As always perfect food, lovely staff and a welcoming atmosphere. My 'go to' place to eat out. See you again soon!
Glad to say good quality is back to what we have come to expect from this excellent restaurant just fifteen minutes from St Ives, Cambridgeshire. Well done & “Thank You” for a most enjoyable lunch.
Another excellent meal. Thank you.
Good for "Special" occasions.
Food excellent as usual, however dissapointed to be sat in the front bar as it is not what we expected. It would have been nice to be given a choice as to whether we prefered the restaurant or bar.
Beautiful village pub, great food, great staff, very accommodating, thoroughly recommend!
lovely food and friendly service
Excellent food with good service.
Very good lunch, good serice, even my 90 year old mother loved the meal which is very rare, noted that dogs are allowed, will bring him for lunch next time.
A lovely Sunday lunch, highly recommended. Staff are very friendly and the tables aren't too close together so it was easy to chat to everyone on our table. Will go back again to sample more from their menu as I had trouble choosing! Thank you to all at The Abbots Elm for a super pre birthday lunch.

A lovely lunch in a great place with friendly, efficient staff. And a water bowl for the dog - what more could you want?
Another excellent, delicious meal with friends in a delightful pub restaurant
Another superb meal with typically excellent service on Wednesday night. It is hard to remember eating a better fillet steak than that which l had that evening.
I can't thank the Abbot's Elm staff and their manager John enough for an absolutely brilliant service and dining experience. Set menus were organised for my party of 15 people and the choice was superb. The staff were polite and the service was fantastic. Thank you so much for making the evening such a triumph. Kind regards Wendy
Enjoyable, unhurried and excellent food and service.
