Visited last week with a friend and had a really nice evening here. Tapas menu was reasonable - 6 tapas for 22 pounds. Some dishes were admittedly better than others and I sent one dish back to the kitchen as I felt it was not warm enough. It was replaced with an apology so no problem. Menu is extensive -... More

Lunchtime at Abbys saw a somewhat chaotic service, although the waiter and waitress were pleasant. The food, as ever, was of a decent quality although over priced.

Went for my birthday meal. Had three courses. Not a single thing could be faulted. It was just simple quality food, cooked perfectly. Our server even came back to our table and told us what we ordered would be cheaper off the BOGOF menu. I would come back again without a doubt and would recommend it to anyone.

Great with nest and lovely food off a splendid menu that changes on a regular basis but for me it has to be the tapas everything the chef excels himself

You know that phrase less is more... Don't let the serving dishes with tapas fool you into thinking 'that'll never fill me up'. How mistaken you'll be. Prices are keen, service and staff always excellent. Never have any reason not to go back for a return meal anytime. And the food is awesome ...

Great for lunch - super menu and food - lovely surroundings and a great bUZZ! You need to book as they get full very quickly - I had veggie wraps and my friend had Thai fish cakes - small portion but it was very large .

Description
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.
