When we arrived the place was fairly quiet so our order was taken with no problems. We ordered three adults meals and a kids meal. The kids meal was good value and included ice cream after. During our meal the place got fairly busy and the two staff on duty just could not keep up. One of them (the bigger... More

We had a very enjoyable meal in the restuarant. The food was well prepared and the service prompt and polite.the noise from the bar was a bit loud. It may have been better if the door between restuarant and bar was closed

my friend and I had lunch on a very wet Thursday and had good food, a warm welcome and good service. The bill was a pleasant surprise too! Very reasonable. A varied menu with plenty of choices. They catered for a non dairy request without a problem. The place was busy but the service was still prompt.

We had some friends staying and decided one night that we would eat at the Aboukir Restaurant. We booked a table and arrived at the time booked. Staff could have been a little more attentive, but eventually shown to our table. Had to ask if we could see a menu and order drinks. We ordered different meals and all came... More

Another great time at the Aboukir; good food, friendliness and smashing large room. I'm always assured a good time with a fun pub atmosphere, long lingering delicious evening meals and genuinely friendly locals. Thanks Dave.

Was here on a Friday night, the pub was really busy, but not full. The bar staff and customers were very friendly. A lot of regular customers but made us feel very welcome. The measures in the pub were very generous and very tasty. Would go back again and again.

Just back from the Aboukir having had a meal at the gable restaurant. We had booked a late meal time but this was no problem to the staff - they were excellent. The food was brilliant so full marks to the chef. The roast pheasant was done to a T and I'm now a convert. Atmosphere was excellent and nothing... More
