The menu had too many meat items, not enough fish, no chicken and typical winter dishes e.g stew and beef pie

The Abbots Elm provide their guests with great food which is served by a friendly, efficient team. The only dilemma is whether to try something new from the menu or have a dish we have enjoyed before, either way we’ve never been disappointed.

The food is very nice and presented well, but I ordered steak and it was the smallest piece I have ever seen, a bit of a joke at £23. Staff were friendly and helpful. One thing that all of us didn’t like was no sooner had we finished our main courses the dessert menus were put in front of us. Twice we were asked if we wanted desserts after we said we would like a break between courses, but after about 15 minutes we felt we obliged to order them.There shouldn’t be a rush with food. We’ve eaten here on several occasions and we will go back, I just won’t order steak again.

A thoroughly enjoyable lunch. The rating for atmosphere is reflection of the low number or diners yesterday. On previous visits ,when the restaurant was busier, the atmosphere was much better.

Unfortunately the temperature distracted from our experience as it was too hot to eat inside. Having to get up and down to come inside to get drinks,and pay for each course was a shame but I understand the reason. I will certainly come again when we can eat in the dining room.
