My wife and I often go to Newbury as it's not so far down the A34 from Abingdon. It's a good shopping destination now they have opened a new shopping precinct which includes a John Lewis At Home Store.
When we go we always have lunch out and more often than not go to the Ask Italian restaurant. It has recently been refurbished and is one of the better of the Ask chain with very good service and food. The rear of the restaurant overlooks the river Kenneth and has glass doors that open so if visiting in the summer months try and get a table at the rear.
The menu is very good which includes food for small people. Our little grandson just loved the garlic bread.
So if your up for Italian then give it a go we have never been disappointed in this Ask restaurant.
