(It is strange to review a place twice, but I really think Ask deserves to be mentioned twice. ) We've eaten her a few times now and have not been disappointed by the overall experience. As it's part of a chain, you know what you'll get and you'll get what you pay for. The old building is a lovely setting... More

We were greeted with a smile and shown to a table and offered menus. We selected courgettes, belly pork and sea bass. Everything was cooked fresh and the taste was out of this world. The profiteroles are lovely. We will come back. Look no further for a memorable experience. Thank you to Bart and your team

Booked a table with a friend for a catch up on a Monday evening. Got there at the time we had booked the table for. We asked if we could sit outside as it was a nice evening and was told we could sit anywhere. We chose a table and started chatting. Half an hour passed. No one came to... More

Gorgeous building and the staff where perfectly attentive and friendly! Could not fault the service that we had, our waitress was brilliant! However the food was generally average, I always want more from ask however I think as a chain restaurant this is just how it is. It's not awful but just average, and pretty expensive for average food, considering... More

Lovely food, freshly cooked, served quickly by friendly staff. Has some lovely soft drinks - the still lemonade was wonderful. The building is a converted church, so has character. We sat outside in the sunshine - only downside to this is that it is next to a busy main road.
