Lovely

Came for the afternoon and for the tapas. The staff were very polite and friendly when booking via the phone and the same was true when we arrived. Clean and tidy establishment, plenty of choice on the tapas menu to work through. Service was very quick, the food looked very appetising and it... read more

You can always be sure when taking friends to this restaurant; the food will be of good quality, cooked freshly, no frozen rubbish. Very nice polite, professional staff, clean surroundings. Always a pleasure to eat here.

Decided to go for a family meal having been several times before and food and service always been ok. Decided to treat myself to a fillet steak, what a mistake. it was tough as old boots and was definitely not a fillet steak. Questioned the staff but they would not admit it was not a fillet. Well, I have never... More

Met some friends for lunch which was lovely but shocked and very disappointed to pay £10 for five soda waters. Expected to pay something but feel this is well overpriced when buying food & wine. Not even ice and a slice with our first drinks.

This was our first visit to Abby's but I'm sure it won't be our last. . We both ordered the full English breakfast, which came with 2 Lincolnshire sausages, bacon, baked beans, mushrooms, hashbrown, egg and tomato as well as a cup of tea or coffee AND a glass of juice - all for just £7! The food was excellent... More

The staff were warm and welcoming and we received our drinks order quickly. We highly recommend the Abbys Rose! Two of us ordered steak and the other two, the chicken. When the orders arrived,the steaks were medium... More

Appalling and illegal attempt by Manager to disguise undercooked chicken as a bacon filling that the owner, Sue Parry, had substituted for the published menu option of Seared Chicken Breast with a Brie and Cranberry filling. My 84 year old mother, who eats chicken as her primary source of meat and has done so for most of her life ,... More

Julie I am disappointed to hear that your Mum had a problem with her chicken dish when you visited Abbys. As we use all fresh produce in our kitchen, occasionally we need to change a dish, I am sorry that on this occasion you were not told at the time of ordering, that the filling for the chicken had changed...

I love the panini's here, particularly the garlic cheese bacon tomato and mushroom one! The ambience is calm and pleasant and the food is filling without being stodgy.
