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

All Bar One is my favourite bar in Reading. The music is good, modern, relaxing, and the staff professional and interested. Drinks include Peroni, other lagers, a large selection of wines & cocktails, and spirits. The decor and venue is perfect for a meeting for two, a meal for 8, or sitting in the corner and reading a book. They... More

We asked for nachos and a couple of burgers, literally it took 20 minutes for the nachos to come out, yes they are handmade but to much time. Nevertheless the food was really good and the pulled pork in the nachos and one of the burgers we asked for was absolutely great. 3 Stars because of the time the food... More

I love how dark this bar is, I love how you can sit at a table and it feel cosy and private. We ordered a few nibbles and drinks to sit and chat the night away in a romantic setting
