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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.
