Three friends and I stopped here for breakfast. Staff were friendly and the food was lovely. Bit of historical information about the pub on the wall which is an interesting read. Would stop again if I'm ever along that way.

Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are

I have my receipt and they did add 12.5 % service to the bill, but you are not required to pay that. However the service was good there so we chose to pay the total.
