We came for an evening meal and stumbled on a race night for charity event also. Very friendly staff, food was delicious and nothing was too much trouble especially for our fussy daughter! Locals very friendly and even stayed for some racing in great company. Wouldn't hesitate to return again

I booked very last minute for six adults and a two year old and we were not disappointed with the food and service. We have not been here for over a year and it seemed different. Warm welcome by all the staff and nothing was too much trouble - we had starters but to be honest we all regretted it... More

The reviews and images make it look nice, and when I arrived on a Wednesday evening it was empty. Tables were laid out nicely, and the food was okay, but less restaurant and more upmarket pub. Food was very generous portions, so you won't go hungry. I had the burger and great to see it looked home made but it... More

Thankyou for your feedback, we are in essence a pub that serves good quality and good value fresh food. This is what our customers demand and therefore it is what we provide! The wonderful dining area we boast here is an added bonus, and because we do not serve Michelin star food does not necessarily mean you shouldn't sit in... More

We left Anglesey Abbey to look for a Sunday lunch venue for our family . Us grandparents, son & daughter in law & 3 hungry grandsons -10, 7 & 5!

We just popped in from day out with our grandaughter who was fast alseep. The staff were freindly...barman left a colouring book and some crayons just in case she woke up. Food wasn't fast coming out but was well worth the wait. I had fish and chips and portion size was great...compliments to the chef. Will defiantly be coming back

I was nearly put off by their claim to be a gastro pub and this might be what is causing some of the more mediocre reviews - perhaps those reviewers were seeking one and it doesn't quite hit that description. I think I would describe it as a dining pub that is friendly and seems to serve tasty food. We... More

Thankyou we really appreciate your feedback, and I would agree with your opinion that we are a friendly dining pub which serves simple yet good quality traditional English food with fresh ingredients. Hope to have you back the next time you visit the Abbey :) More

Came to the restaurant today after a visit to Anglesey Abbey and was very impressed. There were 8 of us in our party (3 adults and 5 children). On arrival, the waiter rearranged the tables so we could all sit together. Service was quick, which with lots of hungry children, was a relief! Having said that, there were plenty of... More

We wanted to try somewhere local as opposed to going into Cambridge. Service by the barman was outstanding however when it came to food it was not good at all. Firstly, the Camembert started was not all melted only the outside was and it was only just warm. Then the seafood platter which was to include crab, anchovies, salmon, taramasalata,... More

Im very sorry that you were unhappy with your food, the camembert, king prawns and pitta bread simply should not have been cold and I will be informing my chef to pay closer attention to this. I was told that your table was unhappy with the anchovies being too salty however, I was not aware that tinned anchovies had been... More

Outrageously expensive, if you want to eat here, then go rob a bank first. 13 pounds for Fish and Chips, they really are taking the mick. It's hailed as a Pub and Restaurant, there is no "Pub" no bar to go get a drink, and no tables other than for the restaurant. Won't be going back.

Sorry that you think the prices are steep, Ill look into it and see what I can do. However with a small amount of observation one would find that we do in fact have a bar, as well as an entire half of the pub devoted for people to sit, eat and drink and do whatever they wish. This area... More

Booked for Mothers Day, arrived 30 minutes early so we could all have a drink before ordering. We were told our table wasn't ready so would we like a drink while we wait, the problem was there wasn't anywhere to sit apart from outside.

Terribly sorry there was nowhere in our bar area to sit whilst we prepared the restaurant for our second sitting, we were fully booked on Mothering Sunday and every single table was in use. We did specify that all bookings in this sitting started at 2:30 and we were very conscious of the time pressure we were under to reset... More
