Having read the reviews and spoken to locals we were not going to visit this place. However, after finding the one we had been to before and another closed, we decided to go to Ask. What lovely staff they had on that night Monday 21 July, thank you young ladies, you made my wife and I very happy. The food... More

nice food, but there could have been more of it! Staff were pleasant and attentive, but there was a major cock up with the bill (20 ish of us wanting to pay separately) most people had left by the time we were ready to go leaving my brother in law to mop up the dregs of what was owed amounting...

Restaurant is more like a cafe which was disappointing after visiting other Ask Restaurants. Also the kitchen is at one end and if you are seated at the end of the cafe you are just blown away with all the cooking smells which isn't really ideal. The food is well presented and nice but the portions are poor. My 12... More

Went here for a couple of pizzas and a drink, can't fault the food or service, the manger that day (Friday evening, female manager) there was a snooty couple next to us, who complained about everything while we were sat on the table next to them, and the manager couldn't do enough for them, all pizza chains are very similar...

We fancied Italian and a couple of beers on a Tuesday night in Truro, after a hectic day doing the holidaying bit. We had a table given to us straight away, no need to book mid-week. We were seated and ordered our drinks which arrived quickly. The starters were ordered and came along in good time. Excellent quality. The main... More

When we went in a few tables hadn't been cleared and where we were seated in the benches was covered in crumbs. It just looked a bit grubby, like the staff weren't on top of service. The food however was great we both really enjoyed our food. I had a lobster pasta dish which was gorgeous. Would definitely come back,... More

A group of us having a few days in Truro ate here. We found the food and service to be good, however the experience was tainted by screaming children and babies that seemed to be everywhere. I appreciate that this is not the fault of the restaurant, but feel other diners should be pre warned that it doubles as a... More

I eat here at least. Couple of times a month. I am never disappointed. Staff are always so friendly, food is always amazing and tastes so fresh and Prosecco is delicious! Always excited about eating here.

We eat regularly in Ask. My missus likes their food. I don't mind it. This experience was rather bizarre, however. The waitress who showed us to our table was lovely. Couldn't have been more helpful. Her blonde colleague then took over, and we felt she really couldn't be bothered. I ordered chicken and new potatoes. I asked them not to... More
