Now more of a restaurant than a gastro pub, this is a pleasant and cheerful place which serves good food selected from an imaginative menu. Service is prompt and the bill quite reasonable by London standards.

This gastro pub gets a top vote from me. It is our local, it has very friendly staff, a great bar atmosphere, comfortable and loungy. Marvellous gin and tonics. The restaurant has a simple but very good menu. English/European/bit of Asian fusion.

We first ate at the Abingdon in January 2016 and were concerned the food might not be as good as remembered -- thankfully, that was not the case. My husband had not been feeling well and wanting to eat light ordered the smaller portion of...More

It's a nice place with a nice menu and my friend (who paid) had a delicious lunch. I had a fabulous starter (parmesan souffle thing, can't recall the menu name of it) but I mistakenly chose (unusually) to have a burger. I cannot express how...More

Hadn't been here for a couple of years but nothing's changed: excellent service, friendly attentive staff, relaxed atmosphere and good food and wine. Only fault the desserts are a bit bland

I hesitate to criticise on of my chum's favourite dives, and it's a fun, friendly place, but I was disappointed by the prices of the wines! There is a shortage of affordable wines available, and this is the kind of place that should offer a...More

Nice little pub, very stylish and cozy. Sat down for a beer after a day of shopping and for shelter from the rain. Good service.

Every time we come to London, we return to the Abingdon. For our wedding anniversary dinner, my husband offered any restaurant, and I picked the Abingdon without hesitation. We started with the duck spring roll appetizer which we could not share because it is so...More

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
