I really enjoyed the time I spent at The Abbey and will go back again. The staff were friendly and efficient. The roof terrace is a lovely spot to chill and enjoy some food and a cider on a summer's day. As a Canadian, I jumped at the chance to enjoy a poutine (chips, cheese and gravy). I regretted it immediately. I am not picky about cheese and gravy on chips in anyway, so I was shocked that...more

The Abbey Tavern is one of my all-time favourite pubs in all of London. A cool, funky vibe, wonderful ambience, great service, and really killer food all combine to make some sort of shimmering, invincible robo-pub where everything rocks.

The garden in back is my very favourite things about The Abbey. They've got a wonderful, large street-level area with big wooden picnic tables and...more
