Phoned to see if a room was available at only a... More

Pathetically my parents felt unable to drive from Northumberland to Kent without an overnight stop and so chose Abbot's Elm due to its closeness to the A1. Personally I just sleep from the moment I get in the car until the moment the boot comes up hours later and then its 'Where's the walk?' Walking from this pub was easy... More

Five of us ate here last night for my Mothers birthday. We all have very different tastes. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food, the ambience and the wonderful service. Nothing was too much trouble even though the staff were very busy as both the restaurant and bar were full. No where matches the Abbot's Elm. We are never disappointed. Excellent.

The care that went into the preparation of the food was evident. The same went for the full English breakfast. The staff were so friendly and helpful. This is the standard... More
