It was pure accidently as I went to this restaurant to ask for direction. The girls were so nice and kind that I decided to comeback and have lunch here. Great surprise as the food was great. The decoration is very clean and great menu variety .

I visited Ask with my mum and sister for a pre-theatre dinner, so we needed a place with tasty food and good service. Unfortunately, our waitress just couldn't really be bothered from the beginning and considering it was only 7pm on a Saturday, they had already run out of one of the meals - surely this is bad planning for...

It was Saturday night so lots people around and staff were up and down the stairs serving food. Starters were excellent,main courses were good. Pudding was something chocolatey so no bad. We had planned on an Etna but they had run out. Nice meal £5.55 for a pint of Peroni meant we didn't have any Peroni!

Arrived at 5.45 for a Saturday night meal wth the kids. Still here almost 2 hours later, having waited over half an hour for our main courses. I know it's Saturday night, but surely you need to be able to serve all your customers in a decent time? Restaurant isn't even full. Won't be wasting my time again.

Easy table booking through the Ask website, very friendly staff. Good variety of Menu options, speedy service at reasonable prices. Only negative is that toilet facilities are accessed via a steep flight of stairs so difficult for anyone with mobility difficulties.

We ate here after a trip to Derngate theatre as it is within a few minutes walk. The food was tasty and decent portion size. We were in a group and was in a separate area however the staff remained attentive throughout. Will definitely come back again
