Abbey Mills doesn't get the attention it deserves. It is an amazing space, right beside the Wandle River with a choice few places to eat and drink. With the right investment, it would be the 'happening place' of SW London, however it's also really nice to go somewhere that isn't overcrowded!
Ate at the Italian one night and our calzone was burnt...but otherwise quite good and reasonably priced. Had a really good meal at the Agentinian steakhouse - but we couldn't fathom the menu! Far too complicated! Our waitress was wonderful and helped us choose a great meal. Reasonably priced too!
