We went as a big family (10+) on the 8th July and had a lovely evening. I wasn't eating as on diet prep for a bodybuilding competition but the acting manager that evening said it was no problem eating the food I brought prepared and to ask if I needed anything. Service was quick for a large party and everyone... More

Had a lovely family lunch. Staff were very friendly and the food excellent. The building is a converted Methodist church with lovely high ceilings. Great menu for gluten free eating too.

'Ask' in Abingdon is situated in a traditional building that clearly has had a previous use. The menu contains a wide range of food choices including starters, pasta and pizzas as well as desserts. In addition there are several items including sea bass which is served piping hot. Staff are pleasant, and discounts from the menu prices can be obtained... More

We visited a couple days ago on a lovely evening. It was very busy because of the weather and the staff apologised as soon as we arrived as they had not expected it to be so busy. However, the service was great and everything we ordered arrived far more quickly than we expected. The chefs were flying around the kitchen... More

Had dinner next door(Italian restau).Was disappointed with what we're treated next door so we moved to ASK for dessert and you can really feel the difference with how the staff accepted and treated you well. A very excellent dessert was on the table as well....That's a bonus. Next time,we'll come back here for a full meal.

We needed somewhere quick and reasonable. Ask came good. We ate outside, the service was excellent. The menu had something for everyone. Our choices of pasta were very good. Good wine too.
