Really great lunch and the staff were very friendly and efficient
Lovely refurbished surroundings on a listed building, warm and cosy atmosphere. Food was very well presented and cooked. We had 3 separate choices over the 3 starters and main courses with each of the 3 of us getting a lovely meal. We will be going back to support local business.
the food is always good here and the staff are excellent. One minor point we had been told we had to preorder from the festive menu which was not a problem for all but one who chose on the day from the a la carte BUT the staff working were unaware that we had pre ordered. It was soon sorted out however but just a minor point we though should be mentioned
Excellent food, very good service and lovely atmosphere. I’ve eaten here before and I’ll be coming back again. The Abbots Elm never fails to deliver.
Brilliant Sunday/ Birthday lunch for 10, including two sub- two year olds. Classic Sunday roast dinner and great service.
With 1 Coeliac & 3 vegetarians at our table of 6. We were nicely catered for. Thank you. Food was delicious, and a great variety of drinks. Only 1 criticism was the Vegetarian Tarte tatin albeit absolutley tasty was a bit lonely on the plate, could have done with vegetables included especially for the price. All other dishes came with veg/potatoes or chips. We’ll be back though. Thank you
Would not go anywhere else for a special occasion. Excellent varied menu. Relaxed and comfortable.
Very pleasant meal. Will go back again
Having had lunch at the restaurant I was already impressed but the standard of dinner was absolutely superb. We bought friends who had never been before and they will be returning as they loved it. Thank you.
Relaxing business stop over. Great service and had an excellent dinner and breakfast. The food made the difference for me: very good. Could do with more sockets in the room, but not exactly a show stopper as a spare extension lead was provided.
Warm, inviting and professional. Top quality food with excellent service every time. I highly recommend The Abbots Elm
Everything was lovely and thanks for a great evening
Excellent food and reasonably priced. Have always had good food here and will continue to recommend and use. My guest was so impressed he is about to arrange his Christmas Party for 20 people at this restaurant.
Lovely atmosphere, extremely friendly staff and wonderful food.
Very welcoming staff and pleasant atmosphere.
