Restaurant description

Much more than a standard London restaurant, 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 the cheddar & spinach soufflé with wild mushroom ragout are beautifully presented, while fresh seafood recipes are also on offer with a seasonal twist. In addition, there are sharing specialities such as pave steak for 2, and all kinds of premium sides.

The inventive recipes continue for dessert at The Abingdon in Kensington. The Abingdon is also 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.

    We’ve eaten here several times now and the standard is always very high. The service is wonderful, all our meals have always been delicious with beautifully balanced flavours, and although a pub, it’s never too loud to hear your dining partner. Most recently we attended for NYE dinner and it was wonderful to see the standards were maintained on such a busy night. Curried parsnip croquettes were outstanding, as was the crab and squid ink tortellini (we’ve had these on two occasions and both were outstanding). The potato and truffle pies were unusual but were delightful and light in texture, packed full of flavour. The pork chop never disappoints, and the steak and roast chicken were fantastic. We had guests from Australia and they were delighted with their meals. We shall return again and again

    The Abingdon was excellent. Best Sunday lunch I’ve had in years. The staff were attentive and professional, and we were delighted to be able to take our little dog along with us. The staff even provided a bowl of water for our pooch. I would highly recommend The Abingdon..
