We had a pre dinner drink on both the Friday and Saturday of our stay and felt the service was extremely proffesional whilst still being friendly asking about the sites we'd seen that day. A comfortable bar area and good service the bar is great whether you are staying at the Abode or not.

Very pleasant afternoon tea. Sandwiches were nice with a good selection plus very fresh. Plenty of cakes that we couldn't finish but they boxes them up without us asking and we took them home. We had champagne which just adds touch of occasion although we weren't celebrating anything. The staff were attentive and polite. The champagne bar in the Abode... More

Nice pleasant Bar. Waiter must have been new, despite saying had booking for afternoon tea had to tell him several times that we had booked!! Did not explain to us what was included in the price. My daughter had booked this for my birthday. Tea extremely weak, sandwiches average, scones and cakes nice. Was a very chilly day and quite... More

We booked for 3.15 afternoon tea on Christmas Eve, a treat for my visiting mother in law. We arrived early, but were seated immediately, surroundings pretty quiet for this time of day. Once we (a party of 3) ordered; one cream tea and two sparkling wine cream teas, we did not have to wait for too long for drinks and... More

We had a great time at Abode's Champagne Bar. We ordered the champagne afternoon tea for two (vegetarian). The sandwiches were delicious, the scones were great (just the right size) and the cakes were brilliant. The champagne was superb. It was a great atmosphere in hotel and it was nice to enjoy our tea and watch everything going on. The... More

We had afternoon tea at the Abode last weekend. The tea itself was pleasant, but average. The bar staff were run off their feet, but polite and helpful. The Reception staff (there appeared to be about 5 of them) stood or slouched around watching everyone else work, without even clearing a table. I observed two guests speak to them in... More

Looked on their website and which indicated that their Full English Tea was fully booked so I rang up only to be told it wasn't true and they had plenty of space! So I advise always ring when you need to book a table. The tea was very well presented and was delicious, sandwiches were freshly made, scones a bit... More

The room and the atmosphere was great and it was nice to either come for a drink before dinner or nightcap at end of the evening. We stayed at the abode for two nights and went the champagne bar both nights. The first night, service was slow despite being 3 servers in the room. There was a man in there... More
