Nice building, nice restaurant

We went here for my brother's birthday, it was my first time visiting the restaurant and I wasn't disappointed. We had a 25% discount voucher to use from Moneysavingexpert - would recommend trying to get a voucher as 5 mains came to only £40. I had the meat calzone which was OK, it was quite... read more

Took my friend out for her birthday. Ask is always a good bet for food and we weren't disappointed. Service fantastic! Chairs are actually comfortable unlike some ask's I've been to and as it was my friends birthday they helped me out by putting a candle in the dessert. Really appreciated the staffs help and they were friendly and helpful... More

Last minute decided to treat the family for a meal out on Saturday evening. Alarm bells should have started to ring when we walk in at 7:30 to a 3/4 empty restaurant... The service was dreadfully slow. Not only that it seemed impossible to bring all the meals out at the same time. This happened with both the starters and... More

Visited at lunch time with friends to celebrate a Birthday. The restaurant is in an old merchant house, and has some good features.It was only half full and we chose to sit in the conservatory. The menu had a lot of choice and a good range of vegetarian meals. We all chose 3 courses of which all were were very... More

I am an Ask fan and have eaten here many times and enjoyed the meals but it has changed. Can't put a finger on why but service was less than enthusiastic ,no specials board except sprats. Portions ever so slightly smaller and over cooked. I struggled to enjoy the experience this time.

This was our second visit to ASK in Peterborough having previously been at a weekend with family. There is a huge choice on the menu and the portions are generous. We had bruschetta as a starter and struggled to eat the delicious sweets after two courses. The food was excellent as was the service. The restaurant was not overly busy... More

we went for the special menu and it was very limited - all I can say is that for the all reputation and fuss - this restaurant meal was disappointing and quality not too great - all 3 of us felt this way and I have not been back since - if choosing from the main menu it is better

A group of us went here on a Sunday evening and it was really good. The building is very nice, the food was good and the service was ok. We booked online which I like, as it's easy and you can simply cancel really easily if you need to. The service charge of £20 was a bit excessive and had... More

Situated in a lovely building you can choose between the main building, a lovely conservatory or outside if it's warm enough. Over the years the service has gone up & down but recently it is very good with cheerful, helpful staff. Food is good & for me it is one of the better chains in our city.
