50% off at Abbey

Found on Minories in the East End of London, just a stone’s throw away from the likes of the Tower of London, the Old Billingsgate and the London Wall, Abbey is a fabulous bar and restaurant that makes for a delightful stop off spot amidst a day of exploration.

People come in for the fine drinks selection, but they stay for the scrumptious food, particularly when considering the superb tastecard discount offered to members who call in advance and produce their card upon arrival.

Beginning with one of the exquisite appetisers, where a flavoursome collection of aromatic lamb koftas came be found alongside a refreshing buffalo Mozzarella summer pea salad, diners can consider their palate suitably whetted for what’s to come.

Next up, the mouth-watering main courses on show leave very little to be desired, with a host of sumptuous dishes available for all that care to partake. Particularly enticing examples of such can be seen in the quintessentially British beer battered haddock, skin-on-chips and mushy pea combo, the succulent 28-day-aged 8oz ribeye steak, which comes complete with chips and a peppercorn sauce, and the gratifying cherry tomato and red onion tart, accompanied by fried capers and a dressed green salad.

Considering the wonderful savings, visitors are encouraged to conclude the meal in style with one of the divine desserts, such as the rich and sweet chocolate brownie and the enchanting New York Cheesecake, before dipping into the pocket in the enjoyment of a tipple or two from the extensive drinks list. A fantastic destination for both a casual evening out or for a celebration, Abbey offers a warm welcome to all.

    The chef prepared the steak exceptionally, however the cuts they ordered weren't the highest quality. "

    " I went to the Abbey on Maundy Thursday and, despite the well meaning staff, I wouldn't recommend it and I won't be going back.

    We were seated quickly but had to wait rather a long time for anyone to come and take our drinks order. When the waitress came she was extremely apologetic, which was appreciated and she did her best throughout our meal to look after us.

    However, the bar was out of stock of the wine we wanted, and also then didn't have some of the meals we ordered. The food took a long time to arrive, and when it did my food had clearly been sitting on the pass for some time as it was luke warm. My Dad's meal took another 5mins to come out after the rest of the table had received theirs. The food was average (by that time we were so hungry we were almost past caring!) I had to ask for some more of my side order as the ramekin it came with made up about 1 mouthful!

    We skipped desserts and just ordered hot drinks. My hot chocolate was more like a hot milk, utterly tasteless (well, it tasted of milk!). We kind of gave up by that point!

    During our meal/coffees, the restaurant was also being set up for the evening shift, and the noise of tables and chairs being moved about was extremely loud and annoying. Not a great atmosphere.

    It’s probably alright for a work lunch but the drinks are utterly extortionate (and I'm used to paying London prices). Won't be going back. "

  • "I went to Abbey yesterday with my BF for our anniversary dinner and everything was great. Nice atmosphere, the restaurant is a little bit separated from the bar, which is good as it's not noisy. Service was very good and food (starter, main & dessert) were really tasty. They had happy hours as well so our wine was half price. We would give it 9 out of 10 and will definitely come back again.
