Lovely

I haven't eaten here for a while and I ask myself why? The service is excellent and the food is good. The homemade soup was delicious and the salad lovely and fresh and beautifully presented.

Visited this restaurant with friends and ordered the 2 for 1 menu which was average but over the top. The service was extremely slow as they had a number of big parties in so if you book be prepared to wait an hour like we had too for your meal to arrive. The food was ok but we had the... More

Wether it's a special occasion or an impromptu lunch Abby's meals are delicious. We have been for Christmas lunch and it was so relaxing, nothing was too much trouble and the staff are very friendly. They don't rush you. The tapas menu has so many dishes it's hard to choose. Great if there's a few in your party as you... More

The starter was the chicken, mozzarella and parma ham terrine, which I thought was delicious but the accompanying onion marmalade was too sweet for my partner. Then I had seared chicken breast for...

Attended with friends and we all ordered different starters and mains from an extensive menu for example scallops, sea bass , steaks, lamb shanks, pasta, moussaka. All the food was well presented, tasted lovely and was served piping hot at the same time. The staff were friendly and attentive and drinks and other service came promptly. There is a good... More

Had a lovely Mothers Day meal at Abbys today. Excellent food, pleasant ambience, friendly staff and good service. The kitchen is open to customers to see into which is unusual and gives you confidence that they are not afraid of customers seeing their food being prepared and served.
