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.

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

    Excellence again. Great food, large and well appointed wine list and the staff was great as usual.

    Delightful service - everyone was friendly, observant, attentive, sensitive and efficient.
    First course - friend said soup was good. Another thought the liver pate excellent. I thought the poached salmon was pretty and tasty, but just a little too little :)
    Mains - I had the pork chop - very good. Friends enjoyed the tortellini.

    A bit disappointing my wife’s pasta was too thick and very strong taste of fennel

    This was my second visit to The Abingdon, and I was not disappointed. The menu was interesting and diverse, with plenty of choice without being overwhelming in volume. Presentation, and portion size were excellent, and the service attentive, courteous and prompt. The lamb which my guest and I both had was tender and the accompaniment delicious the little new potatoes were memorably moreish. I will be going back!

    Went for a business dinner. Food, Drinks, Ambience and Service were all great, however, I always find it a bit expensive and therefore not necessarily good value for money. Would still recommend to friends and colleagues though.
