We ate at this restaurant one evening as a party of 16. The food and service were very good, despite the restaurant being very busy. The only problems were the music (which was way too loud for people dining) and the heat (we were on the mezzanine, at the back and there was little or no air flowing)

Stopped here for a drink while our daughter was water zorbing. Service was a little bit slow and people pushing past going in and out if you sit outside but that was our choice so probably our fault!!Decent enough drinks but were attacked by loads of flying bugs and stuff. Probably not the restaurants fault but it does get a... More

I have eaten here many times and also gone just for drinks. This is one of the best places in Reading for a tasty dinner and delicious drinks and it's never overpriced or pretentious. The staff in here work hard and are always very professional and pleasant. The menu changes throughout the seasons and there are always new drinks too.... More

Lovely food, great service and real value for money - especially liked the shot of smarties they give you free when you order coffee - would go again

Big crowd of us descended here on a Friday evening to celebrate a leaving do. Good atmosphere, bar food OK to good, prices reasonable for the town centre but oh my! We were eventually driven out by the excessively loud music. We really couldn't hear each other. So we left and spent our money at Cafe Rouge instead.

Went on a weekday evening. Really good atmosphere and decor. The overall noise level in the bar meant you could carry on a conversation without fear of losing your voice. Food was good and the selection of tapas not only tasty but very good value. Would definitely go here again.

We came here one weekend evening for food. The décor was lovely and the bar had a good atmosphere, but it struck me how loud the music was! Uncomfortably loud for anyone hoping to relax and partake in good conversation. The food was fairly standard, nothing special, but was reasonably priced. Both my friend and I felt that menu was...

Stopped a few weeks ago for a quick lunch. Place was nice and tidy and it was nice to see a new menu since my last visit to an All Bar One in Brighton. We ordered a few starters to share and a couple of drinks. My beer was superb lovely and ice cold i asked for a good head... More
