This place is great. Super friendly basic pub, simple but full bar, with really lovely staff. They have basic cocktails on the go, but they're mostly a beer, cider (bottled and big range on tap) and spirits kind of joint, ignoring fancy things. It's long and kind of thin, with a beer garden out of the back, with a rather lovely terrace higher up.

I ended up here for dancing, to great pop punk...more

Solid pub, food, beer and vibe. The menu is phenomenal and so is the Sunday roast. Service is very casual and friendly.more

My girlfriend and I just moved here from Australia and are fortunate enough to have the Abbey as our local. The selection of beers and ciders on tap is great (you can actually get a cold well carbonated ale which is pretty rare), not to mention the huge of range of bottled beers.

We have never been disappointed with the food. The decor is very cool and the music is great!more

Soooo close to 5 stars! The atmosphere is chill, the garden and upper terrace are absolutely perfect with great comfort food and craft beers.

The only complaint I have that they don't have the option to run a tab, which means you have to close out every single round. Very annoying after a couple of rounds.

With everything else on point, it's hard to penalize them too much for a failing...more

The Abbey Tavern is one of those gold-standard British pubs that I would meet friends at. It's not touristy but it's not such an old man-pub that I feel out of place by not knowing every bartender's name. The perfect blend of the two.

It's also gigantic, with a large open space as you walk in and long wooden bar, a beer garden in the back and a surprise semi-hidden upper deck of this garden...more
