Great food and service in comfortable surroundings. The staff are friendly and don't rush you. We had a table for two and were there from 7-11 without any indication that the staff were ready to call time. Lloyd was our waiter and spot on with his attention to our needs.

Approximately 12 of us meeting up after work. Everybody commented on the quality of the food. The restaurant was busy with all tables around us full but we still received excellent service. Looking forward to returning; this time with my husband.

We've been coming to Abbys for ten years now - the staff are always friendly and helpful and it's a really nice relaxed vibe. Dined here with friends last week and chose from the main menu rather than tapas - really excellent food and wine, lovely service we all had a great night.

Dropped by Abby's without a reservation and enjoyed our lunch. My wife chose the Brie and bacon ciapini and asked for the bacon to be served well done/crispy) while I opted for the pumpkin soup. The ciapini was tasty but the bacon request seemed to have been forgotten. Not a big enough deal to send it back. My pumpkin soup... More

I visited on 22/10/2016 with a party of 19. We gave meal choices in advance and on the night there were no problems whatsoever. Staff were brilliant, friendly and provided great service. I honestly cannot fault this place I've been a number of times and haven't had a bad experience ever. The food is amazing, portions can sometimes look small... More

abbys always does great taste, both in our decor and on our menus. Our restaurant and function room brings together the finest ingredients – seafood landed little more than a mile away at Grimsby’s fishdocks; meat, cheese and vegetables sourced from caring local producers – add our own blend of magic, and serve it in fashionably elegant surroundings. That makes the perfect recipe for whatever you need, from a simple lunch ‘on the go’ to a business conference or a stylish and intimate dinner for two.

And having two elegant and contemporary venues together under one roof makes abbys the perfect place for every kind of social or business function.
