First time here since it became Skillets. Totally grim. Lovely member of staff showed us and our very small dog to a seat in the bar and got our drinks which is all we wanted. Another poor woman was then sent 'by the manager' to make us move to a totally empty room set out as a dining room in... More

I had not been to the Crown and Thistle since the Gallery changed to Skillets....and i wish i had left it that way. The service was ok to start with and the starters were ok, between the 4 of us we ordered 2 Steaks and 2 Burgers, the Steaks were both ordered Med-Rare and were most definitely Well Done- Burnt!...

The food here is good and reasonably priced and the service is friendly. However, the decor is a little bit tired and it was really quiet so there wasn't much of an atmosphere.

We had purchased a voucher and went along with trepidation having read the reviews on here. However, we were very impressed. Food was quickly delivered, it was of excellent quality and service was good. Drinks were reasonably priced. Will definitely recommend to others and we have purchased other vouchers.

Awful food and service. Cold restaurant. Veggie 'Gourmet' burger was just feta cheese, one slice of tomato and some iceburg letuce.....surely that's a cheese sandwich?? Beef burger was under cooked, Macdonalds burgers are better!

Before I begin my review I feel I need to state that this newly revamped restaurant (formerly Gallery) calling itself Skillets advertises itself as a gourmet steaks and burgers restaurant. Friday night in April in Abingdon with 4 friends we decided to try the new Skillets, sadly we all wished we hadn't. Two of us had brie starter which was... More

Having heard a new steak restaurant was opening in town, me and a group of friends decided to go there on a lads night out. As we are all massive steak fans we were looking forward to it but were sorely disappointed. Upon arrival we were shown through into the restaurant which was virtually empty, which was surprising as you... More
