Abbots are fantastic - very swift, efficient, friendly and professional. They also quoted me 100 pounds less than another independent opticians for the same work on my glasses which has made me a customer for life! Definitely recommend.

Extremely helpful and courteous opticians. They give a very thorough eye examination and then a great deal of assistance with choosing the right frame options. Certainly the best opticians I've used.

This is a particlarly unusual optician, the time and effort shows in the level of detail which is always indicated by their going above and beyond expected level of service. This husband and wife team have their strengths and customers benefit. I have MS and have had particulirities pointed out to me so I can see my neurologist early on, this is the above and beyond what I have come to expect, but always receive at Abbotts. The wife has the gift of choosing glasses so very well suited to each individual, again attention to detail a strength of both team members. Recommended very highly!!

Caring, attentive and incredibly determined to do all possible help be it my glasses, contact lens and all the claning items that they require. Unlike some of the high profile places I used to use Abbots (Husband and wife team) give fantastic value and allthe help that I need.

Small and cousy optician but with great selection of frames, weather you are looking for something classic or are a young person going for something 'different' but not extravagant. Best service around, helpful and patient. Highly recomment it!

Really good opticians run by husband and wide team, they are both lovely to deal with. Very good advice re my glasses, lenses and choice of frames. I go out of my way to use this optician, they are not really convenient for either where I work or live but are worth travelling out of my way for!
