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.

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.

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.

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
