I came here over 2 yrs ago, and thankfully, its improved. Portions still enormous and very good value. We only had 30mins to be back at the office and the friendly staff accommodated the 4 of us, including 3 large take-away meals in no time....More

I've been to the Old Abbey a few times, either for the good-value brekkie, or in my lunch-hour, and always come away feeling full ! The service is friendly, prices reasonable, and a nice selection of beers and ciders in bottles, with Krombacher on draught....More
