We wanted something close to our hotel, the Ashburn, but wanted it to be really good- and we are picky. This family owed pub- restaurant was wonderful. We loved everything we ordered. Request a booth for the most comfortable seats and I would reserve .

We enjoyed the Abingdon very friendly staff and customers, a really buzzy place for a drink, and maybe eat if you fancy a meal.

I’ve been meaning to write a review of the Abingdon for some time but never got round to it. To my mind it’s one of the most pleasant gastro pubs in central London and in an area with surprisingly few good alternatives, especially mid-priced ones...More

The sunday lunch was sublime! I was utterly stunned at how beautiful the food was. Service was also so friendly and made us feel so welcome - I would recommend it highly

The food was absolutely scrumptious at the Abingdon. Their steaks are cooked to perfection, the decor and atmosphere is great. Likewise, the service is impeccable despite it being a busy dinner. My favourite part of the meal was their dessert though. Having lived in Yorkshire,...More

Just happened upon this restaurant after a long flight from the states. The specials were amazing, wonderful wine selection, and the atmosphere was very welcoming.

We recently went and were highly disappointed. This was a regular restaurant for us where we always had good creative food. Our last meal was very disappointing. The aubergine was too salty to eat and the cod was tasteless and poorly presented. Whatever happened to...More

Second time I’ve been here and I don’t think the menu has changed since my first visit - but that’s fine as the food is excellent and plentiful. It’s nice to experience simple food done really well rather than fancy food done badly. Dinner for...More

My wife and I enjoyed an intimate dinner for two at Abingdon. With a warm reception we were seated to a linen candle lit table. Starting with a tasty Prosecco our waiter Adam guided us through the menu. Pork belly and pork chops to die...More

Only 1 vegetarian main option which is disappointing. Especially when it's celeriac :( However, the roast broccoli side dish is delicious.

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

The eating area can be sectioned off I believe and it is an ideal wedding venue. Regrettably the facilities are in a basement down stairs, Hope this helps.

I don't remember seeing a child's menu. That said, we were 4 adults with a late dinner reservation and our biggest concern was that it took almost an hour for wine to be served and then even more time for the martini's... More
