Pretty much what you would expect really. Decent value and above average food. Service was polite and food came out in reasonable time. No complaints

Great attentive service, food well cooked and presented in a lively atmosphere in a lovely old building with an unused mezzanine floor. Good wines too. Loved the service. Reasonable value

A group of us went to Ask abingdon for lunch to celebrate a special wedding anniversary. Booked online which was very easy and straightforward. Our waiter was very friendly and gave us a choice of table, quick to take order and very efficient. Meals were served in a reasonable length of time and all hot, well cooked and presented very...

The food was less than adequate. My wife had a chicken in mushroom sauce, the chicken was reformed rubber and was disgusting. We had a Jeremy Kyle live roadshow from the hostel opposite (apparently this is a regular thing). The food was p*ss poor and tasteless, the beers were £6.00 each!!!! The meal for 2 came to £50 and we... More

ASK is great for family food: service is kid-friendly and very helpful. Nice staff and the food is pretty good too.

It's a very interesting building and we went here purely because it was close to where my friends work, however, the service was very efficient, the staff were polite and friendly and the food was very enjoyable without being extremely expensive. Definitely a nice place to visit for an occasion

I NEVER write reviews but the staff were so fantastic I had to break my own rules. Sun was shining and the lovely smell of the ovens wafted toward you as you walked in. My OAP dad had a little medical emergency and they were blinding. Can't praise them enough-nothing was too much, so calm and kind. I think it... More

I've been here a few times, but my last visit was so good I wanted to make sure I wrote this review! I've always enjoyed my visits, but it's Ask, nothing special, right? What sets this one apart is the amazing staff. The food and atmosphere are good but the staff, in particular one lady called Sam I think really... More

Very nice inside, looks like a converted bank. Service was very nice, we used our tesco club card vouchers, so meal worked out very reasonable. The food itself was lovely and the Olives, some of the nicest I have ever had.

We popped in on a busy Sunday evening & were made to feel very welcome, even though the waiter was rushed off his feet. The décor is clean & pleasant, with a lovely family feel & there is a good range of food on the menu (including several dairy-free desserts - very unusual for Italian!) The food arrived in good...
