|Well worth a visit. Busy upstairs so went into the downstairs bar and this seemed to go on forever. Better choice of ales in the downstairs bar. Had lunch in here and the food was very good and we did not have long to wait to be served given how busy it was with punters waiting for the Grand National. Will visit again for sure.|

|This pub seems to be two pubs in one. Taylor Walker pub. Had some good food and good selection of beers too. If you don't like the beer on the top bar, they seem to have different ones on the bottom floor. Plenty of seating too and served fairly quick.|

|Had a pint of Guinness, which was drinkable apart from being too cold as is the fashion (a general complaint, admittedly, rather than specific to Milnes). Plenty of staff but tables uncleared and uncleaned. Had perhaps the worst steak pie I've ever had in my life having to saw my way through the pastry only to meet further disappointment in the fatty filling.|

|Still not convinced about this place. Went in the other day on hearing of a well-respected barman having shifted to Milne's but wasn't impressed. Prompt service, yes, but the beers just didn't crack it. The stout was lifeless and left no marks on the glass like a good ale should; my friend's lager behaved in the same manner. And, yet again, the stench of chips and tomato sauce prevails.|

|half a glass of beer poured, then left to stand while barrel changed. Pint topped off thereafter. I requested a fresh pint and was told to 'take it or leave it'. I said I dont want it and was then told I was no longer being served - I asked for the manager and was told that the person serving me was the manager.|
I have never been refused service in my life, and am disgusted at this attitude - my colleague and I had been drinking happily for several hours before this stupid and offensive incident. To insult me further, the 'manager' gave the poured beer free to a customer standing beside me and gave my colleague his drink 'on the house'. My views: stuffy atmosphere, poor attitude to product quality, lack of customer focus and belligerent and insulting attitude. DONT DRINK HERE. I went a few doors along to Milnes of Rose Street - great atmosphere, friendly and cheerful staff, good beer and a nice chap called Charley who told me he had been refused drink in the Abbotsford too - because he tried to pay with coins...odds of that seem pretty high so there are bound to be more of you out there.
I will never set foot in the Abbotsford again, warn your friends and colleagues.
