    Outstanding

    My husband and I had our Pakistani wedding here in August 2020. We wish there were more stars to click on, they TOTALLY DESERVE WAY MORE! Abbington was not a only a beautiful, intimate and well located venue, THEY HAD THE BEST SERVICE EVER. Especially during the pandemic, they did everything to keep it safe and yet enjoyable for all guests.

    We personally want to thank Aly and the general manager Tara. Aly was super welcoming and helpful throughout your entire process and was there at any minute to help you on your special day. They went above and beyond working with us and providing the best service we could ever ask for. We loved our experience so much, that we just went back 5 months later to book another event for our baby shower. :)

    PLEASE DON'T HESITATE, WALK INTO THE ABBINGTON DISTINCTIVE BANQUETS, AND BOOK YOUR EVENT WITH THEM. You will totally not regret it.

    Beautiful venue for a wedding

    I can't thank everyone at Abbington enough for creating our dream wedding! With the pandemic we were worried about the possible changes to everything but luckily we were able to have the wedding we wanted with the help of Abbington. We loved the great communication and the food was delicious and definitely a hit with our guests! Thank you to Abbington and you truly have an asset in Tara. What a warm, funny, knowledgeable person she is and she made our wedding planning so much fun! I will highly recommend this venue to everyone!

    Exceeded Expectations!

    The Abbington was the perfect place to have our wedding! Tara was absolutely fantastic, as was her whole team. They helped make the day perfect, from timing of the day, to the delicious meal, to the details in the place settings. Our families also had very important traditions we wanted to uphold, and Tara/team ensured that everything happened! Everyone was responsive, patient, and helped make things very smooth and safe, even in the setting of COVID. Our day was beyond a dream, and The Abbington is to thank for that!
