The staff were wonderful. Kim and Andrew were great and Anna who looked after us on the night could not have been more attentive. The food and service was very good. The venue is formal and stylish.

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
