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.

    Food seems to have gone down in its standards. A medium steak came as rare. The steak was for two but the price in the menu was written as per person which is odd as you cannot order it for one. Its just deceptive as the price doubles when the bill comes. Ordered wine and were presented with a bottle that was different to the menu including the year but were told that its the same!!! From being an excellent dining experience its become very average

    All very easy

    The service was almost non existent, we had to wait a long time to get the menu after we let a member of staff know we were there, then went inside to get the menu ourselves, then had to wait again so long to actually be able to order that we left the place after having lost almost 45min of our time. Without anything to drink, not to even mention to eat. It's a shame as the last time we came to the Abingdon we had a great experience.

    Gaspacho was just perfect. Cheese souffle followed on a bed of spinach had great flavours. A great lunch. Just right.
