    We have been to the Abbey on multiple occasions, as it's our local, and always been happy with the food, drink and service. However... my wife wanted to treat me for my birthday today so took me to the Abbey for a meal.

    I ordered the steak, which I always have, and got... well I don't know what I got. The steak tasted off and my wife was nearly sick when she tried it. I told the lady at the bar, who immediately ordered me another one. This time I got an equally off tasting steak, but this time no mushrooms or tomato, which I should have got. So half a meal this time.

    I could not eat the steak, so left it, but having been asked if everything was OK, which I replied "no". Nothing was done. I have therefore paid £8.00 for a plate of chips and salad. I feel totally disappointed and fobbed off. Not a refund or drink or different meal offered. What a crap birthday courtesy of the Abbey, so off home to order a pizza.

    A good family pub that has a good welcome for everyone. Huge portions of food available including Sunday lunch. Well run by the landlord and his wife, and very friendly bar staff, which makes your visit a pleasure.

    Good old semi-fashioned interior - none of your trendy watering holes often seen in the locality.

  • Karl

    Total rubbish, I would not recommend this pub. I received very poor service - the only person I saw doing anything was a lad who works in the kitchen. The bar staff stood around reading papers, and the standard of cleaning in the pub is low to say the least. Went in on 11th November 2008 would not go again.

News for Abbey:

  • The Abbey pub, located on the corner of Chesterfield Road and Abbey Lane in Woodseats, is in search of new landlords. Punch Pubs, the company managing the property, has announced the vacancy and is eager to find suitable candidates to maintain the pub's status as a community hub.

    For those interested in taking on this venture, Punch Pubs has outlined an enticing financial proposition. A deposit of £3,000 is required, and the new landlords can anticipate earning approximately £53,986 annually. This presents a lucrative opportunity for individuals or couples looking to progress in the pub industry.

    The Abbey is described as a "beautiful original stone pub that holds endless opportunity." Its charming and historic façade is complemented by a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces designed to cater to diverse clientele. The pub boasts a large bar and dining area, plus a cosy snug for more intimate gatherings and a function room equipped with its own private bar and stage, making it ideal for events and celebrations.

    During warmer months, the pub's beer garden, featuring a large patio area, becomes a popular spot for customers to enjoy their drinks in a pleasant outdoor setting.

    The new landlords will also benefit from spacious living accommodations located on the first and second floors of the pub. This includes a three-bedroom flat complete with a private kitchen and lounge, providing a comfortable and convenient living arrangement directly above the business.

    Punch Pubs emphasises the importance of The Abbey’s role as a "hub of the community." The selected landlords will be expected to maintain and enhance this reputation, fostering a welcoming atmosphere for all visitors. To aid in this endeavour, Punch Pubs has committed to offering support to the new landlords, ensuring they have the resources and guidance needed to succeed.

  • National pub operator Punch is pouring £550,000 into The Abbey pub in Woodseats, creating a flagship venue and providing 16 new jobs for the local community.

    The Chesterfield Road pub is set to reopen on 12th August 2016 with a weekend of celebrations planned, including live entertainment from solo artists.

    Not only is the investment going to transform The Abbey into a true community pub, it will also become the first of a number of flagship sites across the UK that will be used as new training centres for Punch publicans and their teams.

    The Abbey, which sits on a landmark corner of Chesterfield Road, will be rejuvenated both inside and out following the significant investment from Punch. The first floor function room is also being extended to accommodate meetings and gatherings such as parties, funeral receptions and wedding celebrations. The redecorated function room will also include a new bar, large screen projector and IT and sound equipment.

    Outside, the external areas will be enhanced to create a splendid opportunity for both eating and drinking outside. The popular bowling green facilities will also been upgraded to support a community activity that has taken place for generations.

    Commenting on the investment, operations director for Punch, Andy Crump said: "Great care has been taken, working with the planning office, to ensure this transformation is tasteful and sympathetic to the heritage of the pub. The Abbey will be a vibrant, characterful and welcoming venue for all customers to enjoy a quality drinks range and an exciting new menu."

    General Manager, Wayne Morton, added: "The new-look Abbey will provide the perfect venue for customers looking for a relaxed, community pub environment with quality food and excellent customer service. Our experienced chefs and kitchen team will be producing popular pub classics with a twist and a wide range of quality wines, ales and spirits which will complement the new menu. We plan to have regular live music acts from solo artists and hold outdoor events to appeal to all the family.

    "I'm from Sheffield myself and believe that there is a gap in the local market place for a venue like The Abbey and I'm confident that we will be able to broaden its appeal. I'm looking forward to welcoming customers when we reopen on 12th August and would welcome any feedback they might have."

    Commenting on behalf of Punch, Dean Barker-Rogers, launch manager, said: "Wayne has a wealth of experience in the hospitality industry having managed a number of pubs, restaurants and hotels. He has some great ideas for placing The Abbey firmly on the local map as the first choice for customers looking for quality food and drink and a warm welcome.

    "Bringing the function room back into proper use will be a real bonus for the venue. It will provide an excellent place for local businesses to hold meetings with catering available for a wide variety of gatherings. The attractive outdoor space with its popular bowling club is an unusual and interesting aspect to the pub's facilities too. I'm looking forward to continually supporting Wayne and his team as they develop The Abbey going forward."
