Bit slow to put this review on as we were in Abingdon Ask a couple of months ago. Family members got together from several parts of the country for my niece's 1st birthday which is of course a very special and important occasion and this location worked well for us all. The restaurant is set in the lovely market town... More

I visited the restaurant earlier this month with my family. The service was great and our food was delicious. Even though it was a busy night we received our food quickly. Overall amazing food and service would recommend this restaurant to my family and friends.

The wife and I often visit ASK for lunch and have never had a bad experience. The food is consistently cooked to a high standard. Service is always very friendly and the staff always have a smile waiting for you. The young girl who works there called Beth is very pleasant and helpful, nothing is to much trouble for her....

A friend and I had an early supper there. She had a pizza which was dry, cold and the spinach looked and tasted as if it was frozen, very unappetising. I had the chicken and mushroom risotto. It was not a risotto, basmati not arborio rice, undercooked, dry and full of black pepper. Very disappointing. Complained to the manager and... More

We arrived 15 minutes late to the restaurant, only to be told that the table had gone. They were extremely busy so this was understandable, however, they said that they would find us another table if we could wait. They then offered us a drink on the house whilst we waited. Within 5 minutes we were seated and the service... More

The food here is always excellent and served well. It's definitely service with a smile. Would recommend for large group outings or if you have kids. Definitely a vibrant atmosphere.

Came on a Thursday night for an early evening quiet dinner. When we arrived, we were greeted by extremely welcoming staff that seemed to have everything under control! The manageress was excellent, and was prompt and polite at all times. Our waiter that we had was attentive and seemed like he genuinely cared about his job which was lovely to... More

Much as usual. TBH only went there as had vouchers to use up and granddaughter loves the pizza. As she did this time. Mushroom pasta was rather bland - needs something to add flavour. Service fine, noise level not - it echoes so much, the music is loud so people talk louder and it just gets noisier.

Went on Monday 19th September with work friends. Had the bruschetta starter followed by the chicken and mushroom risotto dish. The bruschetta was lovely and a nice portion size. The risotto was equally as tasty with nice tender chicken in it. The wait for the food was a bit too long however food was worth the wait. The service was... More
