Wimbledon 2014 at The Abbey Tavern

Want somewhere sunny and summery to enjoy the tennis (and pretend you’re in centre court)?

Look no further than the Abbey, where we’ll be showing all Wimbledon matches for the next two weeks, usually on our big screens in the sun-trap outdoor garden.

Our roof terrace and booths are also available to book for large parties if you want to watch the final in style.

So order a couple of jugs of pimms, a delicious hog roast, and settle into these summer days watching Wimbledon at the Abbey.

Could a Brit win it again…?

World Cup at the Abbey

June 24th, 2014



England may be out, but there are still loads of fantastic matches left to catch of the World Cup 2014.

We’ll be showing every remaining match on our big screens, so if you’re looking for a summer venue to watch the football, look no further than the Abbey Tavern!

With our huge new sun-trap terrace, our usual beautiful smoking garden, the spacious bar, and the cosy back-room, there’s more than enough space to watch the beautiful game.
