20 years (plus) is too long for a reunion, but we did this in the Abbotsford. Just an evening in the bar, but we were made very welcome, with great beers in the Copper Bar, and the fire burning in the grate. Just a brilliant, relaxing evening. Thanks Abbotsford.

This hotel was extremely welcoming. Good food and the room was a very comfortable and spacious. My husband has Parkinsons and the staff couldn't have been more helpful and caring. Would certainly return.

This is a real gem of a place with friendly staff and a wonderful selection of meals and wines. We have stayed overnight on occasion but on Saturday we were looking for a quiet meal for 2.

We visited this venue on our recent trip to the UK and were amazed at the character and charm of this establishment. Polished copper bar and tables immediately draw your eye upon entering the hotel and the charm continues throughout the building.
