more of a place for drinks than for food

This place is prbably good for some drinks with a few people-the atmosphere is buzzy and the bar staff are fast and friendly. However if you are hoping to have some food as well I'd say it's not that worth it. I had the pulled pork burger and I wasnt particularly impressed. Bland, standard food... read more

Excellent food and refreshing soft drinks. Good choice of menu. Opted for several small plates for £25. Fresh and tasty. Waitress was really good polite chatty and no faults and it was her first shift. It wasn't very busy especially with slug and lettuce doing 50% off . But I clearly chose the better option and got just as good... More

I have been invited to a leaving do and I was a bit skeptical about eating here as I had only had drinks. I have to say I was nicely surprised about all choices available and some of the dishes were even vegan. Wow! I ordered the Korean rice it was lovely nice and tasty. I will definitely go back...

I like All Bar One restaurants and, whilst this was not the best I have been to, it was perfectly acceptable. The service was ok, although my friend and I were not acknowledged when we entered the restaurant and the staff were by no means busy. I had to stop a waiter and ask for a table. The service improved... More

Nice bar - good for conversation and outdoor seating however not sure whether this is a bar or a restaurant or trying to be both, bit of a shame, However the wine and general ambiance are good so worth a visit - I think it works better as a bar then again I went for drink...

After walking along the Reading City canals, we selected this bar for a nightcap as inside atmosphere looked quite festive. We all selected different cocktails ... South-America tastes ... and enjoyed the time spent at All Bar One. Barmen are efficient and professional.

Under-staffed and/or poorly managed this Friday lunchtime because we waited without even acknowledgment for far too long. Gave up and went next door where we were greeted, given drinks and just about got our food in the length of time we waited at All Bar One.

I often visit here for brunch on a Saturday/ Sunday and I LOVE the place. The team are so friendly and attentive - proper professionals! I recommend their brunch menu especially the full English option. The presentation of food and the ingredients used are of the highest quality which really makes the difference.
