Lovely atmosphere, helpful staff, food of high quality and reasonably priced.
Lovely village and a great place to eat in all seasons with superb food, friendly and pleasant staff.
Good menu with nicely cooked food and well presented
Once again absolutely amazing food, myself and my wife have been here a fair few times and must say it’s probably one of our favourite eating place, great food great service.
A lovely meal in a great pub. I can't fault it at all.
The menu had too many meat items, not enough fish, no chicken and typical winter dishes e.g stew and beef pie
Excellent food and service
Your furnishings need some tlc
Fantastic food and service. Would definitely recommend for a birthday or anniversary dinner. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Would eat here again.
A great place for lunch
Excellent meal in lovely surroundings served by very pleasant staff.
Went for Sunday lunch with my partner - great food, reasonably priced. Well worth a visit 👍🏻
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.
Lovely variety on menu
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.
Excellent lunch, served "with a smile"
Really lovely place will definitely be back.
We had a very enjoyable and tasty meal. It was nicely cooked and well presented. There was a good selection of dishes on the menu.
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.
