Great cocktails great food.

I came here with a large group of friends mid week, there's a wide choice. You can choose from a tapas menu, a la carte or a set menu. I had seabass which unfortunately was really over cooked. Dessert was gorgeous, I could've eaten about five! However there was a good choice of cocktails. Our... read more

Been here a few times can never quite work out if its table service or if you need to go to the bar. As per usual no-one comes to the table so go to the bar to order to be told to sit down and someone will take my order (come on the few times i have been here this... More

I cannot fault the service we received when I met up with some chums from school, the weather was fabulous and we were lucky enough to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine. As soon as we were seated our waiter looked after us and was attentive to our every need throughout the afternoon. The food was great, a great selection... More

Popped in after doing some shopping in the Oracle shopping centre. So glad we did, as this place always has a chilled atmosphere on Riverside. The staff are really friendly and very helpful. They go to so much effort with their wonderful cocktails and this really does makes such a refreshing change. When I knocked over my Strawberry Mojito, within... More

We decided to have some quick lunch here mainly because we have eaten here before and it's always been good. But this time the food was nice but the service was poor. On arrival we were seated upstairs, which was the problem because we were the only people up there. The drinks arrived quickly and we ordered our food at... More

All Bar One is a special treat for us. If the city has one of these trendy bars then we always say “Let’s go for breakfast.” Here in Reading, by the canal, on a sunny morning, the terrace is a delight. Very special! We went on a Sunday morning for breakfast. But this wasn’t the best all-bar-one breakfast we have... More

My recent visit was the worst service received so far, it's never been great. I don't think there has ever been an occasion were I haven't had to wait at least 10-15 minutes to be served, either for food or drink. But on this occasion we waited for food, drinks and the bill for at least 25 minutes each time.... More

Everything you asked for seemed to be a huge task for the staff and made us feel a little uncomfortable about asking for the things we needed! Food however was good, nothing special but okay! Good value for money.

Went into All Bar One on bank holiday monday for a late lunch. Ordered a burger, side salad and chips, food was ok , but at nearly £14.00 for a burger on a piece of slate with chips and salad in mini buckets it was a little disappointing. Each bit of the meal had to be eaten separately as there... More

One person on bar, not fast. Also, when I was waiting, he had no idea who was next in line. I am too old and grumpy to be bumped in a queue for over-priced beer. Will swerve this place for a few months. Who knows, they may improve again. I have been in here many times in the past, and... More
