The Abingdon has been in our family for 20 years, and in this time it’s established itself as one of the city’s best upmarket restaurants and wine bars.
Located in the heart of Kensington and with an elegant bar, private booths for up to six guests and an open, bustling dining area, The Abingdon provides the perfect environment for any occasion. Whether you’re planning a romantic dinner, a friendly gathering over drinks or an intimate business lunch, our cosy ambiance is the ideal setting to do it in.
"We are proud that our regulars regard us as their second home"
Our kitchen team strive to continually create innovative seasonal menus that showcase the best of British favourites. Quality produce is integral to each dish, and we’re proud to use local and independent suppliers.
As a regular haunt for many, we enjoy the task of maintaining a menu that is both new and exciting. However, in keeping with our neighbours, some things will never change… and alongside a glass of wine, you can always rely on us for a Pave Steak or our infamous Sticky Toffee Pudding! We can also cater to many different dietary requirements, so if you’re vegan or gluten-free, just let us know in advance and we’ll rustle up something delicious.
Peter - Owner
"Since we took over the Abingdon in 1998, our vision has always been to create a home away from home for our regulars. Some of which live close by and we see every day, some live on the other side of the world and we see once a year, but they all form a part of our Abingdon family"
Amicia - General Manager
"Having grown up in the hospitality industry, The Abingdon quickly became a second home and I feel this is also reflected in the atmosphere we have created. I feel a large part of its success stems from the familiar, yet professional service we provide and I love noticing a sense of community within our walls"
