A very rare treat to go out for a meal with my husband and so we thought we would push the boat out and go to the Broad Face. So was pleasantly surprised by the bill at the end which was nowhere near as much as I would have expected for the quality of the food.

Excellent quality steak, cooked to perfection, which is rarer than it should be but I was confident about ordering it after reading the reviews here, I was not disappointed, served with a mountain of chips but also salad and tender, but not overcooked, vegetables, such a nice surprise. The Crème Brulee was also beautiful.

The pub and restaurant were both very quiet, I hope it isn't always that quiet because the food and service were brilliant and it would be a huge shame if Abingdon lost this calibre of restaurant.

Saturday evening celebrating a birthday with my parents. We all had steaks - all perfectly cooked and the Chateaubriand in particular was incredible. Excellent presentation, attentive and friendly staff, nice bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon to accompany. For such high standards of food and service very reasonable prices. Will definitely return.

Went here with my partner on a friday night a couple of weeks ago and we had an absolutely excellent meal. We had the cote de boeuf which was just sensational - one of the best meals ever. We could have been in France it was so perfectly cooked - the chips and the peppercorn sauce were to die for. Great service too. Really hope more people try it as they do a great job and the food is excellent quality, it really stands out over the other places in Abingdon. Thanks for a great meal - we will be back!! :)

We went to The Broad Face as a family for my daughters birthday, although had not mentioned this to the staff. There were six of us and between us had a wide variety of starters, main courses and puddings. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. My son and daughter shared Chateau Briand which was perfectly cooked and melted in the mouth. As did my beef cheek, it was so moist and delicious. Staff were friendly and helpful. We were pleasantly surprised by the bill as well. The highlight of the evening however was when the puddings arrived. Someone had obviously picked up it was my daughters birthday and a pudding arrived, complete with Happy Birthday written in chocolate on the plate and a candle despite her not ordering a pudding. She was thrilled and it nicely topped off a lovely evening.

Food was excellent and, very importantly for me at least piping hot when it should have been - excellent service and nice people
