A lovely lunch in a great place with friendly, efficient staff. And a water bowl for the dog - what more could you want?

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

The landlord and staff made us feel so welcome and the food was amazing. I had steak which was melt in the mouth. My boyfriend had 'the best liver he has ever had' and my daughter had the trout which she hasn't stopped talking about! We would like to go back when it's cold outside and when the fire is lit!

Came here for dinner a few nights ago with my wife, asked for two 250ml glasses of Malbec on arrival - didn't see the bottle handled by the rather pushy female bartender but according to the website this is from Chamuyo in Chile, widely available on the web at under a tenner. The food was excellent, though served by a girl who walked around scratching her bottom, and the wine started out quite pleasant but went a bit sharp and wasn't good to finish. So far so OK'ish. Then came the bill, with an astounding £11,15 each for the two glasses of wine. Now by any standard this is extremely high, so I queried it but was told that's what it cost. I said "Well we will never come here again!" at which point a white-coated male member of staff arrived from the kitchen and became loud, abusive and embarrassingly rude saying "You horrible man, go away!", "You revolting person, go away!" and finally pointing to my wife, who had said to me "Leave it - let 's just go" he said "That's his stupid wife, pay no attention". Needless to say, we will certainly never go back there again. A rip-off wine price followed by extraordinary rudeness from the staff is not for us.
