Excellent venue and great service! We had a wedding reception at The Abbey with over 200 guests attending and were looked after very well. Sanjay and his team are very professional and accommodating and the food was excellent. Highly recommended to anyone considering hosting an event at the Abbey.

Andy and the crew were just great. We had the ceremony in their rose garden, and reception in the Abbey. I have had so many comments on the venue and the food, it was all just lovely. Thank you to the Abbey for making our day perfect
