We love visiting ASK, whether it is just us two or with the children (ages 13 and 7) as there is something for everyone and nothing is too much trouble - if you want no sauce on your chicken - you can have no sauce on your chicken. Service is always friendly and fast and the food is lovely with... More

Lunch for three was unhurried. Food was tasty and plenty of choice for my vegetarian friend. Desserts were a generous size and could be shared by two if you just want a small portion - but not on this occasion. On a sunny day there's space to dine al fresco - fingers crossed for the good weather

A group of us ate here after work, a couple of weeks ago. I booked a table for seven people earlier in the week and they only had 17:45 and 20:30 or later appointments available. As we were going from work; I booked the earlier time. I assumed by the time we ordered it would be after 18:00 anyway (and... More

I came in with my family at 6pm for a quick meal as I had children under the age of 7 yrs in our party. I explained it would have to be a quick service as we needed to get children home early. It wasn't very busy , just small tables and one other table of 6. I could hear... More

Visited in a busy Saturday night, Ask is quite expensive but always use Tesco vouchers or offers which makes it a very reasonable night out! The pork belly was delicious, a nice change from pasta or pizza, we shared 2 mixed starters between four of us which was really nicely presented - good atmosphere and excellent service from the staff

Very expensive for what was a quick lunch with friends. Food was nice, but slow service. Friendly waiters and waitresses. Senior management has a bad attitude to criticism, and needs to go on a customer service course.

It's a shame as the food was very good and the service was very friendly. There was a genuine accident when a very friendly lad accidentally tipped a tub of cheese sauce over two of us going all down the tops and actually inside the very expensive handbag. I understand accidents happen but the manager tried to charge us for... More

Ate here on a Monday night with 3 small children. Was quite busy but children were made to feel welcome with crayons and hi fives. Delicious food, especially chips, great value children's menu and good service.

My husband and I come here often for a meal and drinks. Never have we had to complain about the food or service. We think it a great price too!
