Me and my girlfriend love this restaurant/bar the selection of cocktails is very good and there is an excellent selection of lagers to try. The outside seating is lovely just on the banks of the river and all in all a lovely experience every time. The service is attentive but for the price you pay is more than satisfactory. It... More

We popped in for a quick drink after arriving in Reading for the rewind festival at Henley. Great atmosphere and quick service. Quite busy for 4pm. Overall a great place to meet for drinks.

Very disappointing food. The waiters were very pleasant but service was slow. If we hadn't been in a rush we would have sent the food back but we were offered a discount which we accepted. Would not recommend this place.

Went in for lunch on Sunday, only averagely busy with 2 waiters and a manager serving. Served by a young lad who apologised for service, other one was unfriendly and rude when we asked for a glass of tap water. Became a game to see if we could see him smile the whole time we were there (he didn't!). Drinks... More

We visited on Saturday afternoon for lunch and a few cocktails as a group of 7 girls and we couldn't have asked for anymore from the team at ABO! The service overall was superb, all the food and drinks were excellent, all served in a timely manner but the highlight was our waiter Johnny who was amazing ... so personable... More

Popped in for drinks on Friday and we had the best cocktails and service ever, the espresso martinis were great and served by a chap who I think was the manager. We will be back soon

Oh dear....we used to love ABO but the food quality has just dived over the past few visits. To details.....we ordered an NZ Sauvignon Blanc and weren't disappointed.....we also ordered the 5 small plate deal too. Not a good move. The salt and pepper squid was obviously frozen...and tasteless. The haloumi and chorizo skewers tasted from yesterday. The slow roast... More
