Hi Damien, Thank you for leaving us your feedback. I am glad you had a nice time overall but I'm sorry to hear that you felt rushed. I believe this must have been a mis-communication, as we closed the kitchen at 9pm for starters/mains (desserts...More

I had dinner here with two friends on Saturday night and thought the food was amazing - a really interesting menu, and fantastic staff from front of house to the waiting staff. All in all a brilliant experience, and I can't wait to come back.

The area around Victoria can be a bit of a dining wasteland so we were pleased to have this recommended for a pre-theatre rendevouz. After the excesses of December, the sharing plates and vege options were welcome and perfect for our needs. The surroundings are...More

I would highly recommend the mac and cheese - it sounds like it would be boring but it has truffle, capers, and I think it was bits of dried kale too. It worked really well together and was super tasty! The staff were friendly and...More

Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,

I found the food quite good, but I wouldn't know anything about a specific Thanksgiving menu. I didn't think that Thanksgiving was celebrated in the U.K. Regardless, enjoy!
