Okay food, decent service.

Came for a quick bite to eat before going to the cinema one evening. Meal was alright but nothing to write home about. Ordered the houmous and bread to start which was nice and the chicken pad thai which was okay, but not amazing. Drinks and service was good. All in all, about what you'd expect... read more

This is a great place to go on a Sunday afternoon, there is a very good wine list and a selected interesting wine of the month order quick before it sells out. They have good food and I recommend the sharing platters. Service is very good.

We booked a table for Valentine's Day and asked for the Valentine's menu. The food was very good and the staff was very friendly. However, we think that for this particular night, the music should not be as loud, in order to create a bit more of a romantic atmosphere. Other than that we had a very pleasant evening.

The same as every other All Bar One. Expensive drinks, served by rather grumpy staff. The interior was ok.

We have never been in here before and were pleasantly surprised how welcoming it was. We just had drinks and it was lovely to have the table service, although we were forgotten about when we ordered our second round of drinks. The food going out to the other tables looked delicious and we will definitely pop back for food at... More

Before I go any further I need to say that our family has been to ABO at Riverside many times and for the vast majority of those occasions we have enjoyed it and come away feeling we have had value for money with decent service. However, our most recent lunchtime visit showed the establishment in a very poor light. The... More
