“Scruffy Owner”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Booked for a very special occasion. On arrival, we were shown to our table. The waiter was really friendly and looked after us extremely well. We all struggled to choose from the menu. The food was very nice but way way way over priced. Then , the owner turned up in jeans and tee-shirt. After spending hundreds of pounds for a very overpriced meal, all the owner wanted to do was drink at the bar and count money in his scruffs. How inconsiderate. If he expects people to pay so much money to dine at his establishment, then at least make an effort. Excellent waitors but avoid the owners !!

“Excellent Meal”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

Last week (Thu 27th March) I had to arrange dinner for 16 people for corporate guests visiting the island. I'd heard lots of great things about The Abbey, but I'd never actually be myself.

We were welcomed straight away by the host and thanked for making the booking. Arrival drinks were served promptly and then seated for dinner. The food was simply delicious, I can't fault the whole evening from start to finish and our guests enjoyed the whole experience, including the massive sticky toffee pudding for dessert :)

Wouldn't have any hesitation taking corporate clients or family there next time I'm planning an evening out.

Great work guys.

“Very good for that special occasion”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

An excellent, varied menu with specials board. Food cannot be faulted and service is unhurried, professional and polite. Nice ambience, lots of parking, always clean and welcoming. The only downside is the price - £25 for a main course plus £4 for a spoonful of mashed potato and another £4 for a few sprigs of spinach is a bit o. t. t. but they seem to get away with it so who's to say it's wrong?

“Excellent”
Reviewed December 21, 2013

Could be considered a pricier restaurant however we think it is excellent value for money, whether its for lunch or dinner.

Unusual menu which changes frequently. Courteous, professional staff without stuffiness.
