Came for drinks on a Wednesday night so it was not particularly busy. We were a large group of about 20. The venue looks nice but I am sorry to say that the staff appear to be completely demotivated. They are losing money for the company by driving customers away. We presented ourselves at the bar and started to order... More

My husband and I were not sure if All Bar One did a kids menu but they do so we sat at a table with our 8 year old daughter and all had burgers, followed by puddings. We were really impressed with the quality of the food. Our waiter Dan made our experience even better! Top guy! Since Miller and... More

From beginning to end the service was excellent. The steak (frites) was one of the best I have had in a long time in terms of prep/cooking and cut. Overall top quality on every level.

After a night out in Reading and a stop-over at the Premier Inn, we ventured around the corner for breakfast at All Bar One. I believe it was £7.50 each, but well worth it. Service was excellent, the quality of the breakfast was very good and all cooked really well. With tea and toast to go with the full English,... More

Had lunch here recently. The 5 tapas dishes for £25 is good value for money and their white wine was well chilled. We were served by Lottie who was excellent. She even found my friend's scarf and hat that he lost as we had moved tables and accidentally left them behind. Will certainly go again. Be warned that it gets... More
