Much more than a standard London gastropub, The Abingdon pairs modern, eclectic style with beautifully presented European dishes. The eye-catching U-shaped bar is a chic spot for counter dining, with a celebrated wine list featuring organic and biodynamic vintages on offer.

Always innovative and showcasing the finest seasonal ingredients from local suppliers, the Abingdon menu is full of modern European delicacies. Starters like parmesan soufflé with wild mushroom ragout are beautifully presented, while fresh seafood recipes include North Sea cod fillet with bubble and squeak cake, confit garlic sauce, aioli and clams. There are sharing specialities such as pave steak for two, and all kinds of premium sides.

The inventive recipes continue for dessert at The Abingdon in Kensington. There is lemon and goats' curd cheesecake with rosemary honey, and pistachio brownie with pistachio ice cream. The Abingdon is known for its carefully crafted wine list, with bottles from the old and new worlds represented.

An inventive, wonderfully executed update on the modern gastropub, The Abingdon also has a small al fresco seating area at the front. Gloucester Road Tube Station is a 4-minute drive away.

  • ((((( 22 May 2017 by Cj Wilson from Newport Beach

    The food was great and the vibe / atmosphere was perfect. Just enough music to be casual and just low enough volume to really have a great conversation.
