We have just been for a meal at All Bar One in Reading and I was really happy with the experience. The staff members who served us were warm and welcoming and they looked after us well during the meal. They also took time to make helpful suggestions to us when we were choosing what wine we wanted to drinks.... More

Ordered a bottle of wine and a "for sharing cocktail". Neither of the bar staff had heard of the wine and didn't know where to look for it, despite it being on the menu. Eventually I spotted in a fridge after several minutes of them looking. The girl got the instruction book out to make the cocktail, and still managed... More

Poor service in fact no service as we were told to take a seat then just left for nearly 15 minutes. There were only two other people there already served so not like they were rushed off their feet so we walked out. The staff member just smiled and said sorry ladies! !??

This is one of the nicest decorated All Bar One restaurants we have been to. Food is quite good, albeit the variety of menu items could be a bit wider, ambient lighting creates a very warm atmosphere and the restaurant is pretty clean. It's a pretty good choice for the area.

It was a wet late afternoon (5.45pm) and we were browsing the restaurants at Oracle for a bite. They all insisted you need a reservation for a table, despite the tables being only 15% occupied. When we reached the All-bar-one, the waitress mentioned that she cannot do anything about the tables reserved, but if we want to stay in one... More

Third time we've been in a couple of months and each time the service gets slower. Upon arrival there are always plates and glasses left on tables so it makes choosing a table (not seated by waitresses) harder. The food is of a good standard and I always order appetisers, but rarely do they come with my partner's main which... More

Ordered the fish and chips, came quickly and tasted surprisingly fresh. Nice relaxing atmosphere and great staff. Prompted me to make an... More

We nipped in for lunch as we had heard good things, also due to its location and it was fairly quiet so we knew we would be in and out quickly. Located on the Riverside of the Oracle shopping centre next to Bella Italia and Pizza Express. There is indoor and outdoor seating. It has recently been revamped and has... More
