Places to eat & drink in Abingdon.

Occupied in the Bronze and Iron ages, Abingdon - famous in the 20th century for the manufacture of MG sports cars - may well be the oldest continuously inhabited town in England. It stands at the confluence of the River Ock with the River Thames and, thanks to its riverbank site, was important to both the Romans and the Saxons.

A Benedictine monastery called Abbandun was founded here in the 7th century and became one of the richest abbeys in Britain. Surviving parts include a Long Gallery and a hall that has been turned into an Elizabethan theatre.

St Helen’s Church is one of only four English churches to boast five aisles, while one of the town’s two river bridges is over 500 years old. Stone-built County Hall houses the local museum.

We cannot give a full list of all available food outlets but below is a small selection of those available in Abingdon or surrounding areas.

The Spice Valley Tandoori Restaurant

21-27 Oct Street, Tannery Court, Abingdon, Oxfordshire, OX14 5AG
Tel: 01235 538998

With its pine flooring, water fountain, white walls and spotlights, Spice Valley Tandoori is more reminiscent of an Italian or Chinese restaurant than an Indian eatery. Light, fresh and fragrant - these words describe both the food and decor, with most dishes leaving you satisfyingly replete rather than the traditional bloated feeling often associated with rice-based cuisines. The menu itself is incredibly varied, straying from the traditional curry fare to include such delicacies as duck, venison and fish. With prices and atmosphere to match (they even have a pianist at weekends) this restaurant is one of the finest in the region.
