Was quickly greeted and seated. Friendly staff. The menu was general pub food. Good food with good prices. If looking for something other than fast food try this place out.

On our way home to Indiana from vacation and was looking for something besides fast food for lunch. The Abbey was good! Not far from I 75. We would recommend!

If you love pub food, then come here. Trust your bartender, they have a java dark beer that is out of this world. The loaded chicken and stuffed chicken were really good. Those who want French cuisine go else where's, those who want a dark ale and good food, so and stay a while.

Went here for a Office Christmas party. I have the Buffalo chicken and enjoyed it, although I ate it too quick for my indigestion. I good place to go eat when you're in London.

Have eaten here many times and never have had a bad experience. The food is always correctly prepared and delicious. The service is friendly and always ask the right questions to ensure we get exactly what we want. Beyond doubt one of the best places in Eastern Kentucky to have a great dinner.

Waitress was cheerful and attentive despite the Wildcat basketball game on the TV in the bar area where we sat. It got a lot enthusiastic in there despite the fact that Kentucky was bludgeoning Arizona State. The food was a bit better than average bar food. We had opted for a burger and a Reuben so I can't comment on... More

The bison burger was a good lean option. Hubby got steak tips. He enjoyed those. Lots of options on the menu. From bar food to salads and crab cakes. We sat at the bar and the bartender was nice and attentive. We were passing through on our way to the lake. It's off the beaten path and worth the detour.... More
