The Abbotsford is a Bar and Restaurant full of character and charm. A typical "Olde Worlde" establishment with a wide selection of beers and Whiskies. The staff are very friendly and always willing to answer any questions. We visited a number of times during our stay and also had an excellent meal in the Upstairs restaurant.
This is a PROPER Bar with NO TVs or Music.

Thank Hubert J

Nice restaurant with welcoming staff and really good food. The price of the meal plus drinks was affordable and definitely worth it. The service was excellent and the staff were really helpful when asked about drink recommendations. I will definitely visit The Abbotsford restaurant again.

Went at tea time on a Saturday with 5 friends. Had booked in advance and ate in the restaurant upstairs in the pub. Was a nice cosy atmosphere the serving staff were attentive and friendly. A reasonable menu with regards choice and price. All ordered different meals and all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Wood recommend and would visit again
