Lovely staff and atmosphere. The food was yummy. The kids had fun playing in the big outdoor grass area. Thanks, we will be back. 👍😊
The food was delicious and very well priced. The team at The Abbey were very friendly. We will definitely be going back.
Had made a reservation but arrived way to early. Was no problem at all, we where sited and served very welcoming. The Belgian beers are the best and the food was delicious too. Will be back definitely!
Great staff and presentation. Relaxed atmosphere and one of the beer selections in WA.
My husband and I went for an early Father's Day lunch with our two teenage sons. We had booked in advanced but we did not need as we were the only people in the whole restaurant which was odd for a Friday at 1 pm. There was an unexpected issue with staffing on the day and we had to wait to be seated and service was pretty slow. A few of the items that we wanted to order we could not have as they were special boards that should not have been up. A couple of beers my husband wanted to order were not on tap so he had to make a third choice. The food was ok although could have been hotter and just average pub food really - nothing special. It was cold and we asked for the barn windows to be closed, no fire was lit and no other heating and on a cold winters day I think a fire is a must. Good music but it was strange being the only people in the place and so lacked atmosphere. Prices were a bit on the expensive side for pub food. Don't think we will be rushing back in a hurry. If there were staffing issues then close the restaurant. The staff that were on were pleasant and friendly.
Breakfast in the Valley! Our friendly French waiter of a tasty breakfast and became our very knowledgeable, funny and personable wine tasting server. Apparently it's not his normal job, but it should be! His knowledge of wines, their background and development of the valley was encouraged by our group (who have good knowledge of grape growing and wines etc) which helped. Other cellar doors tend to dumb down their spiel to tourists who come for a drink, this young guy altered his info to suit us and our questions, which we enjoyed and that translated into us buying more wines!!
Been here before and had a good experience. Bit disappointed this time. Only some drinks on our order arrived, had to go and ask for the others🙁. There was pepper on my grandsons kids pizza and my husband told them. Staff were chatting about his complaint and the rest of our party was passing really poor form. I ate some of the pizza and it had pepper on it not soot from the pizza oven! My elderly father ordered a wine spritzer to be told they don’t do that what the heck, so we ordered a red wine and soda water and made our own. Sorry but we won’t be back anytime soon, feeling disappointed, we go out for a nice experience and that’s all I want. Your waitresses were all pleasant just lacked direction and experience I think.
Even though they had a chef walk out that morning, they were still under-staffed. The food suffered a bit because of the pressure in the kitchen, (meals being overcooked) but the kitchen staff did their best to keep up. We waited an hour after ordering to get our meals. I feel the meals and drinks are slightly overpriced for their quality and quantity. Staff did their best to keep smiling amid the pressure. Will come back, but hopefully the circumstances will be different, so that I can review it properly. Don't want this experience dampen what could be a great little spot for lunch.
Such a Gem in the Valley, everything was fabulous. We had the Sunday Night Roast Buffet which was really lovely & even includes a delicious dessert. Ticked all the boxes for taste, choice & price. Enjoyed every last mouthful & also awesome drink choices. Best bit though the awesome owners & staff who are so welcoming, made our night! Can't wait to go back.
One of my favourite places in the swan valley, off the main road so don't get the noise of the traffic. A bit warm sitting outside that day but my Chicken and Avocado burger was very nice and the lemon meringue pie was delicious along with the superb vanilla icecream. tried the Chenin blanc but preferred the semillion. great venue, lovely service and the staff were very attentive. we will be back
