SquareMeal Review of
A quiet neighbourhood hostelry in the heart of ‘Abbeville Village’, The Abbeville has been given the full gastropub makeover. There’s mismatched furniture, painted bare-brick walls, French windows
and a mezzanine dining area. The menu doesn’t stray far from the tried and tested gastro stalwarts, but the kitchen isn’t shy of using up-to-the-minute flavours such as beef onglet given a burn
with horseradish paste and served with fries and spinach, or sea bream teamed with potatoes and chorizo. The bar menu has a forte in fried fish. A decent wine list is helpfully divided into
varietals, but drinkers who prefer the grain have well-kept beers (including Timothy Taylor Landlord) to pique their interest. The local Olivers and Emmas love the place, and it makes a great
venue for parties.
