Visited tonight as we passed through and had a wonderful meal, great service and very friendly staff. We'll certainly be coming back again and would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant to anyone.

4 of us visited for Mother's Day. Could not fault anything. Each of our 3 courses were delicious. My partner particularly loved his soufflé first course (he's mentioned it once or twice, or maybe 10 times) Sinéad our waitress was lovely, pleasant and attentive. And to top it off, I was given a lovely mothers day gift..... a lovely touch.

Little ambiance in the place but perhaps... More

Hello, My Family and I had a most enjoyable Mother's Day meal at the Abbey Arms. The decor is lovely. The environment is relaxed. The food was good and the portions very generous. The service we we received from Sinead was attentive, friendly and efficient. She couldn't have done anymore. We will definitely visit again. It was most pleasant. Thank... More

This pub has just been refurbished and look good both inside and out. No issues with the food apart from the price, £10.95 for a very average portion size of scampi.

Visited this week, pub now nicely refurbished, staff friendly. Food, good choice/value. However I found the wash basins a little on the high side.

A couple of the meals were good especially the sunday roast. Starters - chicken wings - were lovely. Bad - People that came after us had their orders taken but we... More
